My mistake. I failed to click the link you posted and assumed a different sort of 'casting'.robert.faris wrote: ↑Sun Feb 18, 2018 5:46 pmSun Feb 18, 2018 11:41 am
What do you want to 'cast' to where? Surely you need an internet connection to do it.
From a smart phone to a HD TV. As I understand it, the pi, using raspicast mirrors to the TV/RPi via SSH - no internet required. If someone does not have a "net" connection, they can watch - say Utube or Sling on their phone and "project" it to the TV screen.
You will need connectivity between, say, and Android phone and the 'Cast' receiving device.robert.faris wrote: ↑Sun Feb 18, 2018 6:15 pmSun Feb 18, 2018 11:56 am
But I'm curious. What USP do you think a Pi based device would have compared to Chromecast, Firestick, Smart TV's with the feature built in or any number of Android "TV sticks"?
Maybe I am missing the main point to begin with. I have been assuming the Pi set up would not require any net or wifi connectivity. If it does, than I have misguided myself from out of the gate. Don't understand your use of USP.... The only advantage to Pi over the above is not needing a net connection. If it does - well - that saves me a lot of time and money I guess - because it will not work as I intended. Ha. I was looking at a way to adding more mobile phone customers by going after the cord cutters. I want to be be able to cut the WHOLE cord and reply on the phone signal data only. So any internet connection cannot be used, or the cost is not as attractive.
