AirPlay on Apple TV is a great feature that transforms iOS device like iPad iPhone into a media hub to send music, photos, podcasts, and videos throughout your house or office. But is it possible to AirPlay computer to Apple TV if you feel your Mac OS or PC is not big enough? As the built-in Apple TV AirPlay doesn't provide such option, the free and professional AirPlay server 5KPlayer can help you do exactly this.
Step 1: Free download 5KPlayer on your Mac (to AirPlay PC to Apple TV, go to the windows version of 5KPlayer) and launch it. Note that your Apple TV is connected to the same WiFi network as your computer before you AirPlay Apple TV.
Step 2: To AirPlay from Mac to Apple TV, click AirPlay button on the top right corner on the interface and you can see a list of airplay receivers. Choose Apple TV. The AirPlay button will go red if it is enabled.
Step 3: Add the films, TV shows, videos, songs etc. you want to stream through Apple TV AirPlay. Then 5KPlayer will start to AirPlay video audio to Apple TV automatically. The whole process to AirPlay from Mac to Apple TV (or PC) is quick with not a bit loss in quality. While AirPlay video music to Apple TV from Mac or PC, you are also free to do other things on computer, like browsing the web.
Another cool feature of this AirPlay server is the ability for computers to not just send media over AirPlay, but also to receive it from iPhone iPad that is on the same Wi-Fi network. So Apple TV is not the only AirPlay device and you can have your iPhone iPad play back on computer. Amazing, isn't it? However, more surprise comes with 5KPlayer. Integrating the features of free movie player and online movies downloader, for no reason should you miss this free powerful media player!
