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.

I LOVE this software but the 10.9 requirement is a shot to the heart though. My media server is an older Core 2 Duo Mini that will only run up to 10.7.5. I'm crushed....

I'm in the same boat. The media server is an old White Macbook running 10.7. However, Beamer 1.0 continues to work fine.

At the moment I updated from version 1.7.7 without any problem. Update costs € 9.- and could be done from inside the trial of beamer 2. After a short test I find it very stable and easy to use and with the new additions it is a very important app which runs without problems in 10.9.2. The new interface looks more like Apples Quicktime Player and I like this. Thanks to the developers.

See noivad.10Centuries blog for full review. Bottom Line: Recommended if on 702.11N or above. But lack of network selection, and lack of audio output selection reduce its rating to 3.5.

hmm… not sure what a 702.11N network is… must be a typo. (Meant 802.11N ;) I wish MacUpdate allowed edits.

Good piece of software...

it only lacks option for automatic subtitles that would beamer find in local directory and push to apple tv...

automatic subtitles option as it exists now depends on apple tv settings and requires user to manually elect or manually rename subtitle files which is annoying

A brilliant bit of software, has always worked flawlessly for me. Everyone with an ATV should own this software. Brilliant. The developer is working on queuing files and that will make this impossibly better when that happens. Buy it!

Beamer: Drag, Drop, Watch!

  • No Conversion Needed
  • Beamer plays all (OK, almost all) movie files, so you don't need to convert your videos. AVI, MOV, MKV, WMV and FLV files will play just fine.
Trial version plays first 15 minutes of each video.

The AirPlay Movie Player for Mac... Watch any movie file on your Apple TV without hassle. No need to convert the video or jailbreak your Apple TV. Just open the movie with Beamer and you're done; the video will start streaming to your Apple TV right away.

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... Unlike Screen Mirroring, Beamer is specifically optimized for video playback at the highest quality. No glitches, clicks, pops or other shenanigans. Your movie files look just as good as they would on your desktop.

5.1 Surround Sound Support. If you have a nice home cinema set, you probably want to put it to good use. Screen Mirroring is limited to stereo sound, but Beamer preserves surround sound in movie files for your pleasure. Works with Dolby Digital and DTS.

Easy Subtitles... Beamer automatically detects embedded subtitles and associated SUB and SRT 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!
