Web video cast is a great way to stream online videos and movies on your TV. The way it works is, you hook up your iPhone or iPad to your Chromecast enabled or connected TV. After that, you can play any online video from your phone and cast it on the big screen. It makes casting videos, movies, TV shows, news, sports, and even live videos super-easy.
It’s also a really awesome way to spend time with your friends and family. Just ease back on your couch and watch any video or movie on your TV wirelessly from your phone. It’s super convenient, easy and reliable.
Another benefit is that it casts the video on the big screen making it look incredibly real and sharp. In stark contrast, simply playing your video from your iPhone isn’t exactly fun. The screen is really small and the overall experience is quite dull and unenjoyable.
The only tricky part in this whole process is that Apple DOES NOT provide any built-in feature for web video cast. Therefore it is evident that we have to look elsewhere for a third-party mobile app that DOES offer this feature.
Talking about mobile apps, as of February 2019,
the total number of apps on the App Store exceeds 2 million.
So we have a lot of options to choose from in any type of app category. You can easily find a variety of relevant apps just by searching for “Web Video Cast” on the App Store.
Let’s look at one of these apps today and see how we can use it to cast any web video from the iPhone or iPad on the TV.
