Hi folks, when I cast via cellphone to my TV, it doesn't fill up the TV, only playing back on a tiny portion of my TV. How do I fullscreen it?

most likely you are doing mirroring from handphone to tv. don't use mirroring if you are watching video.

the better way is chromecast or dlan cast. you can do it only if apps have this feature and your android box has chromecast or dlan cast receiver.

if you do it right, you can turn off your phone after casting, and you can continue watching video on tv.

Either Transocks 穿梭 or SpeedIn 快帆 can be used.

Paid version SpeedIn is cheaper.

More info here :

Just for YouKu you can pay for the VIP and then no need VPN, at least for now. Please refer to the above thread, you need to pay for the 酷喵影视 VIP if you want to use the TV version.
Thanks, I tried both, but free version speed is not enough for iqiyi...

Understand VIP for youku can run without VPN, but not all show youku have..

I don't mind paying more for a more stable vpn (if transsock is better than SpeedIn )

SpeedIn free line is not good.

You can try SpeedIn VIP line for 30minutes by checking in from the Android version. The VIP lines are faster. I have tried it for a short while and it is good for iQiYi free account (up to 720p for the free account). Now I only use Youku so I seldom try the two VPN.

I have no experiences with Transocks Pro version.

You can also try China Tunnel VPN. I tried it previously and it was pretty good.

If you really need Netflix 4k and Dolby Atmos, firstly check your LG OLED TV supports it or not. If not Apple TV 4k is the only choice among the streaming TV boxes.

If you only need Netflix 4k but do not need Dolby Atmos, then you can look at Mi Box S or Nvidia Shield TV.

Take note Nvidia Shield TV supports Dolby Atmos but somehow Netflix on Nvidia Shield TV does not.

Mi Box S is the latest global version.
https://www.mi.com/us/mi-box-s/

You can buy it from Lazada, Shopee or Qoo10 at around S$70-S$80.

BTW, usually your LG TV should support YouTube. Supposedly 4K also.

For twitch, it is said that LG has an app called Game Streams for WebOS.
