AirFlick Streams Video from Mac To Apple TV Without iTunes

Erica Sadum has just released AirFlick for Mac OS X. AirFlick allows you to stream video files from a Mac to an Apple TV (2nd gen) without having to go through iTunes. The most exciting aspect of this new app is its ability to stream content from websites directly to an Apple TV. Currently, only compatible video formats can be streamed, but as this app matures, more file formats will surely be added. AirFlick is currently available for download, but it is still very early in its development and carries a 0.01 version number. It’s still worth a look though, even if it does have a few bugs that need ironing out.

Apple Releases iOS 4.2.1 for Apple TV 2

Apple has released iOS 4.2.1 for the new Apple TV which was previously running iOS 4.2. The new firmware is build number 8C154. Strangely although the previous ipsw was labeled iOS 4.2 the Apple TV reported a lower firmware version for many. It’s not clear if this update corrects the discrepancy and brings the version numbers back in line.
It’s not known yet if the new firmware brings any additional features.

As noted by Apple, major issues addressed by the update include:

  • TV resolution fix – Addresses an issue that causes some high-definition TVs to incorrectly display at 480p.
  • Download fix – Addresses an issue that may cause a movie or TV show to be re-downloaded.

You can download the update from our download page.
