When you connect your device to a projector, you can share your screen with others for business or pleasure. Here are a few ways to do it. Projectors are the better option, though, as they normally project a much bigger screen size than a TV, making them ideal for media playback or data presentations.
The easiest method to connect an Android device to a projector is to use Google Chromecast. To do this, your projector must support HDMI connections.
Your Chromecast will then display the contents through the projector. With the right cable, you can connect your Android device to a projector that directly uses an HDMI cable.
Make sure the projector is set to the correct HDMI input.
If you use other wired methods, like MHL, you can power your device while connected. As mentioned above, it can also power your device while providing digital video and audio. Your Android device also has to support MHL.
Previously, Android officially supported Miracast but dropped it with Android 6 Marshmallow. Unless both devices specifically state they support Wi-Fi Direct or Miracast, the best way to see if it will connect is to use one of these standards to try it.
The best way to connect using Miracast is to use a third-party app, like Castto, to make the connection.
If you want to use Wi-Fi Direct, you can do this within Android directly. Tech Support 2 Answers Why is every game in black and white?

Hook up n64 to projector
The N64 South Park games get too much flack. What do I need?
Hooking up N64 to an Epson projector. I got an N64 with all my partners favourite games for Christmas and I tried to fire it up today so he can plug it in and play it Christmas morning without any problems. I connected the red/yellow/white cables to the back of the projector but nothing showed up there's an extra black input cable that. May 01, I've been unable to connect either my N64 or GC to my Optoma HD80 projector. I have dedicated S-video leads for each console which both work fine when connected to a Panasonic plasma. However, when either is connected directly to the S-video input of the projector the PJ detects no signal and there is no picture. The N64 will try to output i video on the composite cable. Check the projector can cope with a resolution lower than its native x You may have better luck with an s-video connection.

Can you plug it into a computer to verify? Have you also verified the Nintendo works?
Feb 17, Hi, I'm trying to connect a N64 to a Hp digital projector xb The projector has composite video input, audio input. Your projector should have a composite video input socket somewhere. It will probably be yellow just like the plug from your N If not, then you will have to get a composite to component video adaptor (or even a composite-to-VGA adaptor because your projector will certainly have a VGA input). May 13, I have a Nintendo 64 that I bought in Japan, and I want to hook it up to an Acer DLP projector. Right now I have the yellow RCA cable in the video input on the projector and the red and white into subwoofer/speak setup but I'm not getting any sound or video. I tried changing the source but I haven't had any success yet.

Oct 17, Some projector manufacturers offer their own Android apps that allow you to connect directly to the projector from your device via Wi-Fi. Apps like Panasonic Wireless Projector, Epson iProjection, and Projector Quick Connection are all examples of apps you could try, depending on the manufacturer of your projector.

Check the projector can cope with a resolution lower than its native x You may have better luck with an s-video connection. Can you please post a link for a compatible s video cable that I can use.
I would like to buy one. Also, what about the audio?
Will that not work if only the s video is plugged in? Any RCA end should work short or not.
