HBO NOW, the new standalone streaming service from HBO, has gone live on Apple TV and other iOS devices yesterday. Although you can’t sign up to HBO NOW on your desktop, you can access the new service on hbonow.com via Mac or PC after signing up on Apple TV, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
I have a YouTube channel where I upload gameplay videos of the games I find interesting. But it has been a bit idle recently thanks to the dearth of good screen capturing softwares. I have been researching to find an ideal one, but most of them are directed towards Mac. As a PC user, I finally got the desired results with AirServer.
Netflix comes on top of my “Apple TV-uses” list but AirPlay mirroring is a close runner up. The flexibility it provides is unlimited as you can show off almost anything on your HDTV with just a tap – it can be movies, games, webpages, presentations and what not. Though this works great if you are an Apple-only guy, for a person with a Windows PC or an unsupported Mac, this feature is fairly out of reach and that is where this post comes in.
AirServer for PC, one of the world’s most advanced AirPlay receivers, has been updated to version 2.0 which brings a long-awaited recording feature, allowing you to record whatever is happening on your iPad or iPhone with the push of a button. The new feature is available on all supported Windows platforms including Vista, 7, 8 & 8.1.
The developers of AirServer, an AirPlay receiver for Mac and PC, are completing the works on the long-awaited Windows version with recording and need your help with real world testing. So if you’re feeling adventurous, visit their download page, grab a copy of “AirServer for PC – version 2.0 beta with recording”, try it out and don’t forget to give your feedback after a couple days of hard testing.
