Watch videos in VLC on your Mac and play the audio over AirPlay. No need for a sub-par video player. AirVLC controls the awesome VLC video player that you already know and love. AirPlay causes a delay in the audio, which makes videos unwatchable. AirVLC helps to overcome that by setting the correct delay, based on your setup.
It works with local files and YouTube. This means you can watch any .avi, .mkv, .mp4 you have, but it also works with YouTube, Vimeo and quite a few other online videos. Select files on your Mac and drag them all over to AirVLC. If you select multiple files, VLC will automatically put them in a playlist.
The same goes for online videos. Just drag the thumbnail or link onto AirVLC and it’ll handle the rest.
