This video stream is not playable under the current device.....are you ever going to address this???

I've searched this problem so many times and cannot find a solution. 

 

There are no "external devices".  StreamTV app works fine on android phone, but not Samsung android tablet.

Let me also be perfectly clear.  The StreamTV app WORKS on my phone AND my Ipad.  This error message only comes upon Samsung Tab S2.

Please ensure that screen mirroring is turned off on you Tab S2. The feature may be listed under "AllPlay"

Due to rights restrictions from programmers, we need to prevent playback when connections are hardwired or via mirroring (e.g. GoogleCast, AllPlay, etc.). There's a "flag" that gets triggered on your device OS and read by the app when an external display is connected. The app simply looks for this flag.
