I need help please casting photos and videos from my Samsung A12 to my Samsung TV without using a Chromecast. I can connect the phone to my TV using WiFi Direct. I can cast YouTube videos by clicking the cast icon within the Youtube app. But there does not appear to be a way to cast other videos and pictures from my phone to the TV.

The older Samsung "Smart View" app (now discontinued) works fine on my Samsung J7 (2016) and the TV but is not compatible with my new Samsung A12 and keeps crashing. The Samsung "Smart Things" app is compatible with my A12 but is unable to cast to older Samsung TV's.

If YouTube can cast from the Samsung A12 to the TV then there must be a way to show other videos and pictures using the right software.

Your advice would be appreciated.

Kind regards
Chris

Thank you so much. AllCast did just the trick and works great for playing downloaded videos and photos on my Samsung TV. I can't see any screen mirror option though. Do you know if it can also support screen mirroring or suggest any other app that can screen mirror?

I had previously tried several other apps that I had to uninstall because either they didn't work or the ads were too obtrusive.

Thanks again for your help.

Kind regards
Chris
