Thread: Airplay to ATV/Watch Video on Different App on iPhone

  1. #1
    Default Airplay to ATV/Watch Video on Different App on iPhone
    Hello all, I usually can find answers like this by searching around...but I'm at a loss on this one.

    Here is my example:

    I'm streaming a baseball game from MLB At-Bat to one of my ATV's.

    It lets me leave the app while still streaming the game up onto the TV, which is great.

    But then I go to Facebook and click on a video that someone posted, the game stops streaming to the TV and it tries to play that video on the TV (and it usually errors out.)

    My desired outcome is the game continues to play on the TV, while i watch the video on my phone.

    I've heard that Android phones can do this seamlessly with Chromecast, so I'm wonder if there is a jailbreak tweak to make this happen.

    Not that I know of. Whatever you going to play on your iPhone's screen is what is 'supposed' to be airplayed.

    I'm not even sure how Android is doing that since it'd have to ask the user what video they want to continue watching in the TV.

    This 'might' be a feature for backgrounded apps like YouTube but I don't know if it's across the board.
