Compatible streaming boxes include AppleTV Gen4 and above, and select Roku HD streaming devices running the most up-to-date software.

Can I use the web browser built into my TV?

Maybe! Unfortunately many built-in Smart TVs web browsers don’t support protected content playback. If you get a black screen or error message, it’s likely that your TV is not compatible. You’ll need to try another method to get the video onto your TV.

Why does video playback stall or not play smoothly?

CineSend uses adaptive bitrate streaming which means the streaming quality will automatically adjust based on your internet speed. If your internet connection is poor or inconsistent you may experience problems during playback. If you’re on wifi, try moving closer to your router.

I see a black screen when I’m trying to AirPlay on my TV. What’s happening?

You likely have “Screen Mirroring” turned on in your device settings. Please turn off the screen mirroring setting and start AirPlay by selecting the AirPlay button in the bottom right-hand side of the player.

I see a black screen but can hear audio. What’s happening?

If you have an external display or TV connected with an HDMI cable, try disconnecting it. If a video plays after it is disconnected, then unfortunately the display or cable doesn’t support encrypted video. You’ll need to try another way to watch.

Why do I see a black screen after the pre-roll if I am casting to Chromecast?

Some Chromecast versions cannot support transitions from one video to another. If this happens, turn off casting and re-start it once the film starts playing.
