I am thinking of buying an older Chromecast dongle.

What I want to do is cast from my older iPad2 (Ios8.4.1) to my TV.

The question is....
Can I cast whatever is on the screen (IE wallpaper, video from a third party app, or whatever) to my TV, regardless of whether the app I am using has chromecast support? In particular, I am wanting to cast video and sound (overseas TV) from Safari.

Thanks

a sort of helpful reply here....

 

I only have used Android, buy for that you can cast the screen.

 

iOS is probably the same - sure someone can actually confirm.

With ipad you can only cast from chromecast supported apps. To mirror screen you airplay to appletv, which works really well.
