Wireless connection is the solution best and most convenient, but also more expensive.

Connect PC to TV, wireless, Chromecast

New today we use chromecastThat, more recently, knows how to design the entire desktop on the TV.
Of course there are alternatives to Chromecast but These alternatives not as flexible as little Chromecast They are able to do just mirroring and so.

  5. Hello! I want to watch something on Voyo, but when I press start asking me to install Widevine Media Optimizer, even if I have already. Downloading, but my Firefox installation hangs it on the grounds that "the file may be corrupted." I tried all possible, but nothing, same thing.
    Do you have any solution for this?

  6. Thank Christ.

  7. Howdy,

    Adrian Cristea or to do a review on an OS from Jide Remix?
    I put it on a 32 gb stick, although it says that you have to use an 8 gb stick, unfortunately I don't have it available now, the problem is that I can't or it may be due to the stick, it gives me the error "Missing operating system "Although I followed the instructions step by step. Maybe you can find a solution.

    Thank you very much. Also before at least!

  9. I also bought one… .f.interesting… but please can you tell us more about applications related to it… .with more details

    • Cristian will not be able to please everyone no matter how complex it would make a tutorial for some additions there google that takes and he information in bulk and we expose new in a tutorial, he can say It gives a boost through tutorials that make them and we put our minds to it seeking additional information for the needs of everyone. Thanks for the tutorial.

  10. Howdy,
    I bought myself a Chromcast 2 by watching tutorials Christ. TV is HDMI mode is 4k and 60 Hz by default. Let this be a problem for the projection of the device does Chromcast 2 has a latency unpleasant? Basically, if you catch a stream with a football game on laptop sees ok, but the jerky running TV picture. At the movies, the news, not so bad, only the games, probably to games, I tried yet. Where dynamic movement is great, I guess.
    If I would like to use Chromcast 2 elsewhere (another ISP, another tv) How do I reset the Chromcast? Now it's set to wifi and TV from home. I saw no reset button on it.
    And a final question sounds something of a new generation of Chromcast able 4k?

    Thanks in advance and congratulations for Christ and Adrian tutorials!

    • Do not lose sight of the fact that Chromecast site needs good wireless connection. Ideally Wireless AC 802.11. Alternatively, you can ensure that your router is near Chromecast community.

      • To me it is the fiber in the house and with the wireless problems I had before, although I have downstairs router and TV in the living room upstairs. I have wireless signal throughout the house and parking lot in front of the house, but the TV is connected via ethernet cable, but I tested and worked perfectly and wireless.
        I was thinking it might be difficult Chromecast mission has designed 2 when the panel with 4k signal, that's why I was wondering if something sounds of any new model Chromecast leading 4k.

        • Chromecast 1080 not support 4k. With 4k the wireless streaming in, it's hard without seeing problems. There are PCs that can not retrieve / restore 4k cable, not to mention wireless.
          From what I understand from your words, however, the router is too far. Now matter and source streaming, bandwidth allocation at source and server load.
          It's good that you have gigabit, but the server which can make taking video, bandwidth is not enough.

          In streaming we have more variables.
          1. Local bandwidth
          2. Latency
          3. Jitter
          4. Bandwidth source
          5. Local processing power
          6. The speed of the power storage
          7. Local storage speed
          8. It took video format.
          Some formats are easier to forget than others stream. Best to streaming codec is MP4 h264. A MKV or AVI are cumbersome streaming.

          Ps without bond.
          Do you have living room upstairs?

          • Thanks for the detailed answer. I'll do a test will try to send a video file type football game straight from laptop through Chromecast unrelated to the Internet to see if there is any difference. Thus exclude everything related to streaming and wireless internet.

            Regarding the living, the answer is yes. Norway live in an area with panoramic fjord and upstairs fjord seen better than on the first floor, where the view is partially blocked by the neighbors' houses in the front row.

          • Norway… fjord… panorama, I cry for pity 🙂
            All the better to us, where, from the window, you see the neighbor arguing with his wife.

    Chromecast 2 connected to a local Wi-Fi network.
    I 1 On One + VPN connection. Unfortunately fail to design the phone screen ChrCast in this combination. Unless they are connected to the same network. Geolocation just because of restrictions can not access those pages of legal movies, etc.
    Maybe they'll do something at the GGL this purpose.

    Mr. Christian, I follow your published tutorials with interest. I have been using Chromecast 1 since October 2015 and it worked perfectly until a week ago (approx. Until 20.01.2016) with all the facilities presented by you (a small suggestion: it is very useful a Google application- "Videostream for Google Chromecast" -which allows the projection on TV of any movie, of any format from the laptop). But for a week the chromecast is no longer recognized by the TV as "Chromecast" on the HDMI input and no longer starts The stby TV only switches the TV source from the tuner to HDMI, only when the TV is on!
    I think it is an upgrade come on and made one! I think that because Chromecast 1 and another new manifest at fel.Poate find a way to return to the old firmware and block new upgrade.
    I do not know if it affects similarly Chromecast 2.
    Thank you

  15. Hello,

    Hello! Please help me with a problem…. I try to connect my laptop to a TV, but I can't, it searches my network, and nothing happens (it doesn't find). how can i proceed

  20. Hi Cristi, recently in Cromcast 2 when I want to send the full screen from PC to Smart TV just streaming video without audio goes. Stream video and audio only with the "Design this tab" option.
    Some time ago it went smoothly to send audio and video with the option "Design screen / window".
    I tried all the variations we have reset the PC Cromcast 2.
    It can be a problem in Google Chrome upgrade or Cromcast 2?
    Has anyone encountered this problem?

    Your videotutorialele track and had answers to many of my questions!
    Currently I would be interested in Chromecast 2 (which I own) in my car! The S100 multimedia system I have on my car does not allow me access to the Internet via Wifi (IT DOES NOT HAVE)! And the hotspot with Samsung Note 2 GT-N7100 does not do this via USB in the system equipment (the phone restarts)! USB sticks COMPATIBLE WITH THE WIN CE 6 var R3 SYSTEM in which the system works is compatible with some - but older models but which do not guarantee my compatibility with the Digi network I am on on my mobile! There would still be the solution of a MiraCast Airlay wifi but they are expensive! And because I already have Chrome cast 2 I want to use it! I posted below a video tutorial "HOW TO INSTALL CHROMECAST IN YOUR CAR / ANDROID AUTO ALTERNATIVE"! I think it's a good and cheaper solution, what do you think, Mr. Cristi?

  27. good evening
    I purchased a chromecast but I can not install because it is connected router sees it connected laptop and other wireless devices, and you do not have internet connect chromecast wireless.Trebuie made some special settings?
    thank you

  28. Salut.te kindly help me and had chromecast installed and wanted to install it when they begin installation not allowing me I login to my home wifi in wifi automatically enter cromecast What? what to do?

  29. There are those who take Chromecast on AMAZON.COM, as I did.
    By default, those come with 60Hz set.
    Europe needs to 60Hz.Mai much data settings, connect the wireless Chromecast you are warned that the device was not purchased from Romania, as are some wireless channels that you may not go (see which channels are allowed wifi in the US and which are those of Ro).
    It is important to good wireless signal in the house, if you do not get with Ookla testspeed 20mbps quilt, then the situation is sad. Chromecast are rather insensitive stuff on the radio, it's good to be connected router closer. I have a cheap home router norm N theoretically 150mbps practically 92mbps download, upload 96mbps.
    In vain you buy a standard AC router in the home, as Chromecast in 1080 for all of 12mbps gonna need to take off their internet / local.
    We sources on the internet where gorgeous watch in 1080, without stuttering, but more accessible and sometimes, where sacadeaza of you feel like throwing your TV out the window.
    If you know how to use it, chromecast site is an invaluable tool.

  30. Retificare: You need data from 60 settings at 50 Hz for Europe.
