How to AirPlay Mirror YouTube to Apple TV from Mac

There is a huge difference between watching your favorite videos on a small screen of your Mac and on a large HDTV. Just imagine an awesome experience of watching romance, action, thriller or sci-fi on a bigger screen. The bigger screen gives you the pleasure of experiencing vivid emotions of love, fear, comedy, thrill et al.

But the million-dollar question is: how you can beam YouTube to the bigger screen using Mac OS X El Capitan? Well, perhaps we have got the answer to this question. The AirPlay feature on your Mac makes it possible for you to stream YouTube content to the bigger screen.

AirPlay has been successfully sending videos to Apple TV from Mac since 2010. And now, it has become quite easier and better to perform this action.

In earlier Mac OS versions, it was easy to transfer the entire Mac screen to Apple TV (though it is easy to share even today). It was done in two ways: from the System Preferences pane for Displays and through the Menu bar item that you can enable in System Preferences.

All you need to do is click on AirPlay Display drop-down menu in System Preferences, or click on the Menu bar item to transfer entire Mac display accompanied by sounds to any Apple TV.

Today, El Capitan allows you to transfer YouTube videos from Safari browser; for Chrome users, they will have to wait for some time.

Step #1. Launch a YouTube video.

Locate AirPlay option in the lower right corner of the video window. You will see this option to the left of the Full-Screen icon.

Step #2. Click on AirPlay icon.

This will send your YouTube video only to the Apple TV, and not the entire screen of your Mac. Why should you show anybody what is going on your Desktop? A message will appear on your Mac screen that the video is being played via AirPlay.

Once you watch the video, click on the AirPlay icon and turn off AirPlay. Now, you can go back to watching video on the small screen of your Mac.
