How to set up a Chromecast?


Google Chromecast cannot be installed by itself. Let’s go through this tutorial to set up your Google Chromecast.


Plugging in
Grab your Dongle and stick it in. As Chromecast dongle needs more power than HDMI port thus a micro-USB cable is included. It can be run to either the included power adapter, or ideally, an available USB port on your TV. Another problem in this step is that the Chromecast Dongle may not fit suitably in the space carved out around your TV’s HDMI input. For extra flexibility, Google includes a small HDMI extension cable that can easily be plugged into cramped inputs. After plugging in and powered on, switch your TV to the corresponding HDMI input and you can see the Chrome Startup screen as well as an invitation to get started.

Software setup

For connecting Chromecast to Internet, you need to discuss it with your nearby browser. Talking about this case, a MacBook is running Google Chrome browser. Just point it to the address listed on the TV: After that, download a small Chromecast setup application. In starting, you can use the app to locate and identify any nearby Chromecasts. Finally, you reach the step of selecting Wi-Fi network. For the Chromecast to work, it needs to be on the same Wi-Fi network as the devices you want to use it with. Just choose your network from the drop-down list, type in any required password. Also, you can give your Chromecast a personalized name.

But, you are not ready yet. For using the most desirable features of Chromecast’s, you need to install the Google Cast Chrome extension. After this, you get the well-designed little button in the upper-right corner of your browser that will throw the currently displayed tab over your TV by providing you access to the vast world of streaming-video services.

To avoid confusion with services such as YouTube and Netflix, a separate Chromecast button is provided directly on the video player which ultimately kicks the content over at the full screen. Using Chromecast with mobile devices is a different thing. Till now there is no way to send mobile Chrome browser pages to Chromecast. Apart from this, there are Chromecast buttons which includes services like Netflix, YouTube, and Google Play apps such as Play Video and Play Music (Android-only). The advantage of app-specific implementation of the Chromecast is that the screen of your mobile device is transformed into a remote control so as to play, pause, skip or scrub through the content on your screen.

Tips and Tricks

When you use Chrome browser to send content to the Chromecast, you can get messed up with some extra settings. Thus, press the Chromecast button in the top-right corner of your browser, select “Options” and the list of settings will pop up.
