AirPlay from my macOS Desktop

If you have a macOS computer (MacBook Pro, iMac, etc.) you can use AirPlay to mirror your desktop to an Apple TV device that is connected to the same Wi-Fi network. There is currently no option to AirPlay directly from the player.

Note: If you are able to AirPlay to a non-Apple TV device, this is AirPlay 2 which we do not support at this time.

  1. Connect your Mac to the same Wi-Fi network as your AppleTV device.
  2. On your Mac, click the AirPlay icon in the top menu bar. It looks like:
    1. If you don't see this icon, go to the Apple menu in the upper left corner, then navigate to System Preferences > Displays > select Show mirroring options in the menu bar when available.
  3. Choose your AppleTV device. Be mindful of choosing the correct device if multiple appear in the list. If an AirPlay passcode displays on your TV screen, enter the code on your Mac.
  4. Your TV will begin to mirror your monitor's display. From here, you can navigate to the video in your web browser on your Mac and begin playing the video.

To control the player (pause, fast-forward, rewind, etc.) you will need to use the player controls on the video in your desktop browser. The AppleTV remote cannot control mirrored screens.

If mirroring does not work, consider using an iOS device instead, which includes the option to AirPlay directly from the player.
