New app alert - Beamer! Drag any movie file onto Beamer and it will start streaming wirelessly to your TV with Apple TV instantly.
Unlike Screen Mirroring, Beamer is specifically optimized for video playback at the highest quality. What's more, you can pause, forward and rewind using the Apple TV remote. No need to get up from the couch.
Which video formats are supported?
You can download the trial to test any obscure file format you may have. We aim to offer smooth playback for all movie files on all supported Macs. If you have a video that doesn't play well, we'd love to hear about it.
Why use Beamer and not Screen Mirroring?
Beamer offers smooth playback and consistent quality, because it builds a buffer of video to prevent stuttering.
Beamer also enables playback control (pause, fast-forward, etc.) using the Apple TV remote and you can still use your Mac for other tasks while the movie is playing.
Can Beamer play DVDs and DVD-rips?
Are subtitles supported?
