Quest: Screen casting not working (Samsung Galaxy S9 / Nvidia Shield)

spyro
Level 3

Wasn't successful getting this to work. Headset is connected to the app, all green. TV, Smartphone and Quest are all connected to the same WiFi.

First, I tried to cast to my Nvidia Shield (nothing happened). According to the app there should be some sort of confirmation screen in the headset, which isn't the case.

Same when trying to cast to the phone itself (Samsung Galaxy S9, Android Pie).

So I tried it the other way around and started sharing from inside the headset. Same thing, nothing happens on the phone. Except one time, where I just got a black screen.

Did this work for anyone?

BTW: Would be great if you could alternatively stream directly to the phone (WiFi Direct). So you could share someone's experience if you are not at home. Currently, it's not possible to assist someone without being connected to an external WiFi.

Happens on my quest and Huawei P30. I am guessing that Facebook and Huawei are not going to sort this out. Especially after Trumps latest block on Huewai phones.

Any update, or someone who found more info on this?
Im on a Huawei P20 Pro - casting starts and works for around 4 seconds then freezes.
 
First i were worried that my Quest were faulty, but after reading some of the posts it seams like it is not broken atleast :confused:

It must definitely be some problem with Android. Tried it with an iPhone 7 in the same network and it worked (quality and framerate was not good, though).

EDIT: It's Blokada (Ad-Blocker VPN!). Casting works when deactivating it. Putting the Oculus App on the Whitelist had no effect!

Hi All,

I have managed to cast to S9+ and android tablet without issues.
The Chromecast would not connect initially but I then managed it successfully.
For 2 days now I am now unable to connect again to the Chromecast, no option to connect, only phone  😕

I too was unable to cast to my Shield.  I had no trouble seeing the "Do you want to allow casting?" request in the headset, but after selecting "Allow", nothing happens and an error pops on the phone.  I opened a ticket.

I haven't tried casting to my phone.


I can cast to the Shield without problems. Tried it with the You Tube VR App on the Quest.
