One of the new features in 4.9.5 is ability to stream audio to airplay speakers according to the changlog but did you know that the built in video player can actually stream video to your Apple TV?

I was playing some video last night and I noticed that I got a new green little icon in the bottom right corner of the player.  So I pushed the little icon and I got a list with Xiaomi and my AppleTV name.  I clicked on my AppleTV and to my BIG surprise, my video started to play on my AppleTV - Excellent quality too.  The connection was so fast, it was better than my iPad :-)  - I played a 2 hour movie without any problems.

So, it turns out that the new feature does not just include playing audio to airplay speakers, it actually stream video to your appletv.  The support is built in the Music and the Video players only - it is not a system wide support - You have to use the Miui Video player in your browser (UC Browser will allow you to choose) and you can now play any online video directly to your Apple TV.  ENJOY!!!!

This is amazing.  Thank you Dev Team.  This is a great feature.  Keep it up.

Hi Team, I accidentally got that option in one of the video and I was able to stream that video from Redmi 1S to my Apple TV. But after that airplay option is not showing up in any of the videos, could you please let me know the procedure to get that again?

The option is still there for me up to the latest weekly ROM 4.9.26 on Note 3 and Nexus 5.  Have you updated your ROM since? I have noticed that there is a new service that might be the new service app for airplay called uniplayer service.  Make sure you still have it.  The service only works with the built-in video player, nothing else. Make sure that you are on the same subnet as your AppleTV, Airplay does not route among different subnets.  Reboot your AppleTV might resolve the issue.  Mine still works using the built-in player.
