How to Cast Without WiFi: A Straightforward Guide
There’s no denying that casting devices, such as Chromecast and Roku, have enhanced our viewing experiences. However, they are often dependent on Wi-Fi for their functionality, causing a predicament when you find yourself lacking a connection. Fear not, as there are methods to cast without Wi-Fi, and here’s how you can achieve this.
Using Screen Mirroring
Smart TVs and Mobile Devices
Modern smart TVs and mobile devices come with an integrated feature for screen mirroring. This lets you directly cast your device’s screen onto your TV, bypassing the need for Wi-Fi. The feature might be named differently depending on your device’s manufacturer e.g., Samsung refers to it as Smart View while Apple calls it Airplay.
1. Begin by setting both devices to Discoverable.
2. On your mobile device, navigate to the Screen Mirroring section found typically within the settings.
3. Select your TV from the list of available devices.
4. If prompted, accept the pairing request on your TV. Your devices should now be screen mirroring.
If screen mirroring isn’t an option, using a USB stick for casting is a reliable method. Here are the steps:
USB Casting Steps
1. Transfer files to a USB stick.
2. Plug the USB stick into your TV’s USB port.
3. Open the media player on your TV, usually accessible through the ‘Source/Input’ button on your remote.
4. Navigate to the USB setting and select your desired content to cast.
Such methods allow you to enjoy your favorite content without an internet connection by casting without Wi-Fi.
