Player settings

airplay: Boolean

Set whether or not in-player AirPlay support should be activated on eligible devices. Default: true. Note that when set to true this setting will enable periodic checks for detecting AirPlay receivers and this may cause additional battery usage on mobile or portable devices. Note that AirPlay casting is not available from macOS Safari when streaming DASH.
