    Watching videos from pc and viewing on TV


    I have the HDMI connected from TV to graphics card HDMI. I'm I suppose to have it there or on the HDMI on the computer? Also having it connected to my graphics card, all that shows on TV is my wallpaper from PC. How do I get to start viewing a movie from the PC? I used to use Allshare but since windows 10 it won't work and they discontinued the program. I used to be able to play a movie in the videos through the Allshare program and watch it on TV, sound and all. Is there anything out there now that I can do the same. My husband doesn't like watching movies on the PC monitor.

    :)

    View video on TV

    Here is my problem :

    My TV (Sony Bravia) is upstairs in the livingroom.

    My PCs are downstairs, one running Windows8.1, one running Windows10.

    All connected with cable-LAN.

    Until last week, both PCs were running Windows8.1, and I could view

    videos from both PCs on the TV.

    But after I installed Windows10 on one PC (PC10), I cannot access videos on

    that PC from the TV.

    I know I can use "Cast to Device" on PC10, but that is not practical,

    having to start the video on the PC10 downstairs and then rush upstairs

    to watch the video on the TV.

    View video on TV

    By selecting the TV as active monitor, I still have to use the PC keyboard and mouse to select what video I like to view on the TV.

    What I like to do (as I'm doing on my WIN8 PC) is to use the TV remote control to select the video file.

    Watching videos from pc and viewing on TV

    I can't get a video to stream to my lg smart tv in full screen , it's playing full screen on the pc no problem

    Hi Steve,

    To assist you better, I like to know; how exactly you are trying to stream video from your PC to LG Smart TV?

    As an initial step, I suggest you to try updating the display adapter on your system.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Click on the Start button, and type Device Manager on the search bar.
    • Open Device Manager, expand Display Adapters.
    • Find and double-click Display Adapters from the left panel to update.
    • Right-click the device, and click Update.

    As you are able to play the video full screen in your PC, then it might be an issue related to LG Smart TV. I suggest you to check for the LG Smart TV manual and check what all settings need to done to play video in full screen.

    Kindly reply to us, with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.
