AirPlayMirror Receiver has just gone on sale for $2.99. This is the first time this app has dropped below its regular price of $4.99. This is the newest AirPlay app to be released for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. It allows Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks to receive AirPlay video and screen mirroring from iPhones, iPads, and iMacs the same way the Apple TV works. One very interesting feature of this app that no other AirPlay app can do is display up to 4 different Apple devices simultaneously, with each device’s video displayed in its own window. I have not tried this app yet myself, but you don’t need to rely on my testing because the developer offers a free version that lets you try the app for 15 minutes before committing to buy the full version. The app is compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models.
Real buggy, freezes on load. Works for OS 10. Also worked from osx but a bit choppy on my i5 MBP. Has this silly gray status bar on top shows connection duration and airplaying device name. Worked well with youtube. I cannot recommend it because the freezing and silly status bar.
wow it would be great if amazon would get some developers working on their fling protocol. I keep a roku around just for those times when I want to send something from my windows laptop to my TV.
They should fix Miracast to work with windows. Fling is for mobile development and not desktop yet. I am doubtful either will happen.
On the meantime, there are Cast to Kodi extensions in chrome and Firefox. MrMC, Kodi and SPMC should all work when the upnp renderer is enabled.
There is also airreciever and airplay/dlna pro. These apps are native and run as a background service. In addition to airplay they have DLNA renderers. I haven’t tried but they may work with edge browser’s cast option provided content isn’t from protected.
I thought the reason they came up with Fling was because they didn’t want to support the open standard miracast.
I’d be happy with any solution. There are still too many streaming websites that don’t have firetv apps.
