    Tech question...

    How does one stream popcorn wirelessly from a comp to a tv?

    I'm sure this can be accomplished, just not sure how to go about it. Right now I have an second monitor, 22 inches, which works fine enough. But it would probably be better to send the signal to the 42 inch tv.

    By far the easiest (and fairly cheap) would be Chromecast:

    Sure software for a PC can do it as well, but the requirements, compatibilities, stability etc. can make you put a fist through the PC.

    Actually, if you TV supports DLNA, and I assume you mean Popcorn Time, doesn't it list your TV in the watch now drop down?

    A smart TV solves all.
    Been watching Popcorn time content for a couple of weeks now and it streams flawlessly to the Samsung smart screen via a wireless router.

    I have a smart TV, but unfortunately the owner isn't so smart with tech stuff. Did you just download the app to your TV or do you have to somehow send it from your PC to your TV? Thanks.

    Around the 0:50 mark it shows where you can select the TV (if supported).

    I do have a PS3 hooked up to my Samsung Tv... like TNL though, I am not exactly technologically gifted. Not stupid, I just missed all the new gadgets due to being in some warzone somewhere. Now I'm behind the times and saddly have to seek guidance when doing anything like this.

    Assuming your tv and computer have a hdmi connection just buy a cable and plug the two of them together. The FN+F8 key will redirect the video to your tv.

    Having any Dlna device plugged into the tv should give you a play to option in popcorn time..

    Blown away by how good that app is, and how cleverly they have separated the app from sharing the content..

    If they built acestreams into it too.. For live tv.. It would be a one app media solution.

    Just installed and set it up in about two minutes and straight away streaming flawlessly to an Asus O'Play Media Box.
