"Makes Apple TV even better"

January 05, 2013  |  By yakkie1

 |  Version: Beamer 1.5.3

Pros

So easy to use! Just drop any video file on your Mac onto Beamer window with Apple TV in use and it will start to play. Playback and other features can be controlled with the Apple TV remote (or the learned remote). There is no jailbreaking and no set-up required. It just works!

Cons

Fast forward is "blind." You do not see the progress, just a time-line. But this is a weakness of Apple TV, not Beamer.
Some mkv files drift out of sync, but this can be fixed by running them through MKV Tools (or MP4 Tools) first, and that only takes about 60 seconds. The latest version may have overcome this flaw, but I am not sure yet.

Summary

It's a great bang for your buck. It handles almost any video file without having to convert it and add it to iTunes. Try before you buy, then buy it before Apple buys them out!
