    Not really... Those cheap dongles have a lot of problems, the major problem is the non-stability of the connection between the device and the dongle.
    Miracast (EZ Cast) isn't cheap one, I bought it from Malaysia for about $ 50,00. It's pretty more expensive than the Chromecast, but it's very useful as it plays offline videos/Music/Photos, you can connect it through DLNA... At first the connection wasn't stable enough, but after updates it became very fast and works properly now.
    The concept of the Miracast is that you put the dongle itself in the HDMI port, and connect it to a USB (power source, maybe the TV's), then you connect to the WiFi Access Point of the Dongle,(At this step you may play offline media) then you control the dongle to connect to the home's WiFi, so here you can play online videos.

    How did you get the phone to miracast? I have an OPO and a miracast dongle, but I can't find the miracast feature on the phone.

    I have an OPO and a Chromecast and do not see the mirroring button, but then again, I'm not willing to do a factory reset to see if I can coax it out.

    It works great with the Chromecast for all the normal supported apps.

    The generic screen cast works fine on a Samsung tv, a tronsmart uses miracast and ezcast also work on a Samsung tv.

    I bought it for $99 brand new in the US, but I'm sure they are cheaper by now.

    Thanks for the help. if anyone else is having the same issue, or just wants to see it in action, here is a video on how to miracast/mirror your Oneplus One to your TV. I'm using a Netgear PTV3000.

    Dlna works but unlike my old s3 the stock video players lacks a cast button.

    Google search these forums.

    Already documented.... A lot.

    hey, I have a Sony TV with built-in Miracast myself. And Miracast via my OPO worked pretty well earlier. However, after this last update, XNPH38R, I am unable to connect.

    Also, I tried using to stream via the Youtube app, it worked fine. I am just not able to cast my screen.

    My has worked since the update but I'm sure the audio quality was a lot work (had like a popping sound).... But this could have been the stream I was playing at the time, I'll check again and report back.
