- ALAC.dll is reported as trojan, virus or spyware?
ALAC.dll is a packed DLL which cannot be analyzed by virus scanners and is therefore falsely reported as trojan, virus or spyware. We assure you that ALAC.dll will do no harm to your system and your data. Please set an exception to your virus scanner and report us your virusscanner manufacturer. We already reported this DLL to Avira, Norton (Symantec), Sophos, Avast, Kaspersky, Bitdefender, McAfee, Panda security and Norman. Avira, Avast, Norton (Symantec), Kaspersky, Bitdefender and Sophos already do no longer falsely detect ALAC.dll. If the Alac.dll is still detected please check for an update of the virus definition.
Updated version maybe redetected and need to reported again. Please report us a problem and we take care of that.
(Update)Since version 22.214.171.124 this problem should not appear.

The Installer tries to set an exception on the Windows firewall for Aerodrom. If the Windows firewall service is disabled the installer makes an rollback with and error message. Please enable the Windows firewall service to avoid that problem.
If your license key fails please try to enter it in the correct manner. It is a single line of code. Please make sure you have no charater in front or the end. The license key contains no line breaks!
If you got further installation problems please try to use msiexec and create a logfile of the installation. Send us the logfile and we will check for your problems.
- How can I check Bonjour for Windows is installed and running?
Normally Bonjour for Windows is installed if you install . If you don't have iTunes installed you can download Bonjour for Windows under http://support.apple.com/kb/DL999. It is called 'Bonjour Print Services for Windows'.
Make sure the Bonjour service is running Bonjour and not blocked by your firewall.
- How can I make an AirPlay enabled app (e.g. YouTube) find my PC running Aerodrom?
Make sure that both the iOS device and the PC are connected to the same WiFi network.
Check the firwall settings of Windows for Aerodrom and Bonjour. Check your network adapters. Disable VMware virtual network adapters and try again - Those virtual adapters sometimes cause problems.
What should I do if I encounter discovery issues?
First close the AirPlay enabled application. Stop the application double clicking the home button and removing the application. Restart the application.
What should I do if it still does not discover?
Restarting the Aerodrom application on the PC and/or restarting your iOS device should fix the discovery issues. Check your WiFi router's settings. If your WiFi router supports interface isolation or WiFi isolation, make sure that these settings are turned off. These settings prevent wireless devices from communicating with each other. Refer to the documentation that came with your WiFi router to access its settings.
I can only stream the audio part of my video application. What should I do?
You are experiencing discovery issues. Follow the troubleshooting steps described above. Once the issue is fixed you should see a screen icon next to your computer's name in the AirPlay list and not an audio icon.
I can't stream audio at all. What should I do?

You are experiencing discovery issues. Follow the troubleshooting steps described above. If this does not work, please also try deactivating your Firewall, and switch off 'Personal Hotspot' mode.

The video engine cannot connect to the streaming server. Please check your proxy settings in Internet Explorer. The default Aerodrom video engine uses Windows Media Player (WMP) and WMP uses the proxy settings of Internet Explorer.
With your error message you will get a link like (http://192.168.1.107:7001/1/ff608deb-6bf4-5114-beec-f780ef45e47c.MOV). Try to paste this link in MediaPlayer and check the detailed error message. Maybe you are just missing a video codec.
This info should be obsolete since version 188.8.131.52
Aerodrom can use VLC media player to render certain video types (.mp4, .m4v, ...). You will need to install VLC 2.0.1 or greater (can be downloaded here) on your computer and select it in the aerodrom settings.
Apple introduced a new video streaming format called HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) for use on iOS devices. VLC 2.0.1 is the first player which supports this new format on the Windows platform. There are still some possible bugs with the HLS support but it looks very promising for the future.
Many third party apps are currently using HLS to stream video content. These apps are now supported by Aerodrom.
