    Casting video from Windows 10: what protocols?


    Hi,

    I understand the new media player in Windows 10 will cast to a media center such as an Nexus Player or Amazon Fire TV, much like Airplay, but will access local media.

    Is this a Google Cast (Chrome cast), Miracast, DNLA or some other protocol?

    Thanks



    :)

    MIracast to television via Roku device. Image perfect, however the only sound produced is static.

    I have the EXACT same problem as everyone else here. I am disheartened that this problem goes back to last spring and still there is no viable solution.

    I was able to cast from my Windows 10 computer to my Roku 3 on many occassions with no problems with either the audio or video. Just today, the video still casts perfectly, but audio cannot be listened to as it is high pitched static.

    I wanted to determine if it was the Roku or the PC, so I cast from my Android phone and was able to cast audio and video with no problem, leading me to believe it is a problem with the Windows 10 component of my PC.

    For what it is worth, I can cast the video to my tv and listen to the audio through my PC, but it is awkward and out of sync. The problem occurs when the speakers are set to Digital Output (). When set this way, the problem in the first paragraph occurs.

    PLEASE MICROSOFT address this!
