Here is one example, ( [youtu.be] ) BUT Apple has complete control of the protocol so they can break these apps and it looks like this one was broken already. Try a Chromecast stick. I don’t know how LG implements it, but I think it’s through some “cast” service since it doesn’t show up as an AirPlay device, but I am able to stream videos through my iPhone 7 youtube App and my son can stream through his Samsung S7. The “google cast” icon appears on the screen of videos that I’m able to stream/cast. [en.m.wikipedia.org]

Edit: Confused Google Cast with DNLA

Apple should really sell a HDMI airplay stick. Those of us that travel would buy one to stream media to hotel tv's and projectors for meetings. Would eliminate the need to care additional dongles and hdmi cables.
