With the Evercast desktop app version 3.0 or higher, participants can output a shared video stream to a connected Apple TV.
Evercast is supported on Apple TV 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation. For best performance, your Apple TV should be hard-wired to Ethernet.

If you would like your Apple TV to receive a multi-channel (surround sound) stream from Evercast, follow these instructions from the Apple website.
From your account dashboard, click the "three dots" button on the top right of your room tile, and select Apple TV sign-in.
Alternately, you can hover over the main window while a stream is playing. A down-arrow icon will appear in the top corner of the stream window.
Click the arrow and select Output to Apple TV.
A window will appear asking you to enter the code from your Apple TV.
If you enter the correct code, you will get a green success notification. You are now waiting for the room owner or room admin to approve the Apple TV login request.
Entering an invalid code will present a red error message.
If the room owner or room admin is not in the room, you will also get a red error message.
Once a stream is playing, it will display in the room:
and on the Apple TV:
To avoid hearing double audio, you can mute the stream in your Evercast room so the sound is only coming from the Apple TV. To mute the stream audio, go to the stream thumbnail and click on the "three dots" button, then select Sound off.
To stop a stream from playing on the Apple TV, double click the Home button on the Apple TV remote. Then swipe up on the Evercast Apple TV app to quit the app. Press the Home button again to return to the Apple TV home screen.
