    Hello frineds,
    First of all, please forgive me for my imperfect English (It's not my mother-tongue).

    I was looking for information on the web, but have not received answers to some questions and I would like to get some of your help, please:

    I have a Samsung Tab 3 10.1" (model 5210) tablet and a Sharp TV (not a smartTV) with USB and HDMI inputs.
    I would like to watch movies I downloaded to my tablet - on the TV screen and looking for a good way to do it (preferably wireless). I need a way to mirror my tablet on TV, to be specific.

    1. Is there any possibility at all? If so:
    2. Does ChromeCast doing the work? (Again, we're discussing about downloaded video files from the web, not watching YouTube and similar)
    3. If ChromeCast can't do it, is there a wireless device that does this? I heard about "EZcast", what do you think about it? I'd be happy to have your recommendation.
    4. If there's no wireless option -what kind of cable will I have to connect the the TV?
    5. Other things that I should know? (Video-Audio sync... etc)

    Thanks in advance,

    Welcome to Android Central! The Tab 3 10.1 appears to be compatible with MHL adapters, so that's probably your best bet: Which MHL adapter does my Samsung Galaxy need?

    B. Diddy,

    Thank you for your reply.
    I understand you are recommending this cable.
    I prefer a wireless solution if possible. Do you know one?

    In that case, get a Chromecast and use AllCast (if the video player you're using doesn't have casting ability).

    Doesn't AllCast require smartTV?

    As the app description says, AllCast can cast to the following:

    * Chromecast
    * Amazon Fire TV
    * Apple TV
    * Xbox 360, Xbox One
    * Roku
    * WDTV
    * Samsung, Sony and Panasonic Smart TVs
    * Other DLNA Renderers

    Chromecast is very cheap and very useful, so that's worth getting. Be aware that the free version of AllCast is only a trial, and lets you view something for a few minutes. The full version if $4.99.

    Chromecast is actually an Android computer, so the TV only needs an HDMI input. The Chromecast device does all the "smart" part. (I've used them with "dumb" TVs - they work. (They do take up to about half an hour to download their updates the first time you use them.)
