Mac: We love Quicksilver, the great Mac app launcher that does so much more than launching. Thanks to a feature called Triggers, you can turn almost any action or script into a keyboard shortcut. That now includes switching AirPlay sources on the fly.
To toggle AirPlay sources with the press of a few keys, you'll need the following:
Once you have all that, open up Quicksilver and hop into its preferences to create some triggers:
- Click on the Triggers tab and click the + button on the bottom bar. Choose HotKey.
- Choose one of the scripts as an item and type Run for the action (although it'll most likely fill itself in automatically).
- Save the trigger and assign it a hotkey of your choosing.
Repeat this process for the other script. When you're done, you can toggle AirPlay sources with a hotkey and even make a script click a menu and choose the source when a video goes full screen and hides the options.
