How do I share my computer screen to 3rd party devices like Chromcast?

Posted

I am wondering if Firefox will incorporate a function allowing the projecting or sharing of one's PC screen to third party devices that use WIFI like Chromecast, Apple TV or Firestick? I like the Firefox browser better than others and it is my default. This feature would be nice to have if it is possible.

Hi, as mentioned Chromecast is proprietary Software and can not be used by Firefox as Google will not allow it.

As for developing something I have heard that there maybe but no idea for sure or when.

Note that you run an outdated Shockwave Flash plugin (current is 31.0.0.108).

  • Shockwave Flash 28.0 r0

You can download the latest Flash player plugin for Firefox on this page.

Separate Security Issue, please update your Flash 28.0 r0 by removing it with this tool : https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html If you use it Reinstall with Flash Player Version: 31.0.0.108 Current Version https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ Step 1: Select Operating System Step 2: Select A Version (Firefox, . . . .)

Hi, you can share on anything at the OS level. A HDMI cord from Video to HDMI 2

Windows 10 Screen mirroring https://www.thewindowsclub.com/mirror-windows-10-screen-to-another-device

All things can be found if google for them. Not enough information as to what your looking to do. What your looking to cast. The Right Click Menu is in Firefox to Send to Device & Cast to Device.

You can Cast with a Android phone now but not with a desktop/laptop as of yet.

Will not be able to say chromecast as that is propitiatory software.

Question owner

Let me clarify. I have a Chromecast Ultra and if I use the Chrome Browser on any PC, I can cast from the browser to the Chromecast device with a function that is built into the browser. I can choose a single tab or my desktop from Chrome. I was hoping that Mozilla could also build this function into the Firefox Browser.
