    Now and again, someone in my family finds a funny video on Facebook. They want to share it, and I normally recommend that they use AirPlay on the ATV3.

    It almost never works properly. I'll get a generic error ("An error occurred while loading the content") or just a black screen with the outline of the Facebook video player, but no video.

    It doesn't matter if I mirror or not. The only real solution is to look for the video on YouTube, and try again, where it will work flawlessly, and without mirroring.

    Device one is an iPhone 6 Plus, on 9.2
    Device two is an iPhone 6, on 8.4.2

    Mines doing the same thing. AirPlay from YouTube is fine but facebook and flixster throw up an error. I tried everything.
