Lg Tv Screencast

Miracast is a standard for wireless connections from sending devices (such as laptops, tablets, or smartphones) to display receivers (such as TVs, monitors, or projectors), introduced in 2012 by the Wi-Fi Alliance. It can roughly be described as 'HDMI over Wi-Fi', replacing the cable from the device to the display.[1]

The Wi-Fi Alliance launched the Miracast certification program at the end of 2012.[2] Devices that are Miracast-certified can communicate with each other, regardless of manufacturer. Adapters became available that may be plugged either into HDMI or USB ports, allowing devices without built-in Miracast support to connect via Miracast.[citation needed] In 2013, Nvidia announced support for Miracast.[3]

LG Screen Share App is a tool that lets you connect your compatible smartphone, tablet, PC, camera, or USB device to your TV. It also showcases all your device audio, video, and photo content in simple menus on your screen. To view your Android phone on LG TV, a good approach is via Screen Mirroring.

Do you have an Android smartphone or tablet? Do you have a Smart TV or Set-Top Box? Did you know that they can communicate with each other? In this short vid. It might be easy to connect your Chromebook to a TV with an HDMI cable, though some Chromebooks require an adapter to plug an HDMI into a USB-C port.

Miracast employs the peer-to-peerWi-Fi Direct standard. It allows sending up to 1080p HD video (H.264 codec) and 5.1 surround sound (AAC and AC3 are optional codecs, mandated codec is linear pulse-code modulation – 16 bits 48 kHz 2 channels).[4] The connection is created via WPS and therefore is secured with WPA2. IPv4 is used on the Internet layer. On the transport layer, TCP or UDP are used. On the application layer, the stream is initiated and controlled via RTSP, RTP for the data transfer.[5][6][7][8]


The Wi-Fi Alliance maintains a list of certified devices, which numbered over 6,700 as of 9 March 2017.[9]

Nvidia announced support in 2012 for their Tegra 3 platform,[10] and Freescale Semiconductor, Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, Marvell Technology Group and other chip vendors have also announced their plans to support it.[11] Actiontec Electronics also supports Miracast with its line of ScreenBeam products.[12]

Both devices (the sender and the receiver) need to be Miracast certified for the technology to work. However, to stream music and movies to a non-certified device, Miracast adapters are available that plug into HDMI or USB ports.[13]

On 29 October 2012, Google announced that Android version 4.2+ (from an updated version of Jelly Bean) supports the Miracast wireless display standard, and by default have it integrated.[14] With Android 6.0 Marshmallow, released in 2015, Miracast support was dropped.[15] Despite this, there are still Miracast apps for Android available.[16]

As of 8 January 2013, the LGNexus 4 and Sony's Xperia Z, ZL, T and V officially supported the function,[17][18] as did HTC One, Motorola in their Droid Maxx & Ultra flagships, and Samsung in its Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II under the moniker AllShare Cast.[19] The Galaxy S4 uses Samsung Link for its implementation.[20]

In October 2013, BlackBerry released its 10.2.1 update to most of the existing BlackBerry 10 devices available at that time. As of March 2015, the BlackBerry Q10, Q5, Z30, and later models support Miracast streaming; the BlackBerry Z10 does not support Miracast, due to hardware limitations.[21]

In April 2013, Rockchip unveiled a Miracast adapter powered by the RK2928.[22]

Microsoft also added support for Miracast in Windows 8.1 (announced in June 2013) and Windows 10.[23][24] This functionality first became available in the Windows 8.1 Preview, and is available on hardware with supported Miracast drivers from hardware (GPU) manufacturers such as those listed above.

The WDTV Live Streaming Media Player added Miracast support with firmware version 2.02.32

The Amazon Fire TV Stick, which started shipping on 19 November 2014, also supports Miracast.

The Roku streaming stick and Roku TV started providing support for Miracast starting October 2014.[25]

On 28 July 2013, Google announced the availability of the Chromecast powered by a Marvell DE3005-A1,[26] but despite the similarity in name and Google's early support of Miracast in Android, the Chromecast does not support Miracast.

On 23 September 2014, Microsoft announced the Microsoft Wireless Display Adaptor, a USB-powered HDMI dongle for high definition televisions.[27][28]

As of late April 2016, the Ubuntu Touch-powered Meizu Pro 5 supported Miracast in OTA-11.[29]


The technology was promoted to work across devices, regardless of brand. Miracast devices negotiate settings for each connection, which simplifies the process for the users. In particular, it obviates having to worry about format or codec details.[30] Miracast is 'effectively a wireless HDMI cable, copying everything from one screen to another using the H.264 codec and its own digital rights management (DRM) layer emulating the HDMI system'. The Wi-Fi Alliance suggested that Miracast could also be used by a set-top box wanting to stream content to a TV or tablet.

Types of media streamed[edit]

Miracast can stream videos that are in 1080p, media with DRM such as DVDs, as well as protected premium content streaming, enabling devices to stream feature films and other copy-protected materials. This is accomplished by using a Wi-Fi version of the same trusted content mechanisms used on cable-based HDMI and DisplayPort connections.[31]

Certification does not mandate a maximum latency (i.e. the time between the display of pictures on the source and display of the mirrored image on the sync display).

Although touted as a major feature of Android Kit Kat, support in Android was dropped in 2015, and Computerworld observed that 'Miracast never quite caught on as a standard'.[15]

OS support[edit]


The latest Windows 10 release supports Miracast receiving along with User Input Back Channel (UIBC) support to allow for human interface devices (touch screens, mouse, keyboard) to also have wireless connectivity (provided the host hardware also supports this). Windows 8.1 supports broadcasting/sending the screen via Miracast. Miracast is also built into Windows Phone 8.1.[34] Developers can also implement Miracast on top of the built-in Wi-Fi Direct support in Windows 7 and Windows 8.[35] Another way to support Miracast in Windows is with Intel's proprietary WiDi (v3.5 or higher). A software-based Miracast receiver for Windows 8.1, AirServer Universal, was made available on 31 October 2014 by App Dynamic.[36]

iOS and macOS[edit]

Apple does not support the Miracast standard on iOS or macOS, instead using its own proprietary peer-to-peer AirPlay protocol.

Linux desktop[edit]

MiracleCast[37] provides early support for Miracast, but is not tied to that single protocol.

Wireless Display Software for Linux OS (WDS)[38] initial Miracast support, developed by Intel.


Google currently does not support the Miracast standard on the stock version of Android in version 6.0 Marshmallow and later. However, some manufacturers of Android devices step in and support Miracast through their software on custom versions of Android (for example: Smart View on Samsung's One UI, Cast on Xiaomi's MIUI, Screencast on Oppo's ColorOS, Wireless Projection on Huawei's EMUI, HTC Sense, LG UX, Asus ZenUI, Sony Xperia devices, OnePlus's OxygenOS etc.).[39] The performance quality of the streamed video is dependent on the Android device's processor.

Miracast support had been built into stock Android with version 4.2 (Android Jelly Bean)[40] and starting with Android 4.4, devices could be certified to the Wi-Fi Alliance Display Specification as Miracast compatible.,[41] but support was dropped with Android 6.0 Marshmallow in 2015 in favor of Google's own proprietary Google Cast protocol.[15]

Nokia devices, which ran a near-stock version of Android, originally did not support Miracast. However, Nokia 7 Plus, 8, 8 Sirocco, and 8.1 smartphones that have been upgraded to Android 9 or 10 are able to support Miracast, after enabling Wireless Display Certification in Developer Options. Devices such as Nokia 2.3, 2.4, 3.4, 5.4, and 8.3 5G have Miracast support enabled by default.[42]

BlackBerry OS[edit]

Miracast is also supported by BlackBerry OS from version 10.2.1 onwards.
