Post subject: How to Stream Videos to TV Using VLC
|Have no idea how to stream videso to smart TV using VLC (www.brorsoft.com/tutorial/vlc-stream-video-to-smart-tv.html)? Check this tutorial to get tricks.
Step 1. Launch VLC on Windows and click on "Media" menu, then choose "Stream" option from the media menu.
Step 2. Now "Open media" popup window will open in front of you and now you can stream media from all available option. First please add files from the file tab which you want to stream. Click on "Add" button and add the files here. Now click on the "Capture Device" tab and Select "Desktop" in the front of "Capture Mode" option. After that, click on "Stream" button.
Step 3. Now it will display output window. The first list is the media file which you want to stream, click on "Next" to continue.
Step 4. Now in the next Windows "Destination" option is there. Here you have to select the destination where you want to stream your media. Select "HTTP" from here and then click on "Add" button. You can also check "Display Locally" option which will stream media on your laptop too so you can know media is playing perfectly on other devices. Click on the "Next" button now.
Step 5. Now you can customize HTTP setting. It is better to keep in in the default setting and click on "Next" button. To save network bandwidth you can keep transcoding to the lower quality.
Step 6. In this window you don't need to do any changes just click on the "Stream" button. If you were selected display locally option then media will start playing on your computer. Now your firewall will ask your permission if your firewall is enabled then just click on "Allow Access" button.
Step 7. Click on the "Media" menu and choose Open Network Stream…to connect to a stream.
Step 8. We are assuming that you have used HTTP. Now find out your IP address and enter address like IP.Address:8080. (ip.address:8080./)
Note: If there is custom path specified by you for the HTTP stream then you have to specify the custom path here. Enter the address like IP.Address:8080/path (ip.address:8080/path) in the address box. Finally click on "Play" button now.
Step 9. Now your video will start playing on your other devices.
VLC is open source software to play videos and it allows you to stream videos from VLC to TV on computer as well. VLC can play videos on your devices using your local home network or internet too. You can use VLC web interface as a remote control to control your playing videos from anywhere at your home. Keep in mind that you need a high speed internet connection to stream videos over internet. Without internet you can’t stream videos.
And if VLC can’t transcode your videos correctly like HEVC, you can turn to a more professional video app like Brorsoft Video Converter (www.brorsoft.com/video-converter/)(or Mac (www.brorsoft.com/video-converter-mac/)) to do batch conversion. It supports converting almost all of the video files MKV, AVI, H.264, MPEG-4, H.265, MOV, MPG, FLV, MTS, MXF, TiVo, VOB and more.
