    Is there an app that supports native airplay of photos, besides the standard Apple Photos app?

    Most apps support only mirrored airplay. The disadvantage is that photos are displayed in a smaller size. I had an app that supported native airplay, but it seems that Apple changed something in airplay in iOS 11.

    Apple Photos is not an option for me because I want to stream photos from my NAS.

    Have you considered Plex?

    You could add your photos to it and stream them natively on your Apple TV, or Television/Xbox/PlayStation without worrying about AirPlay.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    Alas my Apple TV is too old for Plex. My Samsung TV is 9 years old, I'll check out if Plex is possible.

    The thing is, before iOS 11 I had native airplay in one or two apps. Something has changed, and I am hoping to find an app that still does native airplay.

    Obviously I don’t know which ATV you have, but there is, or at least was - don’t know if it still works - a way to get Plex even on ATV 2 or ATV 3.

    If you’re interested in giving it a go have a look here or do a search for another tutorial.

    I used to use it on my ATV 3 before I upgraded, worked perfectly at the time.
