First and foremost, for the optimal casting experience, we recommend using our Barstool Sports mobile app. Just use one of the iOS or Android apps on the same WiFi network as your Chromecast device and tap the “Chromecast” button in the top right of your apps video player. Select your Chromecast or TV with Chromecast built-in from the list.
If you prefer to cast from your computer, open Chrome and either click the Cast icon on the video menu bar or click on the menu button on the top right (three vertical lines or dots) and tap Cast. If you don’t see your Chromecast, make sure that your device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast. If you are using a PC or laptop, you'll need to install the Chromecast extension through your Chrome web browser.
Casting via built-in mobile browsers is not supported at this time.
If you have the app or extension installed, and you are signed in, but you still can't cast videos, power-cycle your Chromecast by following these steps:
- Remove the Chromecast device from the HDMI slot.
- Unplug the USB cable or power cable (depending on how the device is powered up).
- Reconnect the Chromecast and try again.
