5KPlayer is an all-rounder media player you didn’t know you needed. If you’ve been using the QuickTime player or the VLC player, it’s time for an upgrade. Especially if you tend to mirror or screen content from your iPhone to the Mac. Usually, you need to connect your iPhone to the Mac using a cable. Unlike the Apple TV, there’s no built-in AirPlay feature for iPhone to Mac. 5KPlayer brings that to your Mac.

5KPlayer helps you play any kind of content on your Mac. Plus, you can wirelessly stream any kind of content from any device thanks to the support for the open DLNA streaming protocol and Apple’s AirPlay protocol.

Just How Simple AirPlay Streaming Is

Once you install 5KPlayer on your Mac, you don’t have to do anything else to enable AirPlay mirroring. It’s activated and it works seamlessly. Just start the media on your iPhone or iPad and tap on the AirPlay button. Here, you’ll see your Mac’s name, with the icon of Apple TV next to it (the app basically simulates an Apple TV on your Mac).

Tap on Mac’s name and the media will start playing in the 5KPlayer app on your Mac instantly! In the same way, you can use the Screen Mirroring option from the Control Center to mirror iPhone to Mac/PC using 5KPlayer.
