HELPFUL STREAMING HINTS 

We recommend that you check your devices and familiarise yourself with casting well in advance of the performance time. 

To play performance links on your TV you will need a Chromecast or access to your emails on your TV. 

Chromecast 

If you are using a laptop with your Chromecast, you will need to open your email in the Google Chrome browser. 

Right click your mouse and click cast and select the device you want it casted to, to share the video. 

Or you can click the three dots () in the top right corner of your screen, click cast and select your device, to share your full laptop screen on your TV. 

Some videos will also have a casting icon on the video (), click this and select your device. 

Phone to SmartTV by either Wifi or Chromecast 

Go to the Wireless Projection/SmartView (Android)/Screen Mirroring (IOS) setting on your Smart Phone and turn it on – This is usually located in the swipe down tab on your phone. 

This will give you the option to share your phone screen to either your Smart TV or Chromecast. 

You may need to approve this on either your phone or TV - the device will let you know. 

Once this is done and your screen is sharing, turn on your phone screen to Auto Rotate. 

Go to your emails on your phone, open the link and make it full screen.

You can also get HDMI cables for your phone at any major electronics stores if necessary.
