    YouTube - Casting from Android phone only works with ethernet not WiFi

    On 46PFL8008 with latest 0.51 firmware (UK)

    If the TV is connected via Ethernet, then when you use an Android phone, and use YouTube on the phone, a little symbol appears near the top right in YouTube on the phone (called the cast symbol). If you click it, the Philips TV appears as an option and you can then display the YouTube video directly onto the TV with a single click! It means you can find the video easily on your phone and beam or throw the video to the TV...great feature!

    However if the TV is connected via wireless, then the Philips TV does not show up as an option on the Android phone.

    I don't believe this is intentional. The TV seems to fail to "announce" that it supports casting for YouTube when working wirelessly

    Hi,

    from what we know, this function has completly disabled so far.
    However it is combined now in the share Option which is still available.
