I installed AirBeam TV for streaming to a non-Apple TV device.

I have now uninstalled it but somehow the audio driver is still installed when I check the sound setting. It is annoying that very often I have to go and change the setting to 'Internal Speaker' as it keeps defaulting back to AirBeam TV.

Is there a way I can manually delete this. Note that to Audio Driver for this streaming app was downloaded separately and I just clicked to run it. It has somehow installed into a directory which I do not know how to navigate.

First, find out what driver version(s) you have installed. Go to System Preferences -> Sound -> select the Output tab. Look at the list of the sound output devices.

If you see “AirBeamTV Audio”, you have the audio driver version 2. To uninstall it, you need to delete /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/HAL/AirBeamTVAudio.driver

Detailed instructions:

  1. Open Finder
  2. Use the menu “Go” -> “Go to folder…” (or press Shift + Command + G)
  3. Copy the following path: /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/HAL
  4. Click “Go”
  5. Delete “AirBeamTVAudio.driver”. You will need to enter the administrator password because this is a system location
  6. Reboot your computer. After the reboot the driver will disappear in the system sound preferences

If you see “AirBeamTV”, you still have the audio driver version 1. To uninstall it, you need to delete /Library/Extensions/AirBeamTV.kext

Detailed instructions:

  1. Open Finder
  2. Use the menu “Go” -> “Go to folder…” (or press Shift + Command + G)
  3. Copy the following path: /Library/Extensions
  4. Click “Go”
  5. Delete “AirBeamTV.kext”. You will need to enter the administrator password because this is a system location
  6. Reboot your computer. After the reboot the driver will disappear in the system sound preferences
