Hi, I have been tryiong to workout a solution for travelling (hotels etc) where we can play MPW local videos (mkv’s etc) to a chromecast when there is no wifi lan or internet available.
Essentially all we would need to carry is MPW and chomecast and plug the chromecast into the HDMI port any TV.
- When we are camping we use MPW, ipad(s), BT speaker and an app called PlayerXTreme and it works really well
- Ideally we want to extend this same setup to play via a chromecast to a TV with HDMI port (no BT speaker just use TV speaker) or use my Android smartphone to cast to the TV in place of the iPad.
We purchased an iOS app called Screen Mirror which makes the Chromecast show up as a device in AirPlay. I believe I had it working with the Chromecast built in to our Nvidea Shield when we are at home on our LAN connected to the internet but I have not been able to get it to work on the road. I have had a few goes at this and am starting to think that this isn’t going to work or I am missing something a bit obvious. Any ideas?
I have tried on a couple different Chromecasts and updated there firmware etc.
Should this be doable, is there another App that I can use to do this or how do I go about it?
Ideally I just wanted to use a phone or ipad to connect to MWP via WiFi and cast to the TV/Chromecast directly some how.
