Mac setup

Clicking on the link above downloads a file that contains the AirMedia Mac OSX 3.2.1 client (the latest version as of June 16, 2020) into your downloads folder. Open the DMG file and drag it into your Application folder to install it. (If you have the previous version installed, it will be in a Crestron subfolder in the Applications. The new version installs within the application folder itself.)

NOTE: Previous versions of the AirMedia client also installed a program called 'SoundFlower' that enabled audio to be transmitted from the Mac to AirMedia. The current version now has built-in audio drivers and no longer installs SoundFlower.

Windows setup

AirMedia installs like any other application. Answer 'OK' or 'Accept' to any prompts asking for permission. Once installed, the AirMedia shortcut looks like this:
