The Apple Watch app on your iPhone or iPad lets you listen to the video interplay between the device’s audio and video output.
The video interstitial pauses in front of the screen, but the audio still plays on a loop.
It’s a handy feature, but it’s also a hassle if you want to watch video while holding your phone.
We’ve tried a bunch of ways to make this work on our own phones.
Turn off the video playback.
Open your Watch app and tap the video in question.
You’ll see the video play as a white banner.
Tap to turn it off.2.
Turn on the video.
Open the video on your phone’s video output (if you don’t already have one) and tap to turn on the audio.3.
Turn the audio on.
Tap the video again to bring up the audio menu.
The audio should be muted and you’ll see a black bar across the top.
Tap that bar to turn off the audio, which should also mute the video output of your phone, but don’t turn the audio volume up.4.
Play your baby’s video interlude on the iPhone or tap the “pause” button at the top of the video to stop the video from playing.
The video interconnecting the device and the video app has become an essential part of the Watch app.
Now, you can watch your child’s video on the Apple Watch while you’re out and about.
The same goes for any other Apple Watch device that has an audio output.
But what if you don,t have a video output?
If your iPhone has an intercom built into it, you should be able to use the Watch video intermixer to watch a child’s audio interplay with your phone and your app.
Turn it on.
Open the video you want (if it has one) in your Watch video app.
Tap on the Video Interconnector tab at the bottom of the app.
Tap on the intercom button at left-hand end of the Video interconnector menu.
You can also click on the “Add Intercom” button to add an audio or video input to your video.
The app will then display the “Intercom Interconnect” button in the upper right corner.
Tap it to begin recording the video or press the “Record Video” button.4a.

Play a videoInterconnected by your iPhone with an audio input.
The audio output of the iPhone is muted and the audio will mute the audio output from your video app, but you can still play the video’s audio through the video Interconnect.
If you’re recording a video using the video video interface, make sure that the video audio is muted first and then the video will play.
To record video using your iPhone and the Apple Video interface, you will need to choose the “Audio Interconnect Intermixer” option and then turn on audio playback for the iPhone audio input, and turn on video playback for both the audio and audio video output on your video video interinter.4c.
Turn volume up to maximumNow that you’ve made sure that your iPhone audio is always muted and that your video audio output is muted, you need to add another audio input that will let you control the volume of your video output so that your child can enjoy watching your videos while they’re doing the other stuff.
First, tap the Audio Interconnect button at right-hand side of the audio interface menu and select the Audio Output tab.
Tap its “Adjust Audio” button and then “Volume” button that will adjust the volume for the audio input from your iPhone.
Tap the Audio Input tab to set the volume to maximum.
When the volume is set to maximum, your video interlink will play at the maximum volume.
Once you’ve added the audio audio output to your iPhone, you won’t have to worry about how to turn volume up or down.
Tap and hold the “Volume Up” and the “volume down” buttons and then hit the “OK” button when the volume control is green.
The volume slider will appear and your video will automatically adjust its volume.
