Description

If you are on MacOS 10.15 (Catalina), please allow Screen Recording in System Preferences / Security & Privacy. For assistance, please contact our 24/7 support engineers.

Application to mirror the screen and audio of your Mac to an Amazon Fire TV. You can also stream individual video files from your Mac to your Fire TV. Also, we included the option to watch one window on your Mac, and another window on your TV!

Before using this application, please go to the Amazon website and install the (free) Mirror Receiver for Fire TV: http://bit.ly/am-firetv

In using the app, there will be a about 2 to 3 seconds of latency (lag). So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.

However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more!

The quality of your experience will be dependent on the quality of your local network. Some tips to enhance the experience:

1. Restart your router. Just take out the power plug, wait 10 seconds and put it back in. This resets your router and will make your home network faster and more stable. Why this works? Routers are in essence little computers, with software. Software will have small memory leaks and some processes will stop working correctly over time. That’s why it is a good idea to reset your router once in a while. Our recommendation: once a week.

2. Don’t do network intense work while screen mirroring. As explained, screen mirroring is network intense. For the best performance, don’t do other network intense work at the same time. This includes making timemachine backups over the network and uploading/downloading large files from the internet while screen mirroring.

3. Put your Mac and your Fire TV on the same router channel. Some routers (dual band) have create both a 2.4Ghz and a 5Ghz wireless network. For the best performance, put your Mac and your Fire TV on the same network. Preferably the 5Ghz network. But definitely not the Mac on 5Ghz and the Fire TV on 2.4Ghz, because that will negatively impact the performance of screen mirroring.

4. Use an AC or N router. Newer routers support Wifi AC and N. Older routers might only have Wifi B and/or G. B and G are not really up to scratch anymore for modern networking tasks, so go for an AC or N router. If your router supports AC and N, also make sure that your router is set to use either the Wifi N or Wifi AC networking.

How the app works:
First, make sure that your Fire TV is on the same local network and same subnet as your Mac. After launching the app, you will see the app icon appearing in the top bar of your Mac and the app will look for your Fire TV on the network. It will show your Fire TV when it has found it. Now, you have two options:

Mirror your Mac Screen:
Use this option to put the screen of your Mac on TV. In source, you can select which screen (or attached monitor) you want to display on TV. If you are running multiple applications on your Mac, you can also select which application window you want to see on TV.

Enable Sound: check this to hear the sound of your Mac coming from the TV. You will need the additional (free) audio driver, which you can download here: http://bit.ly/MirrorAudio

Play Video File:
Use this option if you have a video file on your Mac and you want to play just the file on TV. Drop it in the box and it will play on TV.

Settings (the icon in the bottom right of the app): click here to request support from our 24/7 support staff. They usually respond within 2 hours on any query that you might have. If your question is technical, please also include the diagnostics information.

Limitations: Apple has HDCP DRM protection for playing iTunes movies. This means that screen mirroring is not possible when watching movies from iTunes.

When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!

There is a significant lag

I was just wonderign if there is anything I can do to reduce the lag time? Right now its around 5 seconds. Its manageable but I was expecting it to be real time. Im unable to access any settings within the app i was wondering if I needed to chnage a setting or something. 1 I understand this is probably a more difficult process then I realize but I did invest money in this app and would like it to be seamless.

Hi, thanks for your purchase. We regret to hear that you are having issues with the latency. This should be around 1-3 seconds. However, there are a number or reasons that can be the source of this problem (e.g. network (not the same as internet speed), computer or TV settings). Please contact us through the “send diagnostic information” option in the app. Our support staff is available 24/7 to help you out. Thanks!

Please also make sure to turn down the sound of your device and turn up the sound on your TV. Lip Sync should be fine this way.

Great App and Customer Service!

I love this app. It allows me to mirror my work from my computer to my screen. There is a bit of a lag from what's being done on thee computer to when it actually appears on the screen, but other than that, it works great!

One of the things that matter most to me is that everything that I use needs to work properly. I had an issue with getting my computer to recognize my tv at first, but after speaking to someone in customer service, they were able to have me up and running in 2 minutes! Excellent!

What I needed

After a few mis-steps, I finally got the app to work as described! Really helps me to watch my workout videos on a screen larger than my Mac, and to catch up on missed tv episodes pulled up on my computer. Customer service was quick to respond to my issues of not being able to connect. FYI -if you try the free trial, delete it from your device before installing the full version.
