I still encounter this regularly. If I have my iPhone connected to wifi, then run Kodi, my iPhone will detect it as an airplay target. If I run Kodi first, then connect to wifi on my iPhone, it does not detect it. In which case I need to go into Kodi's settings and disable/re-enable Airplay.

I think the flakiness comes from the iPhone sometimes disconnecting from wifi when in standby? I'll try to get a useful log, but the above should be reproducible

In this log:

1. Started Kodi, selected HTPC as airplay device on iPhone 5s (8.1.2)
2. Videos didn't play. Black loading screen on my iPhone. Eventually an error message depending on app, something along the lines of "cannot be played" etc
3. Disabled/re-enabled airplay in Kodi and re-connected to Kodi on iPhone
4. Played 3 short Youtube videos successfully
5. Fourth video didn't work, same problem as above. Tried multiple different videos, as well as disconnecting/re-connecting airplay on my iPhone, nothing worked
6. Simply went into Kodi's settings, disabled/re-enabled airplay, worked immediately. Did not even need to re-select airplay device on iPhone

Windows 8.1, Helix RC3, and for what it's worth, my Wifi signal is excellent and sending Youtube links through something like YATSE on Android works 100% of the time
