>>> MIRACAST vs. VIDEO & TV CAST
If you think Miracast screen mirroring works better for video casting, please consider the advantages of Video & TV Cast:
MULTI-TASKING: You can close the app while casting! Your phone can even be shut down. So don’t worry, get your beer from the fridge while leaving your phone in your pocket. Or make a phone call, text message or prepare the next video in the browser while casting.
FULL HD: Casting in Full HD is possible even on Android devices with low screen resolution. Miracast is restricted to the resolution of your Android device.
LESS WIFI-USAGE: Because with Video & TV Cast only the LG TV loads the video during casting. When using Miracast all videos are routed through your phone.
DEVICE SUPPORT: Video & TV Cast works on all devices running Android 2.3 or higher. Miracast does not.
