Video Support for AirPlay Is Limited in iOS 4
AirPlay is the killer feature for Apple TV. But perhaps we better keep that in the future tense for now: it going to be the killer cover samsung s8 con disegni feature for Apple TV. on the iPad and iPod Touch) and YouTube. In other apps, AirPlay is audio only.
The most cover frozen iphone obvious shortcoming: You can use AirPlay to play videos shot on your iPhone. That an obvious feature, right Shoot a video on your iPhone, then play it back for family and migliore cover iphone 7 cover samsung s8 friends on your big TV via AirPlay. No syncing, no docking, no moving files around. Just hit play. But it doesn work in iOS 4.2.1 even though you can use cover samsung s6 edge fronte retro AirPlay to cover samsung note8 originale show still photos from the Photos app. I can cover porta tessere iphone 7 get AirPlay samsung galaxy s20 ultra hoesjes video to work from Apple iMovie app for the iPhone, either. (Audio over AirPlay works just fine.)
I asked about this on Twitter tonight, and one reasonable theory was cover iphone 5 a prueba de agua that it was a problem with encoding bandwidth. HD movies rented or bought from iTunes tend to be encoded with bitrates of about 5 Mbit/s. Video clips shot foto cover samsung a3 2017 on the iPhone cover samsung j3 2017 unicorno 4 have bitrates of about 10 11 Mbit/s the iPhone doesn have the processing power to compress movies tighter than that. cover samsung j330 2017 But that means video shot on your iPhone is than video downloaded from iTunes, or video converted on custodia cover samsung galaxy s8 your computer to a format optimized for devices like the iPhone and Apple TV. So, the theory goes, maybe AirPlay doesn support cover samsung galaxy a5 2016 game of thrones video clips shot on your iPhone because they not compressed well enough to stream at a reasonable rate.
But that doesn seem to be the case. If you take a video shot on your iPhone, import it to your Mac, then put that clip in iTunes and sync it back to iPhone, you can then play that same video file over AirPlay cover samsung grand prime silicone animali using the (on iPhone) or (on iPad/iPod Touch) app. I do not believe that iTunes re compresses video when syncing it to your device. The same video streams iphone 5c cover strane over AirPlay from one app (iPad/Video), but not another (Photos).
AirPlay video streaming also doesn work from Mobile Safari. Tap the AirPlay button while playing a video in Safari and the options are all audio only.
So my best guess is that Apple really wanted to ship iOS 4.2 in November especially for the sake cover samsung s10 glitter of the iPad and some features didn make the cut. Widespread AirPlay video support, I suspect is one of those things and that we le custodia cover samsung s9 plus mie cover coque iphone per iphone 2g see a lot custodia cover huawei p9 more places where AirPlay works for video in future iOS updates…
