Trying to set up my tv to use chromecast

So I have a Vizio TV that has chromecast built in and Im trying to cast a YouTube video on there. Ive tried going on settings and tried to add another device on there, but all it does is go back to the same menu over and over again. Any suggestions?

Hi CstarZ24,

 

When using Chromecast-enabled devices, you shouldn't need to "add" a device or do any setup. If the device you are casting from (such as a laptop, your phone, or a tablet) is connected to the same WiFi network as your TV, they should automatically see one another. One thing to keep in mind is that some content does not allow casting or certain apps or websites may block the ability to cast. You also choose to cast from the device providing the content, not on your TV.

Does that clear things up for you a bit? If you're still having questions or something still isn't working right, let me know.

 

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi everyone,

Just one quick final check in here since activity has slowed down. We'll be locking the thread in the next 24 hours, but if you still need help, I would be happy to keep it open. If there's more we can do, just let me know.
