What is the Best Way to watch movies from my Tablet onto my PC (more info)
Helo, Just to start off, I'm NOT an amatuer when it comes to these devices, im more of an intermediate , but im no way an expert. I know how to use tablets and such, I happen to OWN a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, its model is called 10.1. Its a very nice tablet, now I did what most intelligent people would do, is go to the Computer store, and ask what is required to connect this to my TV, even though this is the most simplest thing to do, not all sales agents are trained equal so my experience was touchy, one guy wanted to sell me a MHTL cable do hickey thing a ma bob, which is suppose to connect to the usb charging port of my tablet and then it would allow me to connect an HDMI cable so i can watch what ever is on my tablet onto my Hi Definition Television Screen. WRONG. The sales guy was not educated, was making assumption that it would work on my tablet, me being the guy I am never jump ahead and buy things without first doing my homework, said i'll think about it to the guy, went home and researched that my tablet 10.1 does not support the so called mhtl cable connector, so it would be a paper wait, and possibly a waste of money cus no refunds, even if the store associate made a mistake.
There goes that idea, pffft, out the door
Now i did some research on my own and i found out about a thingy called Samsung All Share Cast Dongle and another thing called Google Crome.
I am now caught between the two, supposedly the AllShare Cast dongle only works with samsung tablets but the Google crome hdmi stick works with every tablets out there not just google androids.
I also dont want to have to deal with unsupported, i just want to plug it in and have it work, i heard the google crome cast has incompatibilities with certain apps? im looking to stream my Crave TV, TMN Go, and Net Flicks from my Tablet onto my TV but i would not mind it being wireless, if peopel come over i dont want to have cables all over the floor for them to trip over.
The All Cast Share is 99 bucks, and is hard to find, most stores are sold out or sell it online only, but the Crome Cast is 35 bucks, ive seen it on sale for $25 for boxing day, the crome cast is smaller and gets power from the usb port on my flat screen tv but the all share cast dongle gets power from my android wall charger so i cant power both at the same time and the cable may not reach where i need it to.
well, what do u think?
