Chromecast & Apple devices

I have one customer where Windows devices are able to stream video to Chromecast but Apple devices are able to stream video without audio, and the display is more jerky than streaming from Windows devices. Also 4k streaming is disable according the status shown on Apple devices (both Macbook & iPhone).

Customer is using Instant 6.5.4.2 with Central and I have tweaked all required parameter as per Instant VRD. Any idea what else can we do here or if it is some client setting on Apple that we need to tweak?

So the Macbook is having audio problems while trying to do Chromecast through the browser?  I'm just trying to narrow down the test case exactly..

Both iPhone & Macbook have audio issue if streaming from browser/app that doesn't have a native app in Chromecast itself.   As Chromecast has been installed with youtube app, youtube works fine from both iPhone & Macbook.

It almost sounds like an application issue.  Airgroup itself helps two endpoint devices find each other.  After that, it should be a direct connection between the client device and the Chromecast device.
