Please review the options below for viewing the stream on your TV:
If your viewing device has an HDMI output connector (either directly or with an adapter), connect an HDMI cable between it and the HDMI input on your TV. There may be a few device settings to adjust, but generally, it is the simplest way to connect and share a viewing device source.
Most of these solutions require TV-connected hardware and/or built-in software installed. In general, newer devices (smartphones, tablets) tend to allow these connections to work more often than older devices, as they are more likely to be Miracast or AirPlay-enabled. Here are basic instructions for current popular options.
Wi-Fi Network (for ANY of the following options)
BOTH your viewing device and your TV/Hardware must on the SAME Wi-Fi or Wired network in order to work together.
Apple TV Hardware (AirPlay for Mac computers, iPhones, iPads, iOS devices)
1) Switch your TV input to your connected Apple TV hardware.
2) On your viewing device, open an approved Browser and enter the full URL of the streaming link.
3) On the Live Stream Player, go to the lower right corner to select the AirPlay icon.
4) Select your AppleTV connected device from the list to Screen share via AirPlay, then select the player Fullscreen icon.
Amazon Fire Stick Hardware (for most Fire Tablets, Android and Windows10 devices)
1) On your TV connected Fire Stick, go to the Settings/Displays menu and Enable Screen Mirroring.
2) On your viewing device, go to the Settings menu, navigate to the Screen Sharing or Screen Casting menu (for Windows10 choose Connect from Launch Action Menu) and choose your activated Fire Stick as the option to share to.
3) On your viewing device, open an approved Browser and enter the full URL of the streaming link and select the player Fullscreen icon.
Google Chromecast Hardware (for most Android and iOS mobiles devices)
1) To set-up, it requires recent versions of both the Google Chrome Browser and Google Home App installed on the viewing device.
2) In the Google Home App, set up Chromecast by adding your TV to the account.
3) In a Chrome tab, enter the full URL of the streaming link.
4) From the upper right More menu, select Cast and your connected TV, then select the player Fullscreen icon. (Note – if your network already has Google Home installed, you can also Cast from most Windows10 devices that have Chrome installed by following steps 3 & 4).
Roku TV Hardware (for most Android and Windows10 devices)
1) On your TV connected Roku, go to Settings/System/Screen Mirroring menus and set it to allow sharing.
2) On your viewing device, go to the Settings menu, navigate to the Screen Sharing or Screen Casting menu (for Windows10, choose Connect from Launch Action Menu) and choose your Roku as the option to share to.
3) On your viewing device, open an approved Browser and enter the full URL of the streaming link and select the player Fullscreen icon. (Note – most Chrome/Android devices feature a Cast icon in the upper right of the window to enable or disable sharing).
Smart TV Input/App Options
Many recent TV’s have their own Screen Sharing or Screen Casting app built within it, but they vary by manufacturer and are viewing device-specific. Generally, it’s a feature that needs to be enabled on the TV first and then accessed by the viewing device. Refer to your TV owner’s manual for more information.
AirPlay2 – available on very recent versions of LG, Samsung, Sony, and VIZIO TVs to primarily support Apple devices.
LG – using their Miracast, Device Connector or Sharing menu option will allow most Windows-based and Android devices to connect.
Samsung – pending the model, they connect via Miracast or WiDi menu options. If you have a recent Samsung mobile device you may also connect with the built-in SmartView technology.
Sony – select the Miracast/Screen Mirror from the TV input list to access select viewing devices.
