screen cast and HPS streaming

Dear friends, I'm stuck with TCL Roku TV which I bought 2 months back. This is my first post here.
Basically I'm trying to cast my android screen, and trying to do HLS streaming on TV. The default roku software in TV doesn't have the feature of screen cast. After searching posts and forums, losing the hopes and thinking Chromecast is only solution for this.
Any help getting HLS stream and screen cast will be highly appreciated (TV is HDTV with dlna capabilities)

Re: screen cast and HPS streaming

if you have an HLS stream url, go into the simplevideoplayer example, uncomment the big buck bunny HLS example in appMain.brs

    ' Big Buck Bunny test stream from Wowza
urls = ["http://..."]
qualities = ["HD"]
streamformat = "hls"
'title = "Big Buck Bunny"
srt=""



replace the url between the brackets and quotes with your url, add a line: srt="" save the file, zip, side load to your Roku and see if that works.

Thanks for your reply. This is what I did, changed as you mentioned:

' Big Buck Bunny test stream from Wowza
urls = ["http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/NTV-Public-IPS.m3u8 "]
qualities = [“HD"]
streamformat = "hls"
'title = "Big Buck Bunny"
srt=""

Now the error is "Install Failure: No manifest. Invalid package." where did I do wrong :?:

Go into your project to the folder with the manifest file, source and images folders, select all, right-click and create the zip file there, then side-load the zip file.
