about AirParrot Aug 2012

I recently upgraded my late 2009 iMac to Mountain Lion with the hopes of being able to use AirPlay direct to my Apple TV, and learned very quickly that it was impossible on my hardware.

I was pointed toward AirParrot and I was thrilled to learn about a free trial (good for 20 minutes of usage, unlimited times.)

During the trial, I was able to set it up to my liking with the help of Kyle, the friendly staff who was answering as many questions as I would throw at him.

Here is my media setup at home:

  • External harddrive is connected to my iMac
  • iMac uses Plex Media Server to serve up media regardless of format and platform
  • Plex (the player client) accesses the Plex Media Server to play movies
  • AirParrot connects to the Apple TV and either mirrors the monitor or streams a specific app (coolest feature)

If you are like me, you want to be able to use the computer while you stream to the television, or at least have the option to. This may be app specific, but Plex allowed me to set the Audio output to be AirParrot, meaning the audio I stream to the Apple TV was separate from the audio I had playing on my iMac.

Overall, definitely worth the money to get AirPlay working on older Apple hardware that isn't necessarily supported in Mountain Lion's AirPlay abilities.
