Mirror Mac to Apple TV
Most users will choose to mirror Mac to Apple TV straight through AirPlay when faced with this task. It’s the built-in function for that and many people consider it the only way to do it.
Apple AirPlay was designed to stream video, audio, photos, documents and other files between various Apple devices and it supports all that in real-time. However, if you find yourself in the situation of needing more advanced functions that are not supported by AirPlay, you need an alternative.
This is where JustStream shines and there are several reasons for that.

How to Mirror MacBook to Apple TV using JustStream
- As a default setting, the first available device in the list is selected unless you specify another one.
- If there are no devices in the list to mirror Mac on Apple TV, make sure that the TV is on and also connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Click on "Refresh device list" option in the JustStream menu to update the list.
Note: You can also start mirroring directly by simply double-clicking on the monitor you want in the list, or by selecting the Start Mirroring option from the context menu that can be accessed by clicking the ... (More) button for the device you want to use.
The mirroring will then begin and the screen of your Mac will be displayed on the device.
As a default setting, screen mirroring is on mute. To activate audio when mirroring, please install JustStream Audio Driver and allow it to have access to the microphone (for macOS 10.14 or later).
JustStream Audio Driver is a virtual audio device designed to capture the output sound and loop it back as an input to Mac. This gives JustStream the capability of recording the Mac’s screen along with system audio and send them in a unified stream to the Apple TV. This type of loop-based input is recognized as a microphone by macOS and that’s what generates the need to approve access to it.
