So the guy in pc world was blabbing on about miracast when I was buying a new blu ray player, I was wanting out of the shop as fast as I could move before they tried to sell me a mobile phone contract, 60 buck blu ray player under the arm and out the door.
I’ve now been messing about with it and miracast is totally the best thing I’ve ever seen.
So what it does, my blu ray player is connected to my wifi network, as is my phone.
I then visit youtube in my phone and and it asks if I’d like to watch it on my tv, and the first time I’m thinking this is never going to work

We’ve got the first couple of rows in place for the Boyd Digital Auditorium and should hopefully have it completed next week. We originally planed for 40 odd seats but brought that down to 30.

I want this when I grow up, I’ll be adding this to my Santa list, good luck getting it down the chimney
right so, this new thing in Japan, TwitCasting, is essentially allowing people to live stream video on their twitter and facebook accounts, I struggle to actually find anything decent on my Facebook these days. I can only wonder what sort of live video Martin Morel could produce when bored at work or sitting in the toilet.
On you go Martin, prove me wrong¬†http://en.twitcasting.tv/
