EasyCast OTA Setup - project your mobile phone/MID/Notebook to another big screen through WiFi connection

EasyCast OTA (same of AnyCast) is a special  device  to project your mobile phone/MID/Notebook to another  big screen through WiFi  connection under the popular standards like DLNA, Miracast, Airplay, and Air Mirroring.

Over-the-air programming (OTA) refers to various methods of distributing new software updates, configuration settings, and even updating encryption keys to devices like cellphones, set-top boxes or secure voice communication equipment (encrypted 2-way radios).

You can enhance your TV/Projector/Monitor which have HDMI input port, with more features like streaming video, websurfing, viewing photo, live camera, internet video and more to enjoy excellent multi-display sharing.   Just like a Smart TV!!

How to  Use EasyCast OTA:



DLNA MODE or Aiplay Mode

Switch EasyCast OTA dongle to DLNA mode by pressing "Fn" button on the side of the EasyCast OTA dongle device.


DLNA is an industrial standard which allows you to stream multimedia files through WiFi/LAN.

AirPlay you can stream music, photos, and videos to your Apple TV, or stream music to your AirPort Express or AirPlay-enabled speakers.

Your TV screen should be like this when on DLNA mode or Airplay Mode (Apple Device Screen Mirroring)
Tested working even you device do not support Miracasting (android 4.1)



1. Connect Through EZcast app
Enable your Mobile Device WiFi and open your EZcast app and then connect ..



For Apple Device : Connect your iOS device with EasyCast OTA dongle SSID then enable  Mirroring or Airplay ( Check your Manual )



2 . DLNA iMediaShare
Enjoy DLNA function, you can download the APK iMediaShare one of the famous DLNA APK on Google Play.


With DLNA iMediaShare you can Cast local content like Movie, Music,Photos , and even Facebook Photos, on your Big Screen TV.



3. EzChannel on DLNA Mode 
I like this feature, you can watch any Youtube Channel , Facebook Videos or watch your Favorite movie etc. You Mobile Device act like just Remote Control select  channel you want . You don't worry about your Mobile being draining  battery life because the Video are streaming from the Internet to your EasyCast device not from your Mobile Phone. You can open new Task while watching  movie.





Even you Lock your Mobile Screen the Video style playing...





Miracast Mode

Switch the EasyCast OTA dongle to Miracast mode by pressing "Fn" button on the side of the EasyCast OTA dongle device.

NOTE:  Some device do not support this feature ( kaya ako bumili ng bago CP Alcatel Flash 2 , on this mode you can also CAST a Video/ Movie on latest Windows 10 , Microsoft EDGE browser also support this)

Your TV screen should be like this when switch to Miracast Mode.


1. Enable WiFi on your mobile device, Go "Setting" menu Go to Display click Cast Screen or find the "Wireless Display", touch it and you will see the EasyCast OTA SSID .

Note:  Different  mobile phone have different operation methods, pls refer to your mobile device manual and find  "Wireless Display"  "WLAN direct"  or "Screen Mirroring" icon.



On my Alcatel Flash 2 Cast Screen is one of the option quick setup on notification menu.


2. Touch the EasyCast OTA SSID  and connect the mobile device with the EasyCast  OTA dongle.
And your mobile device is mirrored to big screen.



Enjoy playing games on the Big Screen...



Or watch movies from your mobile browser to Big Screen. ( But not Good Idea it will drain your battery and you mobile screen should not be interrupted.

Watching "A Second Chance"  papa Popoy and Basha  LOL



Additional Info :
Laptops or Netbook with Windows 8 or Windows 10 OS also support DLNA and  Miracast.

You can directly play any video from Windows PC or Laptop to your TV screen







Media Casting in Microsoft Edge: 
You can now use Microsoft Edge to cast video, picture, and audio content from your browser to any Miracast and DLNA enabled device on your network.
