Using the Ditto Configuration Utility

The Ditto Configuration Utility works on Mac and Windows. It’s designed to allow quick and effortless addition of rooms to a Ditto account. Once you add the rooms, anyone can share their Mac or PC screen to a room's Apple TV, Chromecast or Reflector-connected TV or display.

Before we begin, make sure your receivers (Apple TV, Chromecast or Reflector) are powered on and your computer is on the same network as the devices.
