AirPlay only works for ads, not shows (Updated)
Update: The 2.5.1 update resolves the issue listed below, but AirPlay requires mirroring to be turned on, which causes it to suffer from framerate issues. The playback on the device looks fine, but the video being streamed to the TV looks jumpy and laggy. Other apps don’t suffer from this issue, so I’m convinced it’s something NBC could remedy if they tried.
The version 2.5 change notes claim AirPlay mirroring works now, but so far it only works on pre-roll ads for me. When the show starts the video goes right back to my phone.
Never mind the fact that actually requires "mirroring" to be turned off in the AirPlay settings. Turning it on will just give the same "AirPlay is not currently supported" message as before. Turning off mirroring and just selecting an Apple TV as the output device is the only way to get it to send anything at all—and as noted above, it only streams ads, not shows.
Looks great..Performance... TBD
The new update is well organized, includes a lot more features, INCLUDING AIRPLAY(BIG YAY FOR ME!) I have yet to test it's performance regarding crashing, bugs, etc.
For now, I'll give it 4 because they obviously tried here. If Performance is improved and works well, I'll change to 5 stars. If performance blows and is unreliable as it has been in the past, it will go down to 2 stars. Yes 2, cuz you now had a chance to fix it and if u failed again, that's miserably on you... Lol
But for now, it looks promising with the new updates.
Finally - AirPlay support!!!
Any app that is designed for playback of streaming video NEEDS to support AirPlay mirroring in order to be taken seriously, and sadly far too few have figured this out (I believe HBO GO was the first network to get it right). Now that the NBC app has full episodes AND AirPlay mirroring I actually use it! Thank you NBC! Now if only the other networks would get a clue!
