Comments and Reviews
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:
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.
Ahh! Thats exactly what I do with my damm mountain lion which I updated from the system update

Just installed this app There are no windows as you might expect but no problem Using to mirror my video playlist from iSkysoft Video Coverter Works Flawlessly What a great bargain for ten bucks Try it free for seven days You will want to buy it right off
Just trying this to extend an Mq1 Mac to an old 2013 iMac. Needed to install reflector also to make it work and if purchased currently, that's about £38 GBP in total. Crashed a couple of times also. If you want a basic extender, I'd try Deskreen which is donationware. Personally considering Luna Diaplay. This is based on my personal needs, but may be perfect for other scenarios...
Airparrot is the worst app I have ever used. I use a Mac and so far it has crashed my Mac 8 times and worked for a cumulative 5 minutes. Customer service is slow and unhelpful. Avoid this product like the plague
Works good. Sometimes crashes on first start up.
