    Cannot Cast to TV, Questionable casting VIA different software/hardwar


    Currently trying to cast my desktop of anything to my Samsung TV.

    Details of hardware/software that I have tried with limited success, mostly failure
    Plex
    Playon
    Chrome Browser
    Connect VIA Windows 10
    Steamlink
    Roku (mulitple)

    I have been able to cast to roku VIA playon, No success with Plex opening on Chrome or Firefox.
    Chrome browser only lets me cast youtube, no desktop mode, and says unavaliable for casting (Even browser)
    Connect VIA PC, only gives a few monitors to cast to , that is it.
    I have checked TV settings and all seems fine. (as far as I see)
    TV lists on other devices on PC. And all devices are on same network.

    Goal.
    Trying to bypass Steam and Steamlink to show my desktop on the Samsung TV.

    :)

    Casting Photos to TV via Chromecast

    Hi Donald,



    Thank you for the reply.



    Try the steps listed below to cast Desktop screen:

    • Make sure the Chromecast is connected to the TV and both the devices are On.
    • Expand the Google Cast extension icon and select
      ‘Cast screen/window (experimental)’ option.
    • When prompted to cast entire screen,
      Accept and click on ‘Share’.
    • Open ‘Photos App’ to mirror photos on the PC.


    You may search for an app that can cast your media to any
    Google Cast device on your favorite search engine, and install it from the Store.



    Regards,

    Cast or Duplicate laptop screen on TV


    Hello
    I want to either duplicate or cast my laptop screen to my tv. I have acer spin 3 with windows 10 and Vizio smartTV.
    I have cast on google Chrome, so from there I am able to cast to the TV. I have the cast button(link on right click), in Opera, but it does not work. Opera cannot find any Cast destinations.
    On Windows side, if I search for wireless display from notifications/project area, it does not find my TV. If I click Connect in the notifications area, it does not find my TV.
    The TV is listed under Other devices in my devices and printers settings, but is always disconnected.
    I have attached images for this.
    Please help,
