Casting issues refer to problems encountered while trying to display content from one device to another, such as from your device to a television or monitor using a browser.

Casting allows you to send content wirelessly from one device to another. It’s most commonly used to send a screen or audio from a mobile device or laptop to a larger screen.

Open the Chrome browser, then select the three-dot-menu at the top-right. Select ‘Cast’, then choose your device from the list that appears.

If your device isn’t listed, ensure it’s compatible with Chromecast and that it is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer.

Yes, you can cast from Chrome on both Android and iOS devices.

Make sure you are attempting to cast from the YouTube website in your Chrome browser and not from the YouTube app. If you are still having issues, it could be due to your network or device settings.

Audio and video lag can be caused by a slow network, WiFi interference, or by the device you’re streaming to not being able to process the data fast enough. To fix, try refreshing the page, restarting your router, or reducing the quality of the video you’re streaming.

No, only one device can be connected to a screen via casting at a time.

Check your screen resolution settings. You can adjust them to fit your TV or monitor screen.

This may be caused by a slow network connection, a poor signal, or low-quality source content.

Restart your respective devices. If issue persists, consider resetting your Chromecast and ensuring it is updated to the latest software.

While you cannot block others, you can establish who has access to your Wi-Fi network.

Ensure the volume is turned up on both your device and your television, monitor, or audio equipment.

Consider lowering the quality of the video you’re casting, or ensure a stable and high-speed Wi-Fi connection.

The black screen could be due to poor internet connectivity or app glitches. Restart your device, and browser, and try casting again.

No, casting requires a Wi-Fi network both devices can connect to.

While there’s no set limit, performance is best when the devices are in the same room or within close proximity.

This could be due to a problem with your network connection or a glitch in the Chrome browser. Try refreshing the webpage, or restarting your browser and device.
