Subject: How to cast YouTube to the AT-UHD-SW-510W from iOS devices

Explanation: Casting to the AT-UHD-SW-510W directly from YouTube app uses URL casting which will be supported in a future release. Casting to the AT-UHD-SW-510W from iOS devices is successfully accomplished using Apple AirPlay, and is only supported on iOS 5 or higher. 

  1. Select the BYOD input on the AT-UHD-SW-510W.
  2. On the iOS device, go to Settings > Wi-Fi.



  3. Under Wi-Fi, select the SSID of the AT-UHD-SW-510W in the list of available devices. The SSID is displayed on the splash screen.



    1. See Boot Sequence on page 18 of the AT-UHD-SW-510W User's Manual for more information on locating the SSID of the AT-UHD-SW-510W.

  4. Enter the password for the device. The default password is 88888888.



  5. Once connected, swipe-up on the bottom of the iOS device to display the Control Center.

  6. Tap the AirPlay Mirroring option to display a list of available AirPlay devices.

    1. Note that if the iOS device is running iOS 11.0.3 or later, the AirPlay option has been changed to Screen Mirroring:



  7. Tap the SSID from the list of devices.

  8. Close the Control Center by either swiping down or pressing the Home button.

  9. The iOS device will now appear on the connected display.

Now you can play free YouTube videos from your iOS browsers such as Safari, Chrome, or FireFox, however pressing the full-screen button on the video will switch from Screen Mirror casting to URL casting which will be supported in a future release.
