How to Chromecast footage from your Lenovo Mirage Solo

Gaming in virtual reality has a giant draw: total isolation. With the headset covering your eyes and some big headphones cutting off any outside noise, you can be completely immersed in your game. This also means that no one else can watch you play your game, since you're not going to squeeze another person into the headset while you're wearing it. Fortunately, it's really easy to share your game footage.

Here's how to Chromecast footage from your Lenovo Mirage Solo!

Choosing the right Chromecast

Not all Chromecasts are created equal, with the main difference being that the more expensive model has the internal guts to handle 4K HDR movies. That requires more processing power than 1080p footage, which is why two different models exist in the first place. What does this have to do with your Mirage Solo? Well, the Chromecast Ultra's extra power also comes in handy when transmitting footage from your headset to the TV. If you're going to frequently have friends over for VR game parties, the extra money for the Chromecast Ultra will be well worth it.
