IPTV is an alternative to traditional satellite and cable TV. IPTV allows you to watch TV channels and shows by streaming them over the Internet via Internet Protocol. You can install IPTV players directly on smart TVs such as Android TV, LG Smart TV and more. However, if your TV is not a smart TV and has an HDMI port, you can use Chromecast to stream IPTV to your TV. Let us discuss how to convert IPTV to Chromecast in this post.
Google Chromecast is a device that allows you to stream videos and movies to your TV using your cell phone or desktop computer. You need to connect Chromecast to your TV’s HDMI port and start streaming from your phone or computer. Some IPTV players support Chromecast and some do not. You need to choose the best IPTV player that also supports Chromecast.
There are two types of IPTV casting on Chromecast.
1-1 IPTV on Chromecast by Screen Mirroring
1-2 Using the IPTV player that supports Chromecast
** NOTE: IF YOU USE CHROMECAST, YOU NEED TO INSTALL GOOGLE HOME APP ON YOUR ANDROID DEVICE TO CONNECT TO THE DEVICE EASILY. **

Both methods will work well and you can choose the method that suits you. The first method displays everything that is played on the screen. If you minimize the IPTV player, it will also be projected on the TV. For example, if you receive a message, it will even be displayed. The main advantage of the first method is that you can install any IPTV application, which is the disadvantage of the second method. You need to install only the applications that support Chromecast in the second method. The main advantage of the second method is that you can start streaming the video and use your phone. Only the video will be projected on the screen.
