now one of the biggest disappointments
with the 4k firestick when I first received there was when I noticed that
Amazon decided to remove the mirrorcast feature now previously when I had the
second generation first day I could pick up my Android phone
select the cost option see my first akin the list and anything that would be on
my android screen I could now see it on the big screen so if wanted to do some
gaming on the big screen or going to cost a video that was playing on my
phone to the big screen I could easily do that before ever reason Amazon
decided to remove that from the 4k fire stake so how do we get it back well in
this video today let me show you exactly what you need to do to bring the
screaming feature back onto your 4k fire stick so not only can you cost from your
Android phone but you can also cause things from your computer so if you have
a laptop for example you can press a single button on that and anything from
your laptop screen will now be beamed onto your TV so with all of that okay so
to get this feature working back on your 4k firestick you need to ensure that
your device is running the latest 6.2 dot sixth or three firmware so how do we
do that well if you go to your settings go into
your MiFi TV going to about and here we can see where it says check for updates
we can confirm that I’m actually running version 6 2.6 dot 3 now if your device
is not running that version click on check for updates this should then do
the update onto your device and should then get the latest version once you
have the latest version there’s two different methods of bringing up the
screen mirroring the first one just like before is if you hold on the home button
on your remote we can see we get the meringue option there if you don’t want
to do like that you can also go over to your settings go into your display in
sounds and we can see we have now the option here enable display mirroring so
let’s see that in action so let’s click on that again here we can see that the
Amazon 4 K 4 stick is now ready to accept any request from an Android phone
or even from a Windows a computer so let’s try the Android phone first
so my Android phone for going to my settings then go into more we can see I
have option for wireless display let’s click on that now let’s turn this option
on and there we can see that the five TV
has now come up so let’s click on that now and then within five four three two
two one is that going to there we go so we can see now we are now mirroring my
screen directly on to the fight TV that’s working absolutely fine so right
now do anything on my phone we can see that’s now instantly reflected on there
so we can definitely see that the mirror cost is working on the big screen in
fact let’s try a quick game just to show you what the performance is like I mean
obviously there is going to be a little bit of lag because it is doing this over
the air but you know for general browsing or if you wanna cost your
photos or view photos or view videos it works very very well in fact let me just
quickly try recording games on here let’s try this golf game is click on
classic do the first one okay so I wanna play against five other players let’s
see if this works okay we got the five competitors and
let’s let’s do this okay okay that’s not enough power a bit more power watts too
much power but we can see guys in terms of lag it’s not too bad in its it’s
definitely playable let me skip this in and the last one there you go hole in
five and we see us working absolutely fine guys so let’s close this down so
this was the thing we could easily do before which was how you can easy cost
your Android device onto your fire TV but what if I told you you can also do
this on a laptop so let’s say for example you have a Windows 10 laptop or
even if you have a Windows 10 desktop you can also use the costing feature the
wireless display feature built into windows 2 again cost onto your 4k
firestick so let’s try that now okay so here we can see my Windows 10 a laptop
so now let’s again select enable display mirroring I guess again the 4k firestick
is now waiting for something to connect so what are we doing windows so if I
just bring up the windows display settings so if you just do a right-click
on the desktop and SEC display settings this shows you your current resolution
and your brightness if you scroll down we can see we have an option here for
connect to wireless displays let’s click on that now and we can see
here that the four k5 stick is now popped up so let me click on that now
and again within five four three two one zero now it does take like maybe eight or
nine seconds to connect but I’m pretty confident this is going to work so and
there we have it guys we’ve now connected to our fire stick over-the-air
from my laptop now what does this give me
well for example now I can start dragging windows onto my fire stick so
you know if you don’t have an extra monitor when you’re working or of course
if I want to open up a tab like for example in my browser I can open up the
tab here then drag it to my secondary screen now so effectively I have a
second screen to work with so let’s see if I’m doing some work and I want to
start watching some YouTube videos I can launch YouTube over here
now can I just drag this window onto my fire sticks just to give you that extra
screen real estate or just to give you like an actual monitor to work with you
can now cost your Windows 10 desktop onto your fire stake and do all the
stuff you want you to do before now you could be watching some YouTube videos or
you can be watching the latest movie trailers you could be reading the news
and all this stuff is happening on my computer on wirelessly beaming it onto
my 4k fire stake using the now fixed or now returned miracles feature so let me
quickly just interrupt this presentation and let’s pick the winner for the March

    If any of you are here because you want to stream from your PC's hard drive to a television in the other room that has the new fire tv 4K plugged into it, guess what?

    You are absolutely shit out of luck. The "enable screen mirroring" option that every single tutorial video seems to have right there in "settings" was only with the older version, and they got rid of it for the new 4K edition. You will have to buy an older version Chromecast or Fire Stick if you want this to happen.

    I have tried to work around it, but there is just no way. I don't know why Amazon did this, because many people just want to use this fire TV stick to stream movies from their computers to a television.

    This was a dealbreaker for me and I returned it, Amazon can suck my prostate out of my asshole.

    Hollywood proves their double standard in this sketch. As long as you are a liberal and/or Jew as is Goodman, you can make fun of anything without your career being ended.
