I have a Samsung Galaxy 6 and Google Play Movies app running. I can screen mirror to the TV but as soon as I try to use my phone for other things like check my email the video stops playing.

Is there a way I can start the video (screen cast/screen mirror) and then use my phone for other things at the same time?

Here is what my screen looks like:

I select it and then I see this screen:

FYI I couldn't create the tag "Screen Mirroring". Here is a description if someone wants to create it, http://www.samsung.com/ie/support/skp/faq/1057791.

  • Are you using a Chromecast to do the mirroring, or something else like software built in to the TV? – eldarerathis Dec 11 '15 at 1:32
  • It's a Samsung Smart TV. When you select inputs it says Screen Mirroring. I added more information. – 1.21 gigawatts Dec 11 '15 at 2:11
