Offline content needs to be screen mirrored to be cast to Airplay device

Hello! First, thanks for your app!
I use it to stream from my Jellyfin instance and locally download some content when going on a trip.

I wanted to Airplay one of those local videos but only the sound comes out from the Apple TV. So I tried screen mirroring and it works well (seems like the video is natively played and not the iPad screen, and the iPad shows the classic Airplay screen).
But there’s a limitation. I can’t lock the screen or just use my device for anything else.

Is that normal? Am I doing it right? Is that an iOS limitation, or is it possible to be a future feature?

Anyway, thanks and have a nice day!

If you are only getting sound then most likely it is not a supported video format for airplay. Unfortunately airplay formats are quite limited.

Hello, thanks for your answer! Yeah, that was HEVC 10bits iirc. So yes, that may very well be an incompatible format. Thank you!
