🍎 Apple TV & IPAD Desktop Stream Windows 10 | Windows 7 HowTo Stream ANY PC To ANY Apple TV


Hey Guys, So in this video I’m going to show you how
to stream your PC’s Desktop video and audio using ANY version of windows to ANY Apple
TV using VLC. You will need: The VLC AppleTV App
VLC The Screen Capturer Recorder software
I’m using an older version 0.10.1. and IF Stereo Mix is not already installed
on your PC. the Realtek High Definition Audio Codecs Stereo Mix was already installed on my windows
10 desktop it just needed to be enabled but I did have to install these codecs on my windows
7 PC. The reason I installed the stereo mix codecs
is for better sound quality compared to the virtual-audio-capturer that installs with
the Screen Capturer Recorder software. Now…The secret to getting the VLC desktop
stream setup to work is (drum roll please) you need two versions of VLC. You need a current version and an older version
which still allows audio and video desktop streaming that’s the secret guys. Two versions. I will link in the description box below all
the mentioned softwares. I will also link the older vlc.exe version
that I’m using which currently allows VLC desktop streaming. You can use any current version of VLC for
your day-to-day usage. Please note you can only have one version
of VLC installed on your PC but the second older version of vlc will be sharing the same
preference settings so any update to preferences will
be reflected on the old vlc.exe and your currently installed version of vlc. You can copy the older vlc folders onto your
PC drive, NAS or Flashdrive. I have placed the older vlc version on a flashdrive
and NAS to allow me to easily stream any PC on my network by sharing
that older vlc.exe file. So once you have the Screen Capturer Recorder
software installed you will be able to access it from VLC. The Steps are: First Create a shortcut pointing to the older
vlc.exe file and Open it. Click on Help Then About and check that the
version is 2.1.5. NEXT 1)Select Media>>>Stream>>>The Capture Device
Tab>>Capture Mode should be Direct Show 2)Select Video Device Name as screen-capture-recorder
3)Select Audio Device Name as Stereo Mix 4)Select The Stream Button
5)Select New Destination HTTP 6)Select The ADD Button
7)The default port is 8080 but you can change it if this port is already in use on your
PC 8)You can name the path anything you wish
but The source and target stream information needs match. I’ve named my path forward slash /TheGeez001
9)Select NEXT 10)For Profile Select Video H.264 + MP3
11)And Finally Select STREAM Please Note: To save time going forward you can save the
selected details from the “Generated stream output String” box into a file on your desktop
and the next time you want to stream your desktop you just need to select Media � Stream � Capture Device � Screen-Capture
and Stereo Mix then Stream Then Press Next � Next � Next � Next
and Cut then Paste your Desktop Details into the “Generated stream output String” box Then
Select Stream or you can use the batch file I’ve linked
in description box below. You just need to update the path
location of your older vlc.exe and your selected port and path details. This batch file will use the default virtual
audio vs stereo mix so the audio quality may not be as good but it is a quicker setup. Check that the bottom left counter is incrementing. Now minimize VLC and Go to the VLC App on
your phone to verify the stream. 1)Select Network Stream
2)Enter http://your pc’s ipaddress:Your selected PortNumber/Your selected PathName
forward slash 3)Press Open Network Stream Since I’m recording on this same pc you will
see the mirroring effect. I’m going to demo streaming with a different
PC’s desktop. If you are having issues connecting check
that you don’t have multiple VLC.exe’s running from Task Manager at this time. If you do kill them all and re-do the stream
or you may have some other application using port 8080. You can run netstat -a -n -o | find “8080”
to check and if it is. Select a different port if necessary One great thing about this setup is you can
connect to the same PC stream from multiple streaming devices at the same time from anywhere
in your home. Now let’s go the AppleTV VLC App to connect
to the stream. Go to Network Stream then input http://your
IP Address , Colon and the Port and Path Name you previously entered then press done. and Viola. Please note this streaming setup will not
work for gaming or things of that nature because there may be a lag. If you are having buffering issues it is possible
to create custom stream profiles reducing your stream resolution. I will link those details in the description
box below. So once you are done streaming you can close
the Old Vlc.exe version. I differentiate between the two VLC versions
by giving them different DeskTop Shortcut names. For example you can call the old vlc.exe shortcut
something like “FOR DESKTOP STREAMING ONLY”.
