Beamer

3.3.4
08 April 2019

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

Overview

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!

Beamer 1 was the best, Beamer 2 is perfect ;-) What I like the most, is the ability now to have playlist, quick forward and the pause and restart where left... Bravo the developer. Pat

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 Seems no longer maintained.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.

Was once a very satisfied user, but am now sick of this app! Numerous bugs (on my 4g Apple TV, 2014 iMac and most recent OS) have already been mentioned and contacting support from this maker seems pointless since most who've tried report that they get no response. Worst of all, I've found Beamer sporadically refuses to play even common .mp4 and .avi movie files and if it does, it plays them only for a few minutes and then disconnects. At this price, there should be regular bug fixes and updates, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Shame on you Tupil!

Every month that has passed since my last review of Beamer has only shown more bugs and unreliability to crop up. Beamer used to be "mostly stable," but now it barely ever fiunctions. Either iota chokes on certain file types, or it starts up never to stream ANY video to AppleTV or it will start to play most video formats, only to stop 1-2 seconds later. I regret the hours and dollars I have wasted on this app and wonder if the developer has no shame since (s)he appears to be incognito regarding updates or answering paying customers' appeals for assistance. All my software and hardware have been the most up-to-date. Moral of this story: Lillies that fester smell far worse than weeds!

Contacted customer support 3 times and no reply - and I am a paying customer. Horrible, or should I say non-existent customer support. Crashes on installation with Mojave. Not recommended.

My opinion is that this version does not work perfectly, it constantly loses the Wi-Fi connection with Apple TV 4K.

I am having the same problem and failed to get a reply from Beemer's customer support. Surprising!

This is a gem of a little application that comes in very handy on my 2010 MacPro which does not support AirPlay as fully as later generation Macs. It does what it is supposed to do and is a snap to use.

"Just works" with Apple TV and also works perfect with Chromecast - but make sure you tick the Googlecast Use Multichannel AAC Audio box or it won't work.
