Has anyone had issues streaming video from an iPhone through a projector?

Screen mirroring with my LED projector works fine with internal videos and YouTube, but when using any other streaming video app (Netflix, HBO Go, CW, etc.) the iPhone (8+) screen goes dark & I only get audio. All apps as well as the phone's iOS are the latest versions. I'm using the lightning/USB cable to connect to the projector; is that the problem (e.g. should I be using a lightning/VGA or /HDMI)?

  • This is the setup up I use and when it fails to start the mirror I've found that it works to turn the projector on and then start the stream on you phone and once both are on to plug adapter in as last step. Seems to work everytime. Hope this is helpful

  • You need to get the VGA/HDMI adapter to Lightning.

  • I used it with an 12.9” iPad Pro 2 and an HDMI lcd pocket projector.
    No issues, worked fine. Will try an older iPhone 5S and get back to you.
