How To: Screen cast with a Laptop/Android
Similar to the iPhone, most laptops and Android have the ability to screen cast – allowing you to stream whatever video you would like from device to TV. The screen share icon is often in the shape of a screen/monitor paired with a triangle or the ‘WiFi’ icon. This will appear on your screen once a video is selected, allowing you to screencast the video onto your TV and enjoy our livestream of your event on your TV with the entire family!
Alternatively, with an HDMI chord/connection you can easily connect your laptop with an open HDMI port on your television.
*Note: Ensure you select the HDMI input on your screen that matches whichever port is connected from your laptop to the back end of your TV. Adjust your computer’s display settings accordingly (Mirrored or Extended Desktop).
