1. install the chromecast settins app https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... .app&hl=en
2. tap on the ≡ symbol on the top left
3. tap the cast screen / audio option
4. you are now casting everything

with chromecast you can also cast anything from a desktop chrome browser.
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

Like :bravo: (Administrator, why did you get rid of the like like feature).
This sounds exactly like The Doctor ordered. How much for one of these chrome devices? Is the quality OK? Can it support at least two devices (used separately of course).
My wife and I use the TV for playing audio MP3's for the classroom and showing webpages and videos to the family. ..
The "Chromecast" choice has been popping up in many apps as if they think it is "standard". If it is, then I guess that would be the way to go.

You should be able to get one for under 1400 NTD. You can get it for free with some phone/home internet plans.
