Chromecast 2, put you super smart TV

Chromecast is a device that connects to the TV via HDMI and it transforms the latter into a super smart TV that can do even more than a smart TV.
Some time ago I presented a Android Mini PC that turns ordinary TV into a smart TV; E Chromecast is much harder.

Chromecast 2, put you super smart TV

Chromecast last year was the most purchased device ranging from media players / small PCs, and that abroad, like us, Chromecast success was not so great.
For those unaware, Google Chromecast is done and comes with unique capabilities; Can play online multimedia content independently, the phone is only a kind of remote control. Also Chromecast you can connect your phone to your TV as if you connect via HDMI, but Wireless.
The idea best Chromecast is that you do not consume the battery on the phone, while view YouTube content on the TV, the phone is only used to select content, then Chromecast plays videos directly from YouTube's servers, not on phone.
Chromecast prices (all versions)
Chromecast 2 can be used for gaming, if you want to see Android games on television.
Chromecast we can connect with your laptop or desktop running Windows, through Chrome or some third-party applications.
In the video you will see some demos and tests to get an idea; More'll see in a future episode, where we pry more in this Chromecast 2 version.
For starters, I can say I'm impressed, not expecting to go so well.

    • You can not install Skype than on supported operating systems and devices. Smart TV supports Skype, if the manufacturer has implemented this software on your television, or if you offer the possibility of retrofitting.
      On chromecast can not install Skype.

  52. Cristi Hello! I follow with interest your videotutorialele, I have long use.
    I purchased a chromecast 2 but I can not connect to the TV through it only in situations that I can not explica.Deşi I followed all the steps of "aid" can not connect when you want.
    I wish you a good day !!!

    • Possible causes.

      1. Chromecast may be too far from the router.
      2. It is possible that the wireless settings is not compatible with Chromecast 100%.
      3. Maybe Chromecast is connected to the router through a network "guest" who are not giving it access to the rest of the network.

  53. Streams "acestream" can be easily accessed via Chromecast after you install Ace Stream Play Store app on devices using Android. One of the sites is organized acestream links, and with a simple click on the link can watch a TV channel. The problem is the streams that are to be played on the desktop. Incidentally I found a site that fails to solve the problem, media content "acestream" is easily viewed on TV via Chromecast. Take a look here If you replace the stream will go any TV channel. I took a test just randomly on stream and went. Those who possess advanced knowledge of IT can develop the subject.

    Good Cristi. I did not really understand how to connect PC-TV-ROUTER-CHROMECAST. Could you please make a sketch or steps to follow after I connected Chromecast to TV? I'm also a beginner of age three. Thank you very much!

  75. A new version of AIRFLOW that moves amazingly well and is free on ! With this app, you can watch movies on your PC with Windows operating systems on 32 or 64 bit or Mac OS. If the movie does not have subtitles in most cases it finds the application in the language you want by calling the settings. You can choose subtitle color and font size.

  76. Hi Cristi. I'm using Chromecast 2 from 2016 for YouTube and HBO GO with my phone (android 4.2.2 followed by android 4.4.2.) No more go HBO GO with android 5.1 with android 6.1 ... What to do?
    Thanks for the tutorials, they are very useful.

  77. Does Chromecast only work with a smart phone that has Android 4.4.2 without a wireless router?

  78. A simple question: Does it go without a router? Can I connect to a TV, monitor without it being connected wirelessly to the router ?, Thanks

    For those interested, I inform you that the RCS-RDS DIGI ONLINE application, by updating from 29.01.2019, comes with new features that we can only appreciate, more precisely, besides a new interface, it also supports Chromecast. Now you can watch 56 TV programs (SD quality) directly on TVs through this device made by Google. The application works perfectly on all 3 Chromecast models capable of rendering HD as well as the 4K. I am saying that for the first 3 models the price is about 200 lei and the range of usage is very wide ... Digi Online can be installed on mobile phones or tablets using the android or laptop system installing in a hard drive partition have around 30GB) REMIX OS, an Android system that can run dual with Windows or Linux. And something else ... if you do not have internet from RDS it is necessary to sign up on their platform, possibly by contacting a friend who accepts to sign in (user and password). Simultaneous 2 devices can run on an account. I do not know if it works from abroad .. I think it is more complicated here .. VPN..etc .. can someone bring clarifications ....
    DIgi Online is an application that includes sports channels, news, themes, movies, lifestyle, music, children, general and foreign, as well as radio programs.

    How to stream movies from your laptop (Windows operating system) to Chromecast ...
    These are the best Windows video players for Chromecast:
    -Soda Player
    -Videostream for Chromecast
    The smoothest playback
    -Hardware-accelerated transcoding
    -Supports 4K
    - Automatic Subtitle from OpenSubtitles
    -5.1 surround sound surround
    Unfortunately, the best software for playing videos is a paid program. But AIRFLOW is worth every penny. What makes it superior to free applications? Try the free trial and you will find out.
    Performance is the main aspect because Airflow supports accelerated hardware transcoding. It also has 5.1 channel audio support for surround sound. Airflow includes complex subtitle control and remembers playlists and last positions.
    Airflow is a great application. It is one of the list that "really does its job."
    If you have a Chromecast Ultra for 4K videos, you can see the difference in performance on native Chromecast file formats, such as MKV. In fact, on Intel Skylake or later processors, Airflow has faster hardware transcoding.
    Free trial is a good way to find out if you want to pay for this application. With it, you can watch up to 20 minutes of video at a time. After you realize that this is the best, pay $ 19 and use it.
    I bought the Premium version but I can tell you that there are some problems with the 1080p video materials, I think because I use the Chromecast 2 version ... maybe with Chromecast Ultra 4k the situation changes.
    The application runs on Windows and MAC
    Official website: .
    2.Soda Player
    -Hardware-accelerated transcoding
    -Supports 4K
    - Automatic Subtitle from OpenSubtitles. Automatically get the right subtitles in your language
    -5.1 and 7.1 surround sound
    - Support for Ace Stream Lyncks
    - BT support almost instantaneously depending on the speed of NET
    - Support for all formats and codecs
    -Support for Chromecast but also for Apple TV
    It's an application that amazed me! . It does its job very well on older laptops or PCs. If on an ACER 7736 ZG (8 years) using the AIRFLOW application the processor works between 60 and 80% in the case of the SODA PLAYER application the processor works under 20%, almost like an audio player !!!. The application does not have a proper playlist, but if you initially select the video and drag (drop) it on the player interface, a playlist will be formed from which you can select which material you want to watch otherwise they will run in a row. almost unnoticeable. The application has other options on it, I will let you discover them on your own, just let you know that the sopcast application runs perfectly after the proper setting of the latter and you can use it as a player on the laptop where the image appears instantly when shooting video in contrast by other players.
    It does NOT support audio formats (.mp3, .wav, .. etc.)
    The application runs on Win. and MAC.
    Official download site:
    3.VIDEOSTREM for Chromecast
    Free remote control app on Android and iOS ...
    There are no playlists or "automatic playback of the next video" in the free version.
    VideoStream is the oldest application that has played videos successfully and easily. It is still pretty good and is the only one with a free remote control for mobile phones. The application can even sync a video folder on your computer, controlling everything from your phone. That being said, Google Assistant already acts as a remote control for basic playback: play / pause, backspace, and fast forward. For the mobile phone, install the app from the Play Store.
    VideoStream started as a Chrome application, but Google has stopped running the Windows application. Therefore, you will need to download the native program.
    You can play a clip without being able to make playlists. Many important features are in the paid version, including playlists, additional subtitle settings, night mode, and automatic playback of the next video. Premium VideoStream costs $ 1,49 per month, $ 14,99 per year or $ 34,99 for a lifetime license.
    It can play both video and audio formats. Personally I am NOT very excited about the application even though I purchased the Premium lifetime variant.
    Supports audio formats.
    The application runs on Win and Mac OS
    Official download site:
    An application that needs to be improved.
    It has no subtitle support.
    Supports audio formats.
    I'm waiting for comments ...
    Wish you all the best!

    Now the Chromecast can be set to operate independently of a local wireless network coming from a router. This is not stated in any video tutorial or in the reviews on the sites, but I discovered this by trying lately. I mention that I have done these tests in the past but with no result. The only idea that I did not have in mind was that, by making HOTSPOT with the tablet (mobile phone), we tried to make the Chromecast setting also with the tablet (mobile phone) and not with the PC (laptop). So what are the steps you need to take to make the Chromecast work directly from your phone? Mobile (tablet) and laptop.
    1. Tel. On mobile data ..
    2. HOTSPOT is made (with password or without password depending on the situation).
    3. Connect the laptop to the HOTSPOT of the phone (tablet).
    4. Enter on
    5. Click on "chromecast configuration" and configure.
    After configuration you can use the video or audio materials to be watched both on the phone. Mobile and on the laptop as long as the hotspot is connected to the phone. Mobile.
    NOTE: The laptop must be connected to the wifi on the HOTSPOT of the phone (tablet) when the configuration is made (Attention .. The Wifi phone (tablet). It has a name or if not, you can choose a name to your preference).
    Note: Sometimes the quality of the image on mobile data can be slightly less qualitative than in the situation where the Chromecast uses data from a router connected to a fixed internet network and this is because the speed on the mobile data is lower and there is the risk of packet loss where the distance to the terrestrial antenna of the operator is greater and the signal becomes unstable ... And the intelligent device adapts to the conditions and in order not to block the image periodically it prefers to play it at a lower quality. Where the signal is appropriate there are no problems.
    This way you can use the Chromecast anywhere you go on vacation or delegation without having to depend on the local WIFI network of the hotel or the place where you are. I come back with a new suggestion ... Regarding the first part of the review ... In case you want to keep the Chromecast's settings without reconfiguring them every time you go to delegations or holidays I suggest you only set up the Hotspot of your mobile phone (or tablet). keeping both the user and the router password you use at home stable ... so simple! ... guaranteed it will work!
