Connect Samsung All-share Cast to PC (W7 or W8)

by alexander_nesbitt / May 18, 2013 7:47 AM PDT

Hi All,

I have a Samung Allshare Cast that I use to watch films from my Galaxy s3 on my TV. Is there a way to connect a PC to the allshare cast?

I have installed the 'Allshare' software on my PC but it doesn't pick it up. I do not fully understand how the dongle connects to my S3 but I assume it uses WIFI direct.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks!

Hi alexander_nesbitt,

Thanks for your question! This feature is only available on a few phones, TVs, home theaters, and Blu-ray players. I don't believe it's even available on Samsung laptops just yet. I won't rule this out as a future possibility, but at this time, it's not possible to use Allshare Cast in this manner.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
