Stream Anything from your Mac to Apple Tv Using AirFlick

You can now stream anything from your Mac to your Apple Tv using "AirFlick". AirFlick is an new App for your Mac through which you can Airplay (Stream) anything from your Mac to your Apple Tv including Images, Videos and much more. This is an great simple App, you doesn't even have to Jailbreak your Apple Tv use this App.

Erica Sadun is the creator of "AirFlick ". AirFlick right now is an Alpha version so you might face some bugs using it.
According to TUAW:
How to Add Live Conversion to Erica Sadun's AirFlick App
Ok, by doing this hack, you can stream ANY video format sitting on your Mac to your AppleTV. I'm testing out an mkv file right now, and it works like a charm!

  • Download the unofficial Mac AirVideo client here. Start playback of a video using live conversion from within this unofficial client, it should hand off the streaming video to Quicktime X.

  • Inspect the stream by viewing the Movie Inspector (check the "Window" menu for Quicktime). Write down that url.

  • Paste that url into Erica Sadun's Airflick app and boom now your AppleTV can basically play any video you throw at it! Looking forward to someone streamlining the process into a neat little app.

  • Download AirFlick – Alpha Stage

    Here is the Demo Video of Airflick:

    AirFlick offers the potential of real-time transcoding of otherwise unsupported file types into Apple TV-compatible data. It also allows you to open videos located on the Internet by pasting a URL and clicking the play button. I was able to watch a number of Internet Archive ( mp4 videos on a big screen TV by browsing that website, selecting URLs, and opening them with AirFlick.
    AirFlick works by transforming your Mac into a we browser, the same way AirPlay works on your iPhone or other iOS device. For Mac-based files, AirFlick tells your Apple TV to connect to a local URL and serves the data that the Apple TV plays back. So long as those files are in a supported format such as mp4, m4v, mp3, etc, the Apple TV can read and display the file data.
