I apologise in advance if this is not in the right forum, but I thought this looked the most logical forum for it to be in

 

We have Chromecast connected to our Marantz amp receiver and use our mackbook pro (which has google chrome) to cast / stream things to our TV and we also have an I-pad with Chromecast on it - but we cannot cast from the I-pad to the Chromecast / TV because their is no 'menu' bar at the top of the page on chrome on the I-pad.

 

has the menu bar just disappeared or something on the I-pads chrome and we can get it back easily, or is it something more involved?

 

if anyone knows what I need do to get the I-pad casting to the TV - it would be much appreciated

You have to play the video through Chrome, it has no app? (On the iPad)

I think you need to run the "Chrome Home App" on your phone to set up your Chromecast device.

 

 

 

Well at least that's what I have had to do to my Android phone to enable Spark Sport to play on my TV 😃

What are you trying to play?

 

On the iPad, it has to be through an App that supports Casting, and it you will see the cast icon in the same place you'd normally see the AirPlay icon.

Well done, you are up to speed quick!

 

Yes, install Chrome somewhere (for CC setup), login, add the cast extension, and configure the CC with wifi details,  room description and any settings. When you then cast from Chrome or use a cast enabled app, it will ask for the room you want and it will cast to that particular CC unit

There's a couple of things mentioned here which may confuse people.

 

Chrome - On IOs this is a separate app.  This may support casting if you go to a site that allows for casting (youtube for example).  Unsure if you can also do this in safari...I've not tried it.

 

Casting enabled IOS apps - eg youtube, vimeo, netflix, plex, spark sport.

 

Google Home App - this allows you to configure a chromecast...and also gives you some control to pause/play the chromecast that is already running a streeam (rather than re-enter the app - which can sometimes be problematic)
