Tip: How to enable AirPlay video in HTML5 video player

It appears as though Apple is requiring content providers to expressly allow AirPlay video in order for video to be playable from Safari onto an Apple TV.

To enable AirPlay video in an HTML 5 video player, simply add the following attribute to the video tag:

x-webkit-airplay="allow"

So, your HTML5 video tag might look like (remove spaces from tag open/close):

<video src="/path/to/video.mp4" x-webkit-airplay="allow" preload controls></video>

Your browser does not support SVG
