The chances are video is going to look better on your TV screen than it will on your Mac. You may as well make use of your big HD TV screen, but if the content you want to watch is on your Mac, then you may need to use casting or screen-sharing technology.
Ready to learn how to stream from Mac to Samsung TV and watch content from your computer on your television? Read on to find the best solutions out there and how you can use them.
AirPlay is Apple’s inbuilt solution to cast or share videos on an external display. While watching content on certain apps such as HBO and YouTube, you can hit the AirPlay button and connect to a compatible device. You can also use your Control Center to screen mirror everything that is on your Mac screen and cast Mac to Samsung TV this way.
Apple and Samsung notoriously don’t mix well, but screen mirroring Mac to Samsung TV is possible depending on your television model. The latest version of AirPlay is AirPlay 2, so you need to check if your device or TV supports this before you cast.
There is a simple way to check that your Samsung TV is AirPlay2 enabled before you connect your Mac to Samsung Smart TV models.
Keep in mind that firmware updates may impact compatibility, and it is possible that Apple will upgrade its AirPlay in the future, which will also change the devices so it is capable of connecting.
Models of AirPlay 2 compatible Samsung TVs include:

AirBeam is a basic tool for mirroring from Mac to Samsung. It offers compatibility with a variety of other hardware and devices and has no problems connecting to Samsung Smart TVs. That said, it doesn’t offer much extra. It’s good for both screen mirroring and casting individual files but doesn’t offer you any additional playback features or functions.
If your TV does not support AirPlay or you’d prefer to do things the “old-fashioned” way, then you can use an HDMI cable, taking the output from your Mac and connecting it to your TV. This works best with a Mac Mini, where you don’t have a monitor, or even with a Macbook.
To get connected, you will need an HDMI cable, and you may also need an adapter. If your Mac doesn’t have an HDMI port, then you can use the Thunderbolt or DVI port, but you will need a Thunderbolt/DVI to HDMI adapter.
