A few months ago, we moved Mattermark into a shiny new office. Today, I was using the quiet time before the new year to setup some TVs we mounted in order to display different teams’ metrics. I wanted to do a wireless solution, so I bought three Chromecasts (one for each TV). I plugged them in, got them setup, and then was horrified when it seemed as though I had to get three different computers to control the three Chromecasts. If you Google around, you won’t find a solution, but I found a way to cast different browser windows to multiple TVs from one computer. Here’s how you do it:
- Go to your settings in Chrome
- Add a new user for each different TV you want to cast to (screenshot)
- Install the Chromecast Extension for each of those browser windows
- Click the Chromecast Icon in the top right corner of Chrome and cast your browser to a different Chromecast for each different screen you want to display
- You’re all set!
