Airplay lets you wirelessly show off your iPad photos on TV via Apple TV. If you don’t have an Apple TV, you can try stream contents from your iOS devices to Mac.  This passage will show you how to play slideshow from iPad on your Mac.

1 Download, install and run X-Mirage on your Mac. Make sure your iPad and Mac are in the same Wi-Fi network.
2 Tap Photos on your iPad and select the picture you wan to begin with. Touch Slideshow button on the upper right corner, you will see all available AirPlay receivers in the Slideshow Options window, select your Mac (I choose X-Mirage because I change the Mac name to X-Mirage. X-Mirage allows you to set name for your Mac, so you can quickly find your Mac when there are multiple AirPlay receivers.) and then click Start Slideshow.

Stream movies from iPad to Mac

AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream movies, music, and photos from iOS devices or Mac to your HDTV with Apple TV. But if you don’t have an Apple TV or don’t want to send so much money, you can try X-Mirage, which works on your Mac, can mirror iOS devices screen or stream movies, photos and music from iOS devices to your Mac.

Today, I will show you how to use X-Mirage to stream movies from iPad to your Mac.

To begin with X-Mirage, you’ll need:

  • Mac(to install X-Mirage on)
  • iPad 2, 3, 4, iPad mini, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch 5
  • Wi-Fi

Getting started

1. Download, install and run X-Mirage on your Mac.


The tutorials on the interface is for enabling AirPlay Mirroring on iPhone and iPad running iOS6 or iOS 7. When you enable AirPlay Mirroring on your iOS devices, the screen of iOS devices is mirrored to the Mac installed X-Mirage. Here we are not using the AirPlay Mirroring, but AirPlay.

2. Run apps that are AirPlay-enabled and hit the ‘AirPlay’ icon.

Open apps you want to watch videos with on your iPhone, iPad or iPod and play any videos, find the AirPlay icon and hit it, choose X-Mirage[your Mac name] in the Devices list, then the video is streamed to your Mac.


3. You can control the play on your Mac.

X-Mirage allows you to set AirPlay Name, so you can quickly find the Mac you want to mirror to if there is more than one AirPlay receivers. You can also set password to prevent others mirroring your iOS devise, since iOS needs the password when connecting.
