Beamer 1.6 Beta

Beamer has released its 1.6 beta: http://beamer-app.com/beta


You can stream MKV files (and nearly all other) with surround sound directly to your ATV. No more remuxing, simply drag and drop. You can even drag and drop STR files with subtitles in Beamer.

Only some issues with large MKV files, hope they fix this soon.

Great app!

It does any 1080p up till a certain size. I played Skyfall at a 10BG size and it went stuttering. Playing another Sfyfall at about 4GB went without problems.
So yes, they still have issues with large files, but I don't exactly know where the cut-off is. Just have a try with the free demo and see what it can do for you.

Well I think a 10GB is always supirior to a 4 GB movie, as it simply contains more movie data. The 4BG movie was good, but there was some picture noise which I did not see in the 10GB Skyfall. So, a little drop in quality should be normal I think.
