iPad or laptop to tv

Tue May 15, 2018 8:17 am

[size=120]I have a subscription to exercise videos that I access through a browser on either my iPad or Windows 10 laptop.  Is it possible to mirror or cast these videos wirelessly to my TV through Roku Premiere+?[/size]

While Roku does support screen mirroring, I've only done it successfully from an Android phone. It can be done with Windows 10, but has very stringent hardware requirements (not Roku requirements, but Mirrorcast) to make it work. Many people that have made it work later report it is hit or miss. For iOS devices, there are supposed to be some apps that work, but I've never tried any. 

If your laptop has an HDMI out, it would be much easier to just connect it straight to the TV.

I use iWebTV (which is available in the Roku Channel Store and the app for which is available in the Apple App Store) to watch videos using my iPhone for which their is a URL (that is, web address). I don't know if that would work for your particular videos, but it well might.
