    question in relation to casting content to TV


    Currently lm using media player mainly because its the only thing lve found so far, however after accidentally touching my mouse and ending up at the beginning of a file again unable to seek 40min in leaving me frustratingly having to watch most of the file again, lve decided to ask if there was something a little better that will allow me more control, the main reason for casting is that my laptop speakers are pants and that its a pain disconnecting and reconnecting my connected external daily.

    basically put if l cant get Audio Video Sharing working (l did try it, but it doesnt locate my files over the network just the folders) then casting is the only option l have since l can get the audio to go through my soundbar, but l really want to be able to have more control over the playing file without having to turn my TV into a monitor if that makes sense. any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    :)

    Unable to Cast to Device to my Smart TV


    Thanks Bree.

    The other similar thread to this says 'Cast to' used to work to a Samsung TV but now it doesn't. This would imply something is 'wrong' with our Win 10?

    Can anyone suggest some more troubleshooting steps to try to determine what the issue is?

  3. Casting Windows 10 desktop to TV using Chromecast

    No problem. I think I've been doing exactly what you showed. However, I still can't get this to work. here is a description of the steps I take. Maybe you can see what I'm doing wrong.

    1. Turn on TV.
    2. Using COMCAST remote, press TV Input button until “Video 3 Chromecast” is shown.
    3. Power up Surface.
    4. Start Chrome browser. Homepage displays.
    5. Click the menu icon (3 vertical dots) in the upper right of screen.
    6. Click Cast…
    7. Click Cast>Den TV
    8. Blue Cast icon is displayed at upper right.
    9. Click Sources.
    10. Select Cast Desktop. After this NOTHING happens. TV still display the Google homepage content.

    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,
