Before you know “how to play Netflix on the projector from iPhone, iPad” I would like to tell you why it does not work.

Why won’t Netflix play on my projector from iPhone, iPad?

There are few things you should notice when streaming Netflix from iPhone to the projector.

Always use the HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) connection to stream Netflix.

Because the Netflix content is copyrighted, that’s why an HDCP connection is required when you streaming.

If you stream the movie from Netflix and you can see the movie but don’t hear the audio. Be confirmed you are using the apple certified HDMI to lighting cable.

If Netflix is unable to play movies then you should update the Netflix app from, app store. Or delete the app and re-install it. And last hope contact the Netflix support.

Tip: If you using VGA lighting cable use external speakers and headphones to listen to the voice.

How to Play netflix on projector from iPhone, iPad, In simple steps?

This is the main part of our article. Where I am going to tell how you can stream Netflix with the three require equipment in few steps let’s start.

First, we use an HDMI cable.

HDMI Cable

Here I am using the Power Bear HDMI cable. This is a high-speed 6 feet 4k HDMI cable.

Second, we use the HDMI to lighting cable.

Here we are using the Apple official HDMI to lightning cable to connect. It supports 1080p resolution and in this adapter, you will get the 2 ports.

You have to take the HDMI cable that you have already put in the projector HDMI port. You have to connect that HDMI cable to another side in the lighting adapter HDMI port.

Your second step is done.

Third/Last we use lighting port

In our last step, we connect the lighting adapter cable with our iPhone/iPad charging port. Done if you projector and device are on then after a few seconds of connecting you will see the success.

And thus our last/third step is done.

iPhone Port

Now you can see the projection of your iPhone/iPad on the projection screen. You will see the projection size of your iPhone/iPad on the projection screen.

Because there is a difference between the native resolution of the projector and iPhone/iPad.

When playing video content then the projection will be normal.

Warm Tips

1. If your projection has not happened after using these three tips. Then restart both projector and iPhone/iPad one by one.

2. Make sure your connection is tight between Projector, HDMI cable, Lighting cable, and iPhone/iPad.

3. Normal projector easily detects the connection when put the cable in the port. But your projector doesn’t. You can tap the Search source, Search input and Search Burn button.

You can find these buttons somewhere on the projector. If you didn’t find this button you should check your projector manual to search this button.

Because this button named different in the different projector. But the purpose is the same to find the search connection.

Is necessary to use an official apple adapter?

Yes, it’s necessary. Because apple updates its OS frequently. For security purposes. If you use an unofficial HDMI adapter. Its system can stop the operation. It’s also necessary to protect your device from unauthorized access.

So, you should not use the unofficial HDMI adapter.
