Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Samsung Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed! You can also stream individual video files from your Mac to your TV. Also, we included the option to watch one window on your Mac, and another window on your TV!
This works on any Samsung Smart TV from the 2012 models onward. Which model year do you have? You can see that by looking at the middle letter in your model type (on the back of your Samsung TV).
E = 2012
F = 2013
H = 2014
J = 2015
K = 2016
M = 2017
N = 2018
Q = QLED (supported)
UE55_E_S8000 = 2012.
UE78_H_U8500L = 2014.
In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.
However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more!
The quality of your experience will be dependent on the quality of your local network. Some tips to enhance the experience:
- Preferably, connect your TV by LAN cable to your router.
- Use a Wifi ac router. If you don't have one, then an "n" router.
- Try not to overload your wifi network by moving big files around while you are mirroring.
How the app works:
First, make sure that your Samsung TV is on the same local network and same subnet as your Mac. The TV should not be in screen mirroring mode, but just on "TV" Mode or any HDMI IN port.
After launching the app, you will see the app icon appearing in the top bar of your Mac and the app will look for your TV on the network. It will show your TV when it has found it. Now, you have two options:
Mirror your Mac Screen:
Use this option to put the screen of your Mac on TV. In source, you can select which screen (or attached monitor) you want to display on TV. If you are running multiple applications on your Mac, you can also select which application window you want to see on TV.
Enable Sound: check this to hear the sound of your Mac coming from the TV. You will need the additional (free) audio driver, which you can download here: http://bit.ly/MirrorAudio
Play Video File:
Use this option if you have a video file on your Mac and you want to play just the file on TV. Drop it in the box and it will play on TV.
Settings (the icon in the bottom right of the app): click here to request support from our 24/7 support staff. They usually respond within 2 hours on any query that you might have. If your question is technical, please also include the diagnostics information.
Limitations: Apple has HDCP DRM protection for playing iTunes movies. This means that screen mirroring is not possible when watching movies from iTunes.

- Screen mirroring is now possible with the 4K Ultra HD resolution. When displaying high-quality content, this achieves the highest image quality on the TV screen. 4K Ultra HD mirroring requires a Mac with Retina display and a 4K-capable TV.
- We now use hardware acceleration on 2011 and later Mac models. This achieves better performance and leaves your CPU available for other tasks.
- Bugfixes and stability improvements.

Great App.! More Importantly - Awesome Customer Support.!
This is a best app available on Apple store for Samsumg TV to mirror with Mac. I also had a very nice customer support experience. Once I setup the app it was working fine on my Mac. One day it suddently stopped working. I tried many attemps and different thing, but none worked. They have a link in the app it self to connect to developer via facebook (you can literaly chat with them) and to send diagnostic information. I got instantly connected. They are very responsive, and chatted with them on facebook to explan the issue. They quickly guide me through steps to check/take actions. Apparently mac firewall was blocking the incoming connection from TV. Within 15 minutes my issue was resolved. Thanks to developers.
Worked great 1st time and I’ve been using it for about a year with no issues. It would be nice if the developer could add support for more audio and video codecs is my only suggestion for improvement.
I noticed /thought it was broken after using it for a week or two when it wouldn’t play a video file. The support is on their facebook page which seemed odd, but they responded pretty quickly to my facebook messenger and told me the problem which was that my particular video file was not supported. The tech support was very helpful and I’ve been using it with no issue since.
Definitely worth it!
While cycling on the trainer I can now mirror my Mac Airbook running Zwift to a Samsung Smart TV using this app while using the airbook’s bluetooth to connect to the Wahoo trainer/cadence/heart monitor. As a bonus I then use a bluetooth connection from phone to audio receiver to select music while cycling on Zwift. Since my AppleTV goes thru the receiver I could not bluetooh Wahoo, mirror Zwift, and separately control music. This solution works but have to look on the AirBeam site on how to configure the Mac firewall to allow it to run. Airbeam could make this support easier to find on their site tho.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
