I am trying to screencast a browser page from my Debian 11 desktop to a Roku TV so I can display a map for my players (I host a D&D campaign every month). I can do this from my phone (a Samsung S21) with ease, but it is much easier to manipulate the map on a desktop. HDMI also works, but, then…cords…
If possible, I’d like to cast the screen over the air. In Chrome, when I try to cast the page (a web app called Owlbear Rodeo), the TV shows up, but I get a message that casting is only available on “certain video sites.” I’ve tried switching back from Wayland to X11 and using Alfacast and Deskcreen, which did not work (Alfacast needs an app to be installed on the TV, and Deskcreen requires a browser that can go to an IP address). Wondering if anyone has had any success with this kind of situation. Sounds like a long shot, but I thought I would ask!
Oh wow, I did not know that VLC player could do something like that – awesome! I will try it out and let you know how it goes
Yes, the casting to a TV is an idea I stole from someone else. You place the TV screen side up on a table (some people actually build custom tables for this), and then your miniatures stand on top of the screen, on top of your map.
