I was wondering if there is any way to cast my Nexus 5 screen on to my Samsung Smart TV without any additional hardware such as chromecast.


If your smart TV supports the Miracast protocol for wireless displays, then you can cast to it just the same way you would a Chromecast.

  • how to check if it supports it or not, btw here is the TV samsung.com/ie/consumer/tv-audio-video/television/led-tv/… – Abdul Jabbar Aug 21 '14 at 8:17
  • If the spec doesn't say it supports it, it probably doesn't. – Dan Hulme Aug 21 '14 at 8:19
  • i used to play movies on it through the "throw screen" feature of Movies app of my Xperia phone, also through my laptop wirelessly using AllShare.. well i guess i'll have to dig it up more to find out what can be done. – Abdul Jabbar Aug 21 '14 at 8:21

In that case the answer would be you can try casting the nexus screen with the help of the Wi-Fi direct which I am sure is supported with the Samsung Smart TV.
