AirScreen: Apple Users
Thanks to AirScreen, the configuration is simplified for Apple users compared to Android users because all Apple devices are natively equipped with the Screen Mirroring (AirPlay) function, be it iPhone, iPad, iMac or Mac Book.
1. Please download the latest version of the AirScreen app here:
2. Copy the .apk file to a USB flash drive. Then, connect the USB drive to your Zappiti media player.
3. Switch on your Zappiti media player. Then, launch Zappiti Explorer and click on the APK file to install it. Once installed, the app will be placed in My App and will it be launched.
4. On your Apple device, click the Screen Mirroring option. On the iPhone and iPad, this option is located in the task bar in direct access (flick up from the bottom of the screen). Your Zappiti will appears as AS-Zappiti4KHDR. Click on it. The screen will be mirrored on your TV via the Zappiti.
Note: for Music, only the Cover Art is displayed on the TV.
Note: Both your Zappiti media player and Apple device must be on the same local network. If you are using an iPad or iPhone, you need to connect to Wi-Fi on the same local network as the Zappiti player is connected to.
Miracast: Android users
On your Zappiti, go to MyApp / Miracast. On your android device (smartphone or tablet),
First, open your device’s settings screen — that’s the Settings app in your app drawer. Under the Device section, tap Display. Scroll down on the Display screen and tap Cast Screen. (You can also cast to Chromecast devices from here, although those don’t use the Miracast protocol.)
Tap the Menu button at the top of your screen and select Enable wireless display. Your phone will scan for nearby Miracast devices and display them in a list under Cast Screen. If your MIracast receiver is powered on and nearby, it should appear in the list.
Tap the device to connect and begin casting your screen. A notification will appear, providing a visible indication that you’re casting your screen. Pull down the notification shade at the top of your screen and tap the Disconnect button to stop casting your screen.
You can also cast from the Quick Settings screen if you’ve enabled the wireless display feature under Cast Screen. Pull down with two fingers from the top of your screen to open Quick Settings, tap the Cast Screen button, and you’ll see a list of nearby devices you can cast to. Tap one to start casting.
If your computer, smartphone, or tablet supports Miracast and you have a Miracast receiver nearby, it should be this easy. Miracast uses Wi-Fi Direct, so the devices don’t even have to be on the same network to communicate with each other. Issues with your home network or router shouldn’t even be a factor. This should simplify things, but Miracast-enabled devices often refuse to work together or have issues with playback glitches and dropped streams even after they connect because it depends of the aps or players used.
