Dreamstage events can be viewed either through the Dreamstage web app from the browser of your choice (Chrome, Firefox, or Safari recommended), or for Apple TV owners, through the Dreamstage app for tvOS.


 


Below is a selection of methods for viewing events from the Dreamstage web app on your TV. Note, most methods require a smart TV, and/or casting enabled device. For more extensive setup guides, please refer to the respective manufacturer support documentation.


 


1. Chromecast


Chromecast allows you to cast media from your device to your TV, and for some supported devices, it also works for screen mirroring.


 


2. Roku Streaming Stick, Amazon Fire TV Stick


These devices function similarly to Chromecast, and support casting from a range of devices, including smartphones, PCs, laptops, and tablets.


 


3. Miracast


Devices with Windows 8.1 and Android 4.4 have built-in support for Miracast. Devices such as Roku Streaming Stick or the Fire TV Stick support Miracast, and Miracast devices are available from Microsoft and Belkin. Due to the complexity of setup, Miracast is generally not recommended as the first viewing option. Also see how to Cast To Smart TV From Windows 10 Device.


 


4. Mirror Laptop or PC Display Using HDMI


Most laptops and PCs allow direct connection to your TV's display input using an HDMI cable. Modern laptops and MacBooks may require a USB-C to HDMI adapter.


 


5. AirPlay and AirPlay 2


If your streaming device and viewing device both belong to the Apple ecosystem, screen mirroring using the AirPlay or AirPlay 2 options has built on support. If one of your devices is an Apple TV, please visit our guide on how to Watch on Apple TV. iPhone and iPad also support screen mirroring using HDMI via a converter, such as the Lightning Digital AV Adapter.


 


6. Android Devices


There are a variety of ways to cast from an Android device to a supported streaming device or smart TV, either via app or from the Quick Settings menu.


 


7. Native Smart TV Browser


Due to limited functionality and software support from most native smart TV browsers, we generally recommend against choosing this as your primary viewing method.
