Beamer for Mac3.5

16 February 2021

Stream any movie file from your Mac to Apple TV or Chromecast.

What is Beamer for Mac

Beamer streams to your Apple TV or Chromecast.

  • Plays any movie file - Just like the popular desktop movie players, Beamer accepts all common formats, codecs and resolutions. AVI, MKV, MOV, MP4, WMV, FLV. To Beamer, it's all the same.
  • High quality image and sound - Unlike Screen Mirroring, Beamer is specifically optimized for video playback at the highest quality and supports 5.1 surround sound. No glitches, clicks, pops or other shenanigans. The video looks just as good as it would on your desktop.
  • Easy Subtitles - Beamer automatically detects embedded subtitles and associated subtitle files. If possible, subtitles will be selected automatically based on your Apple TV's Subtitle Language preference.
  • Remote Control - You can pause, fast-forward and rewind the movie using the Apple TV remote. No need to get up from the couch!
  • Start now, finish later - Beamer remembers what you have watched and at what point in the video you stopped watching. When you return to Beamer, everything is exactly where you left it. Just press play and continue watching.
  • Or keep on watching - You can queue up a bunch of videos in Beamer to watch in succession. Perfect for planning a care-free TV night when you don't even want to leave the couch. Popcorn not included!

The app appears to have been abandoned. The support page is unavailable and the “Report a Problem” feature is broken, probably because the support page is gone. The current version is Intel only, meaning it has not been updated for Apple Silicon. The program used to work well, but not great. When I couldn't stream to my Apple TV using TV or iTunes beamer would take up the slack. It also worked with more formats than iTunes and didn't require adding a video to my library. Now, unfortunately, it is useless.

Not working with tvOS 13 anymore. Seems no longer maintained. Just do yourself a favor and get Airflow instead.

Don't waste your money and time on this app because the developer has clearly abandoned it. Beamer now offers virtually no functionality. It requires the user to constantly start and restart it and after awhile, the few controls built into it (play, stop, skip back, skip forward) have stopped responding.

The app works amazingly well for me. I can basically drop any video on it and get it on my AppleTV through AirPlay. No problem in Mojave once you add it to the Accessibility preferences.

IT DOES WORK ON MOJAVE! You just need to use AppCleaner to uninstall it, then reinstall it, and manually go into System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility and check Beamer, then launch it.
