  • SmartTV mirroring
    Edit: maybe micraclecast might help but it seems a bit complex to set up. Seems it doesn't support connecting to external displays yet. So not very useful for this use case. Source: 8 months ago
  • How can I mirror the screen on my Windows 10 laptop on my Linux device?
    I tried running Miraclecast on the Linux device, but it requires me to stop the network manager, which isn't acceptable as I need an internet connection to the device. Source: 9 months ago
  • Screen mirroring.
    With that said, there are ways to do it. Miraclecast (see ) is the most well-known Miracast implementation, but I've never been able to get it working - I got it to work as a sink, i.e. I was able to cast to it, but only at about 0.5 fps, and as I said, I was never able to get it to work to cast to another device. It looks like you might need to use a special branch of... Source: about 1 year ago
  • Screen mirroring.
    If you can confirm that your TV supports Miracast, try and see if that works for you. It's got packages in the AUR with and without Systemd. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Anyone know how I might be able to connect my Steam Deck to an older Dell wireless monitor?
    If you’re comfortable on Linux (you’ll have to open the read only os and install some things. There’s a guide in my post history), you can look at this it’s a Linux implementation of Miracast which dell montiors use. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Init system
    Https:// and are prime examples of this second case, there is nothing they do that actually requires systemd itself, but they have no real way to run them without it. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Best way to get web browser on TV
    If you're running a Win10 server then it should be natively supported, but on Linux, you'll want to look @ MiracleCast. Added bonus is that you can set it up to do all sorts of things, display wise. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Show HN: Ytcast – cast YouTube videos to your smart TV from command-line
    Chromecast is completely closed-source, I'd argue against buying into that ecosystem. Nymphcast [1] is an alternative, but wouldn't be compatible with existing clients, since the protocol is different. Miraclecast [2] is an implementation of miracast/wi-fi display that runs on Linux. There is also a myriad of alternatives: vnc, raspicast, etc. Leapcast [3] used to be an implementation of what you want (while using... - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Found a pretty cool pic on the Steam Page of the Deck! Shows off a pretty cool perspective.
    There is a Linux Software to get that working quickly: it tho still has some latency with videos, so its only good for spectators. Works with lots of TV tho, use it on my laptop for powerpoint presentations. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Miracast on OEM disabled devices
    I'm having issues on my computer side, following miraclecast instructions. Source: over 2 years ago
  • mirror display to miracast
    Well.. An idea how to use a miracast device as a screen? I played a bit with Miraclecast, but it already failed on starting the daemon. And I don't really wanna chosse between having a network-connection or a screen-connection. And Gnome Network Displays basically seems to be only for Gnome or X11-based systems.

  • Duet as second monitor for other chromebook
    Try running MiracleCast on the linux side for Windows devices. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Are there plans for an integrated screen casting tool for remote displays (Chromecast etc.) in Plasma?
    MiracleCast already exists for Miracast, but it's far from user friendly to set up, as well as Mkchromecast for, well, Chromecast, but it would be nice to have it all integrated into one easy to use applet in Plasma. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Miracast receiver/server sending audio to Behringer S16 stagebox (parallel to X32)
    I would like to enable everybody to use the sound system without needing key access to the control both and controlling the X32. Is there perhaps some way of switching inputs via some sort of USB interface. Maybe I could install Miraclecast on a Raspberry Pi which then would also turn on the projector via infrared. It would also require some sort of RPi-managed HDMI switch. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Can I cast or mirror my TV screen onto my Linux Laptop?

  • Receive Miracast on Linux
    Hi, I was wondering if there was any way of receiving from a Miracast device (i.e., my phone) on my Linux desktop (in my case, Arch Linux). I know that windows can do that (“projecting to this pc”) but sadly not in VMs, and I've found this GitHub project which seems to do what I want, but it was written for the Raspberry Pi, so I think it would need some modifications to run on x86 Arch.

  • Conference Room wireless TV for presentation
    There are three different wireless display protocols. The most standard is now called "Miracast" and is used by Window; Linux has support. Google's is "Chromecast". Apple's is "AirPlay". Source: almost 3 years ago
  • And they said it couldn't be done! I turned my old chromebook into a lapdock running Linux. Guide coming later.
    Im not using miracast for the actual display. It's only used as the trigger to get the DeX display avaliable to scrcpy. For miracast I used miraclecast. Follow the guide to set it up and once it's done the DeX connect to TV page should list Miracle as an option. Use that. Connect your phone via USB and run. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • miracast for chromium os (cloudready)
    I searched online and found this project called miraclecast. But I heard that the linux container under chromium os doesn't support audio. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • NymphCast – open-source Chromecast Alternative
    Https:// might be an interesting alternative, based on the widespread Miracast standard. No idea how up-to-daye that codebase is, though. - Source: Hacker News / almost 3 years ago
  • AirReceiver alternative for Linux?
    Yes, but for now you cannot use it at the same time as a wifi network. Https:// Source: about 3 years ago
