Occasions that the videos or music need to be streamed to PC/Mac or Apple TV pop up very often nowadays, such as listening to music of iPhone on PC/Mac, and projecting a video to Apple TV. While under most circumstances, the streaming is failed due to the lack of free AirPlay server. AirPlay is a media controlling protocol developed by Apple Inc. to stream media between devices.

Official Clarification: Since Apple has strengthened the "sign & countersign" for AirPlay Bonjour protocol, 5KPlayer for Windows does not support movie/music AirPlay at present.

Step 3: If 5KPlayer acts as AirPlay sender, click the AirPlay button beside the progress bar or the right top of the window while the video or music is playing to activate AirPlay and to select the device to stream to and then you're good to go.

Please note that to successfully stream media, the AirPlay sender and receiver must share the same WiFi.
