AirPlay Isn't Working

  • Updated

Overview

If you are seeing issues when using AirPlay, try one of the tips below to get back on track.

Enable Mirroring

AirPlay is an Apple-designed feature, and the formats it will support are a bit limited.

If audio is working but video is not, the currently playing video may not be compatible with AirPlay. In these cases, you can enable AirPlay mirroring on your device. Doing this will allow all videos to be supported, even those which are not supported by Apple.

Adjust Audio Options

If Infuse is pausing playback immediately after enabling AirPlay, it may be related to Infuse trying to send Dolby Digital audio when the device the Apple TV is connected to doesn't support it. This can happen when the Apple TV is not connected to a Dolby compatible device, or if Dolby audio is disabled in the Apple TV settings.

Option 1 - Enable Dolby Digital on the Apple TV

On the Apple TV, navigate to Settings > Video and Audio > Audio Format and set Change Format to Dolby Digital 5.1.

Option 2 - Disable 5.1 Audio over AirPlay in Infuse

The 5.1 Audio over AirPlay setting can be found in Infuse > Settings > Playback. Toggle this setting to off.
