However, as reported previously for AirParrot 1.1.7, AirParrot 1.2 for Windows is still defective on my Acer Aspire 1810T running on Windows 8.1 Preview, too. AirPlay mirroring my PC’s screen to my Apple TV 3 still stutters every time I try to AirPlay videos to my Apple TV. In addition, I got sound problems to fix.

The well-known function of AirParrot for Mac or AirParrot for Windows mirrors the computer screen to Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation). Using Reflector for Mac or Reflector for Windows PC turns your computer into an AirPlay receiver and enables AirPlay screen mirroring from iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to computers.
