Connecting the phone to the TV with an MHL adapter or directly via HDMI - video tutorial

Hi friends, tutorial Today I will do what I promised a few tutorials ago, I connect a phone and a tablet via cable, this is the first step on the way to steer console games based on Android, we still have online only Sixaxis controller bluetooth Dual Shock and that's it.
Until another one today I will connect a tablet and a phone to the TV, in the first case it is simple, because we will use directly the HDMI cable - mini HDMI, this is because the tablets (most of them) have mini or micro HDMI port. In the case of the phone things get a little complicated, we will need one MHL adapter (Mobile High-Definition Link), this adapter helps us to sneak digital high definition signal through the USB port, micro USB jack. However, not all phones are compatible MHL.
MHL phone listIs Wikipedia link list will be updated periodically.
What about the rest of phones that can not make such connections?
Hopefully soon we will have something similar on Android AirPlayPotentially there, just a little will and some brilliant brains, if you can send video from your phone to the TV 1080p by DLNA, does it mean that anything can be sent? Unfortunately, DLNA only deals with multimedia, maybe, in the future, who knows….
What helps us connect a phone or tablet to the TV?
If you have seen OnLive tutorialProbably figure out where I want to fight, we do not need is a controller and ready, we will have the smallest and elastic console games, we can play any game on your phone, even games like FIFA, NFS or Crysis can easily be played on a tablet or phone using OnLive platform.
To be more clear: OnLive + Android + MHL or HDMI + TV + bluetooth controller = game console

    It would be nice to exist as an alternative to HDMI cable, Bluetooth or WiFi version to play the same quality. Not the other but who would know about the benefits. Well, ignoring Kies air or AllShare which are limited in function.
    However, with a mini keyboard bluetooth connected, to facilitate the messenger conversation or navigating through browsers. You said well, a mini-blown console.

    And if the TV doesn't have WiFi and Bluetooth, how do you think you could connect a smartphone to it without using a cable…? 🙂
    I want to fly without wings, can it?

    • Yep. Red Bull! It is not charged as such replica is only in spirit joke.
      Possibly with a wireless adapter? Funny thing, are usb tv ul
      I was just asking if it would work wirelessly, for example, but I don't know what programs would be needed, and if it would be a good option. In my mind, only the smartphone-smart TV version would work this way, thinking logically about the fact that certain programs must be installed on both devices, but I ask… because I don't know how and it seems that I was left behind with technology.
      Anyway, thanks for the reply, I hope I have not upset a good day and Happy Holidays.

    Hi, I would like to buy a mhl plug (mobile high-definition link) and I don't know if it is compatible with my phone (samsung galaxy j5 2016). I kept looking for the mhl jack for samsung so as not to buy any "nonsense", something that would guarantee me a video but also audio quality at the highest standards of my phone and unfortunately I didn't see it written on any j5 jack 2016 ″… Can you tell me if it is a mhl plug compatible with j5 2016 and I have impeccable video and audio quality and it moves well without interruptions or delays in image and sound? Something good and compatible with samsung galaxy j5 2016 that I did not find…

  57. Widow Bogdan said

    I apologize for the previous comment, now I saw that j5 2016 does not have mhl support… I would like to know if I have another way to connect the phone to the TV .. another plug or adapter that supports it and offers good video and audio quality ?
