Wired second display for Android?

Postby jaycweber » Wed Sep 05, 2018 11:54 am

Hi, my suggestion is to support a wired second display in the Android version (like in the Win/Mac versions), in addition to chromecast. I am interested in this because I'm using a Chromebook with an HDMI port, would be much simpler than using chromecast.

This is something I would love to add when possible, but it will take additional research, as it was not possible at the time of the app's release. I'm not sure what additional hardware allowances ChromeOS has over AndroidOS, but it would probably at least require splitting Chrome into it's own release build separate from Android (where as now they're the same build).

The tricky part is not just sending video out, so much as sending the curated view (Player's View) out as a separate feed.

Either way, I'll be sure to add it to the list of requested features!
