Chrome will learn how to stream media files to a TV

Chrome still can not broadcast media files on TV, but only the desktop or browser tabs. To broadcast video from PC to a TV with Chromecast support, you need to access third-party applications. Here someone would simplify the task.

They were found

The Google team created an easy way to broadcast video from the computer screen. Chief propagandist Chrome Francois Beaufort said that the team added a new chip to the beta version of the browser. Cast file allows you to select a file with music, video or image, and broadcast it to TV.

To send to, press the broadcast button to the right of the address bar. From the pop-up menu, select the media file and output device. Useful if you often use the broadcast from PC to the TV, and can not tolerate third-party applications.

Do not throw away crutches

The update is available only in the beta version of Chrome and not for everyone. If there are no options for translating the file, we will activate it manually. Go to the desktop, click on the Chrome icon with the right mouse button and select "Properties". We search for the tab "Label", "Object" and add the command "- enable-features = EnableCastLocalMedia".
