Native streaming protocols make it easier to connect to Airtame. They do not require an app and they are already on your PC, phone or tablet.

The native streaming protocols are:

  • Airplay for iOS and macOS (available for both Airtame 1 and Airtame 2 devices)
  • Google Cast for Chromebook and Android devices (available for Airtame 2 devices only)
  • Miracast (P2P and Miracast over Infrastructure) for Windows and some Android devices (available for Airtame 2 devices only)

They are disabled by default in the settings of an Airtame device, and if you would like to use them, they should be actively enabled.

How to enable AirPlay

  • Open your Airtame Cloud account or create one at airtame.cloud.
  • The Airtame device needs to be updated to firmware version 3.4.0 or later.
    Check out how to update.
  • Select a device and go to "Edit Settings".
  • Enable AirPlay.

You can learn more about the feature here: Present to Airtame with Airplay.

How to enable Google Cast

  • Open your Airtame Cloud account or create one at airtame.cloud.
  • The Airtame device needs to be updated to firmware version 3.8.0 or later.
    Check out how to update.
  • Select a device and go to "Edit Settings".
  • Enable Google Cast.

You can learn more about this feature here: Present to Airtame with Google Cast.

How to enable Miracast

  1. Open your Airtame Cloud account or create one at airtame.cloud
  2. The Airtame device needs to be updated to firmware version 3.9.0 or later. Check out how to update.
  3. Select a device and go to "Edit Settings".
  4. Enable Miracast.

Make sure that these requirements are applied via the device settings, if you would like to use Miracast P2P:

  • At least one of the Airtame's access point is enabled.
  • You must password protect your Airtame access point.

Miracast over Infrastructure does not need an Access point to be enabled.

Network requirements for native streaming protocols

Before enabling native streaming protocols, please make sure that these ports are open on your network:

With Miracast P2P, you won't be affected by network firewalls, because the connection is via WiFi directly between the Airtame device and your PC. But you might encounter some of these situations:

  • Your Windows PC might have a firewall configuration that prevents to stream. This issue requires inbound rule for allowing bidirectional TCP traffic through local port 7236 on Windows side.
  • For video streaming, Miracast can use any UDP port from 1024 to 65536, which is randomly assigned by the PC.
  • At the moment, we do not support Miracast over Infrastructure but we will consider implementing it in future releases.

Miracast over Infrastructure has the following network requirements:

  • Discovery takes place in P2P mode even when utilizing Miracast over Infrastructure, so a presenter needs to be within proximity of the Airtame-equipped display to get started.
  • TCP port 7250 needs to be enabled in both directions as it’s required for Miracast traffic.
  • Miracast over Infrastructure relies on mDNS for discovery, so UDP port 5353 should be enabled on the network in both directions. During discovery, the Airtame device also sends its IP address in WiFi beacon frames.
  • If the Airtame device and PC are in different VLANs/subnets, mDNS needs to be configured across VLANs. Learn more: Setup auto-discovery and multicast routing between VLANs.
