I was asked if a chromecast was worth the money.... nope [rofl02.gif]

If you have a smart tv, you don't need one... its build into the tv like most things. Sony and samsung have apps for this like all tv manufacturers do.

I was showing someone how to do this in windows 10 last week.

If you stream from non approved Samsung sites the inbuilt tv version blocks them. If you stream sport or movies like many of us do a Chromecast is needed to get around this inbuilt block.

Hmmm we all know your a bit thick :rolleyes:

So I'm going to write this in a way you can understand [adrian.gif]

Casting is the same as running a cable from your phone or computer, but without the cable.
Wot you see on the phone or computer comes up on your tv.
Its a "mirror"

The tv makers have nothing to do with your computer or phone and cant control screen content.

Try streaming a movie site such as popcorn time from your phone to your TV without a Chromecast and see what happens.

I'm aware of what popcorn time is. I'm also aware is not fully legal. But then very few free sport or movie streaming sites are. But the question was, " is a Chromecast worth the money". And the answer is yes. If you want to watch these sites on your TV then you can't do it without one.

I think it's only you on this site [spank.gif]

Chromecast was marketed as a upgrade for older tv's with no internet built in. And your still missing the point......if you can see it on your computer...you can see it on your tv....without using Chromecast [adrian.gif]
