EzCast dongle Netflix and YouTube not working with airplay

Postby Alex010101 » Thu Oct 29, 2015 2:56 am

Dear EzCast team
I can not AirPlay anything from my iOS devices to the dongle when using the Netflix or YouTube app. The playback seem to start but the error "Bad request URI" is displayed.

I have already updated the device to the latest firmware since mirroring works (iOS9).

How come? I hope you will fix the problem soon :)

Anyone else having this problem?

Dear Alex:

Sorry for the inconvenience.
Due to Netflix’s content protection design and they didn’t license us SDK, we still can’t cast to Netflix app directly at this moment.
Youtube App is the same case and we are still working on it.
We are still contacting with Netflix/google to see how to pass their content protection limitation, and please also send your suggestion to Netflix to help us speed up the cooperation for us.

For Youtube, you can use EZCast/Web or EZCast/EZChannel to access youtube video and EZCast can extract the highest resolution video for better user experience. Please try this way.
For Android users, EZMirror (miracast) can mirror the video for youtube app and netflix app.
Please refer to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LfzgdSBsKs.

Thanks for your understanding.

Dear Sgto:

Due to the DRM of Netflix, we are still working on business negotiation with Netflix.
It takes time and sorry for the inconvenience.
Please also send your suggestion to Netflix to help us speed up the cooperation.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Sorry for the inconvenience, we don't get the lisence from Netflix yet, please kindly send your request to Netflix and it may speed up our cooperation. We are still working hard to get the lisence.
Thanks for your understanding and help.

It's unbelievable !
Apple forces Netflix to lock their contents to be available on appletv only..
I hope you'll find a work around !

It could be cool if we could install apps (Netflix or whatever) directly on the dongle..

Sorry, regarding on the special DRM protected by Netflix and they didn't license us the DRM. It's impossible to mirror or stream the contents directly on the app. We suggest downloading the contents for mirroring.
However, if your Android mobile phone supports HDCP with Miracast, you can try another alternative way:
-Connect your phone to home router
-Turn on EZMirror (Miracast) and start the mirroring to EZCast
-Turn on Netflix app and you shall see what you want
Please refer to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LfzgdSBsKs for demo video.
Please also send your request to Netflix to speed up our cooperation.
Thanks.
