[Solved] iPad Doesn't have AirPlay Icon in Browser
Does anyone know why when you a video opens on your ipad, you don't have the option to select airplay with it? Whereas if you do the same thing on your phone, you have the airplay icon in the lower right? See the two attached photos. I'm referring to non YouTube videos because those will open up in the YouTube app.
This feature in the browser on the iPad happens in Safari and Chrome. You can go the extra step and select mirroring from the Control Panel, but it seems like this is extra work, especially when it acts "normally" on the phone. In addition, the mirroring sometimes works, and in fact, it even looks like normal airplay on the iPad at times.
Any idea why this isn't on the iPad?
I think iPhone more often forces such apps to use the iOS video player whereas iPad is more flexible. To troubleshoot this with you, it would be helpful if you could link to the video you're playing. Some players don't natively support AirPlay. If you watch this video in Facebook on iPad, though, AirPlay is an option.
