Streaming to Chromecast

Make sure that you are connected to the same wireless network as your Chromecast compatible device and to have the Google Cast extension installed in your browser. We also recommend pinning Chromecast icon to the Chrome toolbar for more convenience. If you are having trouble setting up your Chromecast device, please refer to this guide.

1. Click the Chromecast icon

If the browser detects a Chromecast in the same network, the player will display the Chromecast icon.

2. Choose your target device

A popup will appear next to the Chromecast icon in the Chrome toolbar. Click on one of the listed devices to start casting.

3. Control the stream

You can control the streamed video (set volume and subtitles, seek content, pause, play etc.) through the regular player controls in the browser.

4. Stop casting

To stop casting click on the cast icon in the player or Chrome tab directly and then select currently playing device to stop.
