Casting Mint 19 screen to tv

Post by deepakdeshp » Thu Oct 18, 2018 4:54 pm

Hello,
Is it possible to cast comments of my computer running Mint 19 Cinnamon to my tv.
Both are connected to the same wi fi device.
If yes how to do it?
Thanks for any answers.

What casting protocols does your TV support is the first question?

Some possibilities..

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miracast - linux client - https://github.com/albfan/miraclecast
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Cast - you can cast video from Chrome/Chromium.
