We currently don’t have built-in support for streaming devices (unless you have Apple TV and an AirPlay-supported device,) but there are a few solutions if you’d like to use them to watch our videos on your TV.
If your TV and computer support one, you can use an HDMI cable to connect your computer to your television. Alternatively, streaming devices like Chromecast and Roku (among others) often feature the ability to mirror your browser window directly to your TV and can serve as an option to watch lesson videos.
How to watch on Apple TV through AirPlay
On an iPhone or iPad:
- When viewing a lesson video, you should see the AirPlay button in the bottom right-hand corner of the video. If you’re unsure, the AirPlay icon looks like the outline of a rectangle with a solid triangle poking through the bottom and can be found sandwiched in between the gear & fullscreen icons.
- Once you click the icon, you should see a menu with options to play the content on your device or an Apple TV. Select Apple TV, and you’ll be able to view the video on your television.
On a Mac computer:
- Ensure that your computer is compatible with Airplay – most modern Mac computers support AirPlay.
- Find the AirPlay icon in the top right corner of your Mac’s menu bar (the icon looks like the outline of a rectangle with a solid triangle poking through the bottom.)
- If you don’t see it, click the “Spotlight Search” magnifying glass icon in the top right corner and search “AirPlay”. It should take you to “Displays” in system preferences.
- If you don’t see the “Spotlight Search” tool, open your system preferences and select “Displays.”
- In the displays tab of your preferences, you should see a dropdown menu that says “AirPlay Display” in the bottom left corner of the window that will allow you to use AirPlay.
- Once you activate AirPlay, you can either cast lesson videos directly to your TV or use your TV as a mirrored display that will show all lesson content.
On a PC (windows):
- AirPlay is an OS- & iOS- based Apple tool, so there’s no native support for it if you’re using a PC.
- However, there are downloadable plugins & software to make a PC compatible with AirPlay. At this time we can’t endorse any, so be sure to do your research before installing any software or plugins on to your computer.
Chromecast, Roku, and other streaming options:
The same principle for using a PC to stream to Apple TV applies for other streaming devices (Roku, Chromecast, etc.) In most cases, people have developed plugins, software, or apps that allow you to mirror your screen or stream videos from your web-enabled browser directly to your TV.
