And thanks to fixes made in macOS Big Sur, Aerial's user interface will also be translated soon. If you want to help translate in a language, please post a message here, we use a tool called lokalise that makes it really easy to contribute.


Many people contributed over the years to the documentation, providing improvements, corrections and typos. Thanks again to all of them for sharing a bit of their time and helping. Special thanks also go to Zev Vel who wrote the entire FAQ on this site, on top of many corrections.


On top of the classic AppleTV videos, Aerial now plays an additional 20 videos Aerial now includes kindly shared by Joshua Michaels & Hal Bergman. If you enjoy them, consider checking out their website for more.
