Video: New app can stream video from Android devices to Apple TV

Transferring media between devices has always been a hassle, especially when it comes to transmitting videos from a phone or tablet to a television. Google has taken a stab at eliminating the frustration with Chromecast, but Cyanogen’s Koushik Dutta (or Koush) wants to make the process even easier by taking additional hardware out of the equation and making use of the devices you already have in your home. AllCast is an Android app that will stream video from your phone or tablet to any DLNA-compatible streaming device connected to your TV. In the demonstration, Koush streams his video to a Roku box, an Xbox One and a Samsung Smart TV — and even to the Apple TV. AllCast is still in beta, so if you want to give it a try before its official release, you will need to join the ClockworkMod Beta Testers group on Google+. Check out the app in action in the video below. More →
