May I ask how does my Android phone stream its content to a "Chromecast with Google TV" when playing a 4K video? A decoded 4K 60 fps video on my cell phone has a lot of data to stream to a TV through Chromecast. Can Chromecast use WIFI to stream from my cell phone ? Can the WIFI (802.11ac) stream 6 Giga bit per sec ?
3840 pixel width x 2160 pixel height x 60 fps x 12 number of bits per pixel = 6 Giga bit per sec.
Hey there swong10,
If you want the detailed specifications of the different protocols and media types, I would recommend that you check out this Google Cast documentation. Specifically, the sections on Supported Media and Streaming Protocols. They vary a bit a depending on what Chromecast device you use.
I hope that helps, and let me know if you had any more questions.
