indeed, but the functionality could be handled/mediated by the application

Here what we want to achieve is a 2 (or n) screens experience, where maybe  
I have a tablet, find a video, push it to the main TV screen but keep  
using the application to see additional content and maybe control the  
video being showed on the TV screen. Since this involve communication  
between 2 devices, I'm not sure this can be achieved only with a link  
(unless this is a browser feature of course, but we are arguing for a  
solution that can be handled by apps rather than browsers/extensions).
