@cynthia you are right that this is not ideal but one goal of this API was to offer a way for the web page to trigger the current "fling" feature that browsers have implemented by default (Chrome and Firefox offer Cast on Android, Safari offers Air Play). A user trying to "fling" a video shouldn't have to care whether it is using the API or the built-in feature. The concerns of not being able to use an AirPlay device from Android is larger than this API and anyone with such a configuration will be aware of the issue. Therefore, in our opinion, it is very unlikely that a user will have an unexpected/bad experience with this API.
