Stream from iTunes to Apple TV with new Remote app
Apple has released an update to the iOS Remote app and it offers some pretty significant feature updates, but perhaps most significantly is AirPlay support. This means that using Remote you can now stream videos from iTunes on a computer (Mac OS X or Windows) to an Apple TV.
Features of Remote 2.1 are:
- AirPlay video support so that you can stream iTunes to an AppleTV using the Remote app
- Internet radio control for streaming radio within iTunes on the computer to an iOS device
- Control iTunes on your computer from an iOS device to play movies, TV shows, and other content from the iTunes Store
- Several bug fixes and stability and performance improvements
As usual you can still control iTunes on your computer from an iOS device too, which is why it’s called Remote in the first place.
Remote is a free download via iTunes App Store and runs on all iOS hardware running 3.1.2 or later. If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you should grab this, it’s a great app.
