Mirror for Roku

By AirBeamTV BV

Application to mirror the screen and audio of your Mac to a Roku Streaming Player, Roku Streaming Stick or Roku TV. You can also stream individual video files from your Mac to your Roku. Also, we included the option to watch one window on your Mac, and another window on your Roku!

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 Roku 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 TV on the same network. Preferably the 5Ghz network. But definitely not the Mac on 5Ghz and the 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 Roku 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 Roku on the network. It will show your Roku 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.

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

This major upgrade introduces direct video file streaming to TV, a new user interface making the app easier to use and more efficient, and a number of new features.

1. Play video files directly on TV
If you are playing a video file and don't actually need Mac screen mirroring, streaming the file directly is a better option than playing it on Mac and mirroring the screen, for the following reasons:
•The file playback is likely to be more stable, have no interruptions. This is because a file is not a live source, while the computer screen is. Thus file streaming is much more tolerant to the local network speed and reliability, as well as to the computer CPU load.
•The CPU load is much lower when streaming a video file, because the application doesn't need to perform real-time video encoding.
•If your file has a standard 16:9 aspect ratio, it will fill perfectly the TV screen. When playing it on a Mac screen first, the apect ratio changes, and black borders appear on the TV (or the image must be stretched).
The majority of the common video file formats are supported.

2. The new user interface
We have completely redesigned the application user interface. The new modern user interface provides a better look and feel, and easier and faster access to all the settings.

3. Mirror any window instead of the full screen
You can now mirror any open application window to the TV, instead of the full computer screen. Even if this window is hidden, minimised to the Dock, or resides on a different Mission Control space. This enables you to use the computer and the TV screens for different purposes at the same time.

4. Scale the display to fill the TV screen
Because the screen aspect ratios are different, the application normally adds black borders when mirroring the Mac screen to the TV screen. Now you have the option to stretch the computer screen instead.
