Playing my Android phone video on my TV


I have a Smart TV with built in WIFI. I can stream youtube videos from my Android 8 phone to the TV.


However, is there a way to play a video that I recorded with my phone to the TV without having to upload that video onto youtube first?


There are a few HDMI input ports on the back of my TV. Is it as simple as getting a HDMI to USB Type C cable and hook my phone to it then set the TV input to HDMI? Will that work? Or I need something else?

Re: Playing my Android phone video on my TV


Depends on which exact model of phone you have. HDMI isn't supported universally in phones.

You could stream the screen via Wi-Fi. There a slight delay but it works for videos. There's multiple standards. You'll have to see if your "smart" TV supports any of them. If it doesn't, there's always various Wi-Fi/hdmi streaming dongles available. Cheaper products tend to be more flaky.

Cheers!

Re: Playing my Android phone video on my TV


What type (make/model) of TV do you have?

If your TV has screen mirroring, it might be possible to do it wirelessly. Google "screen mirror android phone to smart TV" to see some advice on that subject.

miamicuse: I suggest you should take a look for Google Chromecast. It allows you to easily stream content - images / video / youtube and so on. It would totally solve your issues. Moreover - it costs about 30$, make sure to buy the v2 though - you'll be fine
