Check How to Chromecast Windows Media Player

Did you know that there is an easy, wireless way to cast local media files from your Windows PC to your TV? You do not need to install or buy any new software. Windows Media Player (WMP), the default media player on Windows OS computers, allows you to stream content from your computer to your TV (Chromecast). If you are a Windows user, you know that WMP is the most convenient way to access images, videos and audio files. You can also use WMP to organize local files, burn CDs, and sync with mobile devices.

Windows Media Player in Windows 10 has a built-in streaming feature that allows you to stream content to another Bluetooth or wireless device. However, if you don’t have a smart TV, you’ll need to use Google Chrome and a Chromecast device to cast your PC screen to your TV. Most users rely on Google Chromecast devices to turn their standard TV into a smart TV and access streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube.

Few people know that you can also use it to transfer videos, movies, audio files and photos directly from your PC hard drive to your TV. With Windows Media Player 12, you can stream media stored on your Windows PC directly to your Smart TV without cables or additional hardware. All you need for this easy tutorial is a good WiFi connection.
