Stream video to your TV using Chromecast

How can I use RealTimes with my Chromecast to watch videos on my TV?

Step 1: Install RealTimes on your mobile device or PC

You can find the right version of RealTimes for any of your devices here. It is currently compatible with Windows 7 and above, Mac OS X, iOS, Android and Kindle Fire.

Once installed, log in to your RealTimes account or create a new one. It only takes a moment and is completely free.

Step 2: Plug in your Chromecast

This step goes without saying but just in case, make sure your Chromecast is plugged in and ready to cast. If you haven’t set it up already, just follow the straightforward on-screen instructions to get it connected to your WiFi.

Step 3: Connect to your Chromecast on your Smartphone or Tablet

Open RealTimes on any of your Chromecast compatible devices (most smartphones or tablets). Also, make sure that you are connected to the same WiFi as your Chromecast.

If RealTimes detects a new Chromecast on the network, it will prompt you to connect to it. Click on the casting logo and select your Chromecast.

When RealTimes has successfully connected to your Chromecast, the logo will turn blue and the RealPlayer splash screen will show up on your TV.

Once you're all set and ready to cast, you will see this image:

Step 4: Play a video!

When your device is successfully connected to your Chromecast, you can pick any video you'd like to play. You can cast videos that are either saved directly on your device or anything that is already uploaded into your cloud account.

Remember that Play, Pause, Tracking and Volume changes can all be done from your device.

Step 5: Open RealTimes on your computer

If you’d like to cast a video to your TV that is saved on your computer, all you have to do is make sure RealTimes is open on that computer, connected to the same WiFi and signed in to the same RealTimes account.

Then, from your smartphone or tablet, select your computer from the dropdown on the Photos & Videos tab. Browse for the video you want and select it to play!

Note: To enjoy the best video quality, upload your videos to the cloud first rather than casting directly from your device.
