Why Can’T I Cast My Chromebook to My Firestick?
If you’re having trouble casting from your Chromebook to your Fire Stick, there are a few things you can try. First, make sure that your Chromebook and Fire Stick are on the same Wi-Fi network. Then, try restarting both devices.
If that doesn’t work, try resetting your Fire Stick by holding down the back button and the right arrow button on your remote for 10 seconds. If none of these troubleshooting steps work, it’s possible that your Chromebook isn’t compatible with Miracast technology, which is required for screen mirroring.
How Do I Connect My Firestick to My Computer?
Assuming you would like a step-by-step guide on how to connect your FireStick to your computer:

How Do I Stream from My Chromebook to My Tv?
Assuming you would like to know how to mirror your Chromebook display on a TV: There are a few different ways that you can go about streaming from your Chromebook to your TV. The first option is to use an HDMI cable.
Simply connect one end of the HDMI cable into your Chromebook, and plug the other end into the HDMI port on your TV. Once it is plugged in, your TV should automatically switch to displaying whatever is on your Chromebook screen. If it doesn’t, you may need to change the input source on your TV.
Another way to stream from your Chromebook to a TV is by using a Chromecast device. First, make sure that both your Chromebook and Chromecast are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, open the Chrome browser on your Chromebook and click the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen to open the menu.
From there, hover over “More tools” and select “Cast”. A pop-up window will appear with a list of available devices; select your Chromecast from this list. Once it connects, anything that you do in the Chrome browser window will be displayed on your TV via the Chromecast device.
You can even use this method to play video or audio files from websites like YouTube or Spotify directly on your television. One final way to stream content from a Chromebook to a TV is by using Miracast technology (wireless display). This method does not require any cables; instead, it uses Wi-Fi Direct signals to establish a connection between devices.
In order for Miracast streaming to work, both your Chromebook and television must support it (not all models do). To check if yours does, open Chrome and type “chrome://flags/#enable-miracast” into the address bar; if Miracast is enabled by default, you’ll see “(enabled)” next to its listing in the drop-down menu under “Enable wireless display”. If not, click the drop-down menu and select “Enabled”, then restart Chrome when prompted.
Now that Miracast is enabled on both devices, return to the Chrome browser and type “chrome://devices/” into the address bar. Under “Available Devices”, you should see your TV listed; click to connect wirelessly. (If you don’t see It listed here, make sure It’s turned on and within range of your Chromebook.)
