App sends variety of video codecs to Apple's media streaming box
Apple's "hobby" Apple TV may not have been the first to market, or the most flexible, but it was the cleanest interface and easiest to use of all the media streamers. Bound to the iTunes ecosystem, it allowed for simple connection and content navigation for all levels of experience. However, for the experienced user, the limit on codecs the device supports is a bit of a problem. A few solutions exist for wider codec playback, but one that promises simplicity is Beamer 2.0 by Tupil. The simple app purports to allow drag-and-drop playback of nearly any video file to an Apple TV, but how well does it actually perform?
