Cast MM from RPi to Chromecast?
I’m setting up MM now on a Raspberry Pi4 to show calendars etc on a screen on my kitchen wall. But I dont have the possibility to connect a HDMI-cable from my Pi to the place I want to install the screen. Is it possible to cast everything from the Pi to a Chromecast at the screen? So I can have a wireless transmission of the signals?
@mosemann yes, if you use chromium browser you can cast from pi.
but, you have to use the chromium menu to turn on cast, and that turns on the titlebar and tab bar… don’t know how to turn them off
u can also view from some other pc, and use chrome there to cast… same problem tho,.
i don’t see any chrome parms to cast at startup…
now… u could mount the pi behind the tv and connect via hdmi…
I do this on my hall mirror… actually now using a small chromebox.
@sdetweil Thank you for a quick and good answer!
I know I can hide the Pi behand the screen, but was hoping to find another solution. I tested the casting from the browser, and it actually looks good, no extra bars are showing, as long as I cast the whole screen. But if the Pi restarts, I guess I have to redo the casting, but hopefully it won’t happen to often…
