Hi need some knowledgable help. So i know u can stream/watch on the fetch tv box n phone but can you use the box like a wireless mirror cast/chrome cast device?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Chromecast is the way to go.
Miricast just mirror what you have on your screen, and is not supported by IOS. Because it just mirrors your screen you do need an android tablet to obtain a resonable picture.
Whereas with Chromecast you can cast to your TV from Android or IOS, using a smart phone or tablet, and the Chromecast dongle acts like a transmitter between the streaming service and your tv.
Chromecast is supported by mnay streaming apps, such as Netflix, Stan, Freeview and not forgetting optus Sport
You can only cast from apps that are already on Yes TV by Fetch (YouTube, Netflix, Stan etc). There is no functionality to mirror your phone.
Thankyou thats exactly what i wanted to know.
Im going to get google chrome is there much difference in the 1st or 2nd one?
Also whats the android box like was thinking bout getting it for my brother?
There's not a huge difference between the 2 models. I have a Gen 1 in the lounge and Gen 2 in my bedroom, couldn't notice a difference with general use.
Wouldn't be able to comment on the Android Box though I'm afraid, yet to have some hand on experience with one.
You can mirror using 'smart view' to chromecast on android using the fetchtv 'fetch mobi' app on your phone. (aka phone mirroring)
works beautifully off my galaxy s7
Just make sure you plugin in your phone to usb charger as it's streaming off your phone to the chromecast as well as from the internet.
So I now just have the latest chromcast setup to my t. So I got youtu d fetch netglux can mirror my phone what are so.e other useful apps and also can I somehow now get fetch and connect that to my Chromecast?
Just realised on android that when you push play on a show, you can just click on the chromecast icon (top right of the screen) and your chromecast can pick up the stream (without mirroring your phone)
