Customer Guide: How to Screencast

Casting from a device onto the Vibe board can happen in several different ways, both wirelessly and via HDMI cable.

Note: To cast wirelessly, you must be on the same WiFi network at your Vibe device.


  1. EShare (Recommended)


    The advantage of using eShare is that you can touchback, which means you can control the screen on the Vibe board directly. Also makes your casting screen more stable.
    You can cast from Mac, Windows, Android or Ubuntu devices using the EShare app.

  2. Airplay:


    If you have Airplay capability on your devices, you can use that to connect wirelessly to the Vibe board.  

  3. Vibe Screencast:

    a. Visit vibe.run using Chrome or Firefox.
    b. Once you go to cast.vibe.us, you might be prompted to install the Vibe Cast chrome extension in the app store in order to select your device and connect.

     

    c. See the detected device list, and find yours to screencast.

    e. If you can’t find the device directly in the list, type your device‘s name then enter to cast.

    f. After you click the cast, you'll see the window where you can choose which screen you want to share.

  4. Chrome cast:

    There are a few different ways to use a Chromecast with a PC. All the approaches involve using the Google Chrome web browser.

    By using Chrome, you can either stream content from a single tab, your entire desktop or stream content from a file on your PC.

     

    Please follow these steps for instructions:

    1. Open Google Chrome.
    2. Go to More (three vertical dots) > Cast.



    3. Click on Sources to cast either a file, a tab, or your entire screen.

    4. Choose your Vibe board to Chromecast.
    5. Leave Chrome running for the duration of the casting process.
