SofaPlay Lite allows you to play media files directly from your Mac on the tv. It connects your Mac to your Smart TV and takes care of the streaming. Just drag any movie file onto SofaPlay Lite and it will appear instantly on the big screen in front of you. SofaPlay Lite streams your video wirelessly to your TV.

No configuration needed, no hassle. Just drag and drop.

Your Mac is completely controlling and managing your TV and taking care of the streaming. Just lean back on your sofa, get some pop-corn and enjoy a movie, or two.

*** SofaPlay Lite allows unlimited photo and image streaming to your TV, but video streaming is limited to two minutes. ***

IMPORTANT: SofaPlay Lite is working with devices, which are supporting the UPnP/DLNA Digital Media Renderer standard. Fortunately, most of the new TVs are working with SofaPlay Lite. Also, there are a few supported Blu-Ray Players. If your device has a network connection (wireless or wired), there is a great chance it is supported. Before you download SofaPlay Lite, please use this little app to check if your device is compatible:

Does not work

Error, "Page could not be loaded" ,

Great Solution

Our Xbox and Desktop CD/DVD players don't work and I wanted to watch a family movie on our TV. After confirming this app would work with our device, it proved to be a great solution.

Dont waste your time on the lite version.

The app picked up my xbox but it would have been nice if they were more up front about the 2 minute limit on the lite version. Show me ads or something to make up for the free version, what the hell am I supposed to do with a 2 minute limit?? Waste of my time.
