Re: chromecast help streaming / use
Hi Nath, welcome to the forums! No need to apologize for anything. You actually type better than some of the others on here.
Anyway, I'll try to help, but my experience is limited.
Yes, using Chrome (browser) will let you cast a tab on to your big screen.
As far as I know, windows media player cannot cast. I don't know what formats you're playing, but if it's one that Chrome itself can handle, just play & cast it through there.
Also, viewing your photos through Chrome will allow you to cast them.
Basically, since Chrome can handle many different formats, you can get a lot up on your big screen with your Chromecast.
Hopefully I've helped some & that others with more experience will chime in & give you some more tips.
Let us know how it all works out for you.
