As it stands, my Apple TV is hooked up directly via HDMI to my television. I have 2 amazing speakers that I use bluetooth to connect to and play from when I'm NOT using AirPlay. When I switch to AirPlay, the sound comes from my TV speakers which sound terrible, instead of my higher-quality bluetooth speakers.

Can I cast my MacBook's video stream via to the TV via AirPlay, while routing the audio through Bluetooth instead of my TV Speakers?

Just figured it out -

  1. Connect to AirPlay, so that both video and audio streams are going to the TV

  2. Open System Preferences > Sound. Click "output" tab.

  3. Select your bluetooth speakers.
