AirFlick Will Stream All Your Mac’s Video To AppleTV

AirPlay may have been a little bit of a disappointment upon arrival, but TUAW’s Erica Sadun just keeps on managing to make it better. Just a week after her release of AirPlayer, an app that tricks AirPlay into thinking your Mac’s an AppleTV, comes her brand new tool, called AirFlick… and it’s everything that AirPlay should have been out of the box.

What does AirFlick do? It allows you to stream video content from your Mac to your AppleTV: AVIs, MP4s, even streaming video files on the Internet. You name it! “It” being non-Flash video.

Essentially, AirFlick extends the abilities of your AppleTV to stream content from your computer besides hosted iTunes files. It turns your Mac into an AirPlay data server. It’s a super impressive alpha, and knowing Sadun’s talents in the hacker space, we won’t be surprised to see her software get more impressive from here.
