AirPlay Alternative Mirrors and Streams To TVs and PCs 62

DeviceGuru writes "AirTame has developed an AirPlay-like protocol and HDMI dongle for 1080p video streaming and screen mirroring from PCs to PCs and TVs, and has substantially exceeded its $160,000 Indiegogo funding goal. AirTame streams from Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs to other PCs via apps at both ends, and to TVs via the HDMI dongle, and also offers a multicast mode for broadcasting to multiple PCs and TVs for use in classrooms or conferences. But at least initially, there won't be support for Android or iOS devices in the mix, due OS restrictions. The company says it plans to release AirTame's software, API, and protocol source code under a dual-license enabling free use with GPL-like restrictions, and paid use for commercial applications requiring proprietary modifications."

    I find it notable that there is no mention of miracast anywhere in the GoGo description. Isn't this what Miracast is supposed to deliver?

    Yet another one to add to the list.

    WiDi, Chromecast, AirPlay, MiraPlay, DLNA and now this all in the already over crowded and virtually unusable 2.4GHz spectrum. Yet I still can't get my Samsung Galaxy S4 to stream to an Android dongle!

    Connecting... Single frame... Black screen... wait wait wait... single frame... time out.
    Oops, format not supported.
    Video blocked due to lack of DRM! Fuck you!

    TBH, at $35 Chromecast seems like the best chance at the moment, but I have to buy another dongle that I can't modify to accomplish what I want, putting my OWN video overlays, pop-ups, and security cameras on my TV. Also, Google.
