Play My Video on a Television or Projector

You have several options to play your Animoto video on a big screen! You can use your computer’s HDMI port, cast it, or play it back with a USB flash drive. 

Using an HDMI cable

An HDMI cable will mirror your screen on the screen you want to play it on. All you need to do is turn your screen to the HDMI input channel, and connect the other end to your computer and you’re set! The same method also works on a projector. 

Casting your Video in Chrome

Google Chrome has a built in ability to cast your browser to your television screen. To cast your video, make sure that your computer is connected to the same WiFi as the television. Click the 3 vertical dots to open the Chrome menu and select Cast. Choose your television, and now you can display your video on the big screen! 

Using a USB flash drive

A USB flash drive is a great way to transport a hard copy of your video! Plug in your USB drive and set the television’s source as USB via your remote. Once USB is selected, choose the video that you want to play back. 


If you have any questions about compatibility with your devices, you’re always welcome to reach out to the Animoto Customer team!
