  • Hi there,

    Thanks for writing in to us.

    Could you let us know how you are trying to stream to your Samsung TV? Is it via Chromecast, Airplay or other apps?

    If you are using the Viki app, please try the following first:

    1. Log out from your account
    2. Uninstall and reinstall the Viki app from your device.
    3. Turn your device off and on again.
    4. Log back in to your Viki account by following the steps here.

    Are you still having the same issues? If so, can you please provide the following information?

    1. What is the version of the Viki app are you using? You can find this information in the app settings.
    2. Which specific movies or episodes are causing this issue? Please give as many details as possible

  • Hi mushroom_nguyen_525,

    We're sorry to hear you're experiencing this issue too.

    Please try the following troubleshooting steps:

    1. On your Apple TV, make sure that AirPlay is turned-on in Settings > AirPlay.
    2. On your iOS device, go to Settings > Wi-Fi and check that you're on the same Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV. 
    3. On your Apple TV:
      • Apple TV (4th generation onwards)
        • Go to Settings > Network and check that you're on the same Wi-Fi network as your iOS device.
      • Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation)
        • Go to Settings > General > Network. 

    Please also refer to this article to check that you are correctly connected to Airplay.

    Hope this works out!

    If you're still facing issues, please take a screenshot of your missing Airplay connection.

  • I hace a different Samsung issue. I am trying to mirror from iPad Viki app directly to Samsung 8 Series. I get sound, a frozen spinner, some commands, but no video. I am slap trying to direct connect the iPad to Samsung with an Apple Lightning to HDMI adapter. Same result. I get the iPad on the TV, I even see the Viki app menus. But when I try to stream, no video.

  • Hi thedoubtfulguests_847

    If you are viewing Viki on your TV with your iOS device via screen mirroring or using an HDMI cable, some videos might run with a black screen and audio and subtitles in the background.

    This is due to a security feature implemented by Apple and is something that we're unable to control for now until Apple makes some changes.

    To circumvent this issue in the meanwhile, we recommend the following options:

    1. Use Chromecast. 
    2. Use Android TV/Fire TV/Apple TV devices to stream to the TV

    Hope this clarifies!
