Elmedia Player transcribes the convenience of AirPlay into your everyday usage with a range of handy playback and streaming settings developed with every level of a user in mind.

The support for AirPlay is quite profound in Elmedia Player. As an AirPlay sender it'll stream local music and videos from Mac to Apple TV or another AirPlay enabled devices (e.g. another Mac computer, Android devices, etc). Elmedia Player can also work as an AirPlay receiver when you stream local videos and music from an AirPlay device (it can be another Mac, iOS, Android device) to a Mac with Elmedia Player installed.

You can also stream web videos to AirPlay enabled devices with the help of Elmedia Player. When you AirPlay online videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, or Vimeo, Elmedia can stream them without the in-built ads that you would otherwise have to watch or wait to skip.

Note: Currently for devices running iOS 9 and later Elmedia offers audio streaming only.
