You can do it by installing third party programs or set up an AirPlay-enabled software on your Windows device. The installation of Windows 10 OS is already taken up 12%+ share among the DeskTop OS. As a Windows fan who likes to catch up with the trends, surely you are excited to experience this far out platform, but how to AirPlay videos (4k/8k) from Windows 10 to Apple TV?
Without installing any third party utility or any plug-in, 5KPlayer is what you need for AirPlay 4K/8K video audio from your Windows 10 computer including Microsoft Surface Book, Surface Pro 4 to Apple TV 5/4/3/2 for its built-in AirPlay function. It turns your Windows computer to a universal streaming sender and receivers!
