Play Photos and Videos

You can select and play photos or videos in iPlayTo just like using the “Photos” app – grouped by Years, Moments, Duration, or by different Albums.

 

Playing Photos

Tap a photo in collection view to play it on TV, and swipe to switch between items in current collection.


“Slideshow” will display your photos on TV one by one automatically.

Choose “Photo Size” to change the photo size and make it fit your TV screen, and this will also “rotate” portrait photos if your TV doesn’t support them and show them rotated.

 

Playing Videos

Tap a video in collection view to play it on TV, and swipe to switch between items in current collection.


“Slideshow” will play your videos on TV one by one automatically.

Choose “Video Quality” to play the video in different sizes, to get a better quality but use less network bandwidth.

Enable “Rotate Video” to rotate the portrait videos if your TV doesn’t support them and play them rotated. Please DO NOT enable this if your TV supports portrait videos.

 

Media Control – the Control Panel

Tap the button at the lower right corner of the screen to show/hide the “Control Panel“, which can be used to PLAY, PAUSE or STOP a media, change the player’s volume or progress, also you can see the player’s current status.

 

The same “Control Panel” are used everywhere in iPlayTo to control the media playing.

 

Tips:

You can STOP the playing in control panel and re-play it if the photo or video can’t be played on your TV successfully.

 

NOTE:

Some TVs’ DLNA implementations are not good enough, which causes iPlayTo doesn’t work in the way it should be, and this is NOT iPlayTo’s bug but your TV’s.
