Android devices currently don't offer the native support for AirPlay. In case you are about to try streaming videos or music files from your Android device to a Mac with Elmedia installed on it, you'll need a third-party app on your Android phone or tablet that supports AirPlay.
So here are the steps to follow in order to AirPlay from your Android to Mac:
Note 1. The order of the steps might slightly differ for each AirPlay supporting app for Android. If you have questions, look into the Help section of the app you are using.
Note 2. In case you don't want to get "Access requested" prompt each time you are starting an AirPlay session, go to Elmedia Player Preferences -> Streaming -> AirPlay and there instead of "Request access" option choose "Connect and Play".
Something to keep in mind: Free Elmedia Player offers 1 minute of streaming/receiving of music and videos to/from AirPlay devices. If you feel like this product is exactly what you need and works great for you, don't hesitate to get the PRO version - you'll be surprised how much more it offers in addition to streaming.
A really cool thing that comes with streaming of YouTube, Vimeo and Dailymotion videos with Elmedia Player is that the built-in ads WON'T be included in the streaming. Use Open Online Video option for this.
Note: Elmedia Player PRO can currently stream all popular formats (except for SWF and EXE). The app automatically detects embedded subtitles and subtitle files associated with a streaming video. A wide range of subtitle formats is supported.
As mentioned earlier, Elmedia Player PRO is not for streaming only. Among its other capabilities it offers you to download YouTube videos on your Mac: switch the player to Browser mode, go to the YouTube video you want to save to your hard drive and click Download. You can save it in a range of supported formats and resolutions. If needed you can save the whole YouTube playlist on your Mac in one go.
