Why can't I stream from my mobile phone to my Samsung 4K TV?

Google Chromecast

Episode 1247

Mark from Covina, CA

Mark bought a Samsung 4K Curved TV and it won't find his phone unless he unplugs it. Leo says that Samsung's DLNA is notoriously terrible. It stops, drops, and loses connections. Leo's suggestion as an alternative is Google Chromecast. It works perfectly because the hardware connection from the Chromecast is straight into the TV.
