    Hey there...has anyone tried using chromecast and an android device to cast the vision video to a tv? I don't have chromecast or I would test it myself...trying to find a way to get the video on multiple devices...wirelessly....

    never tried it, but i have a chromecast we use occasionally

    recently we used chromecast to show images on our tv while playing
    a mystery/clue game on the phone. things worked well for the most part
    but there were glitches where the tv screen would lock up and I had to restart
    the chromecast feed. i can't say how the phantom would workl

    If the chromecast uses Wifi, then you cannot mirror and communicate with phantom and TV at the same time.

    It does, and you're correct. Everything would have to be on the same wifi network for it to work, which as we all know by now is not possible.
