  • 1.  Swank & AirPlay - Workaround or Other Options?

    Hello All, 

    Recently, our teachers using Swank are not able to see the videos when they AirPlay their Macbook to the Apple TV. They can hear the audio, but the video doesn't show. When we talked to Swank, we hit a wall because they are aware of the issue but they don't support AirPlay. I am curious if anyone has a workaround OR other ideas for showing videos in class. 

    We also have our own Plex, so that is an option but the library of material is not as vast. It is also not something that can be assigned or watched on a student's device.  The large library and ability to assign it outside of class are the two main reasons our teachers like Swank. 

    Any advice you have is greatly appreciated. 

    Thank you!

    I have seen this issue mostly when using Safari. What we found is that instead of using the AirPlay (Screen Mirroring) option from the menu bar, on the computer used to view the Swank video, in the video itself is an AirPlay icon. If you use that, it has not had an issue for us.

    We have been using Swank with AirPlay for a couple of years. It works great. I am using AirPlay with Swank right now.
