Beamer 2.0.5 Build 20024

Straightforward media player that enables you to render video files and stream them to your Apple TV, without having to mirror the entire screen.
The latest Mac OS X releases include support for AirPlay mirroring which means that you are able to send your entire screen to other Apple devices that support the protocol. Beamer is a media player that uses the service to send only a specific video to your AppleTV screen.

Minimalist media player featuring basic playback capabilities

Beamer is able to render most common video file formats, such as AVI, FLV, MKV, MOV, MP4, or WMV. The application’s main window displays the movie image, while the bottom toolbar provides buttons for frequently used functions: play / pause, a slider bar for navigating the file, a button for accessing the playlist panel, and one for enabling the AirPlay function.

For your convenience, Beamer also allows you to control the video by using keyboard shortcuts or your Apple TV remote, and enables you to associate subtitle files to your movie.

Seamlessly stream videos to you Apple TV without too much hustle

Beamer is designed to help you play movies on your Apple TV without having to transfer the file, or integrate it into your media library. All you have to do is open the file by using Beamer, and then launch the AirPlay mirroring from within the application.

The utility offers you the possibility to play the movie in full resolution, in full screen mode, and at the full frame rate. At the same time, Beamer is optimized to play the audio content at the best quality possible.

Uncomplicated media player focused on AirPlay mirroring and ease of use

Since the AirPlay functionality is integrated within the operating system, you do not have to use third party applications to mirror your screen to other devices that are able to handle the protocol.

However, Beamer proposes a user friendly manner of dealing with the media content that will be streamed, and offers you the possibility to mirror only the movie, not the entire desktop.
