How canyhou cast video from PC to ROJU?
« on: February 11, 2018, 11:30:08 AM »
A friend said l you can not do that.   :'(
But on the Internet there are some articles that say you can.  :-\
But they are near impossible me to understand.   :-[
Look here:

How to Use Your Roku Like a Chromecast.

Does this work?
My PC has updated Windows 10 pro 32 bit with Chrome and Edge browsers.
The Roku is one of the early models.
Can anybody here provide a simple explanations of how it can be done?

Thanks in advance.  :)

Navigate to the Home screen on the Roku.  On your PC, open Chrome and go to Netflix or Youtube and start a video playing. In the upper right-hand corner of the browser, click on the cast icon.  That will bring up a list of available devices to cast to, the Roku should be in that list, if so, select it and the video will appear on the TV connected to the Roku.  If the Roku doesn't show up in the list, it could be that your model is too old (maybe check with Roku tech support), or both need to be connected to the same network or some other network issue.
