How To Watch On Your TV

AirPlay on iPhone

To AirPlay a video to an Apple TV or other AirPlay-capable device, start playing a video via the link sent via BWW Events on iOS, tap the AirPlay icon, and select the device where you want to play your video.

Viewers can also AirPlay videos from the Safari browser on macOS, iOS, and iPadOS. To do so, tap the AirPlay icon in the BroadwayWorld Player and select your preferred device.

More information about Apple AirPlay can be found here.

 

AirPlay on iPad

Unfortunately, there is not currently support for AirPlay via Safari (the default browser) on iPad for BroadwayWorld Events.

To use the built in Airplay options on iPad, you will need to download Google Chrome for iPad, free.

Then, follow the same instructions as for iOS above.

 

 

Chromecast

To cast a video to a Google Chromecast device, an Android TV device, or a device with Chromecast built-in, start playing a video within the iOS or Android mobile app, tap the Chromecast icon, and select your preferred device.

We currently do not support casting videos from the Chrome web browser.

FireTV / Fire Stick / Fire Cube / Android TV

These devices can receive video via AirPlay using the Air Screen App.

First, visit the Air Screen website and follow instructions to install the application on your smart device.

Click here for Amazon TV. Click here for Google Play.

Follow the on screen instructions and scan the QR code with your iOS device to select AirPlay for In-App Content.

Once your screen shows is it waiting for an AirPlay connection, navigate to the BroadwayWorld Events player and follow the iPad or iOS instructions to cast your screen above.

AirPlay from my macOS Desktop

If you have a macOS computer (MacBook Pro, iMac, etc.) you can use AirPlay to mirror your desktop to an Apple TV device that is connected to the same Wi-Fi network. There is currently no option to AirPlay directly from the player.

Note: If you are able to AirPlay to a non-Apple TV device, this is AirPlay 2 which we do not support at this time.

 

  1. Connect your Mac to the same Wi-Fi network as your AppleTV device.
  2. On your Mac, click the AirPlay icon in the top menu bar. It looks like:
  3. If you don’t see this icon, go to the Apple menu in the upper left corner, then navigate to System Preferences > Displays > select Show mirroring options in the menu bar when available.
  4. Choose your AppleTV device. Be mindful of choosing the correct device if multiple appear in the list. If an AirPlay passcode displays on your TV screen, enter the code on your Mac.
  5. Your TV will begin to mirror your monitor’s display. From here, you can navigate to the video in your web browser on your Mac and begin playing the video.

To control the player (pause, fast-forward, rewind, etc.) you will need to use the player controls on the video in your desktop browser. The AppleTV remote cannot control mirrored screens.

If mirroring does not work, consider using an iOS device instead, which includes the option to AirPlay directly from the player.
