So I'm recently motivated to try and find out how AirPlay works on ios9.3...

Interestingly I can watch foreign content on my iPhone/iPads via VPN flawlessly, but can only cast it to the ATV3 via AirPlay if the content is on the local NF catalogue too (AirPlay works flawlessly and content plays) but if the content is on US catelogue only I get errors...says "failed to connect, check network' on the iPad/iPhone and "an error occurred loading this content" on the ATV3.

It seems the Apple TV (which can't VPN directly itself) somehow tries to load the content personally and gives away that it's in NZ, even though the phone works flawlessly via VPN as soon as I turn off AirPlay?

For ref, it's a 2014 Samsung 5500 so the Samsung 'smartcast' feature only allows internet streamed videos and locally stored photo's and movies to be cast directly...



(Reposted on an open forum for wider exposure to find out how Aitplay resolved the content.)

This is expected behaviour.

As seen by numerous queries on Google, but "how does AirPlay work" actually... Is far harder to find out?

As you described, the ATV sets up a connection directly with the source, hence why in your case things don't work.
