No Chrome­cast? No prob­lem, at least af­ter Win­dows

10’s Novem­ber up­date, which en­abled the Edge browser to cast me­dia to Mira­cast- or DLNA-equipped de­vices with just a few clicks. Be­ware that the im­ple­men­ta­tion has some quirks, and won’t work with DRM-pro­tected streams such as Net­flix. YouTube works just fine, though.

To beam a video to your TV, open it in Edge, then click on the three hor­i­zon­tal dots in the up­per-right cor­ner of the browser. A drop-down menu ap­pears; click Cast me­dia to de­vice. Af­ter a mo­ment, a black win­dow with the names of all nearby Mira­cast/DLNA de­vices will ap­pear. Sim­ply choose the one you want and af­ter a few min­utes, it should be­gin to play.
