    See, DRM (Digital Rights Management) is a tool/software which is used to prevent the unauthorized use or redistribute or just how users use a copyright content... Netflix, Prime Video etc. uses DRM to prevent all that misuse of their contents... DRM is used in almost every paid services.. Otherwise people may misuse it... For e.g. People may use one account and screen record the movie when they are watching and then share with other person or just download and share it with someone... So, it'll be not good for company...

    Now a days almost every phone has DRM... It's not a hardware, it's embedded into your phone's software to prevent unauthorized use of the content... You're talking about K4 Note etc. which a cheaper and older phone and it may not have such strict policy about DRM so that's why you're able to cast it to your TV...

    You can try capturing screenshot in Netflix app... If you can do it in your Lenovo K4 then your phone doesn't gives a damn about DRM... You can't do the same thing in your 6T, it'll not allow you to do so!! This is what it'll show you when you try to take screenshot...

    You can cast YouTube content because it doesn't have such restriction but you can't do that with a paid app/services...

    Screen Mirroring and Chromecast both are different things... Screen Mirroring as the name suggests, it is used to mirror your phone's display to TV whereas Chromecast is mainly used to stream shows, movies etc. to your TV...

    And Chromecast doesn't need to be in your phone... It should be present in your TV to cast all that copyrighted content or otherwise you can purchase Chromecast/Firestick if your TV doesn't have Chromecast built in and then you'll be able to stream on to your TV!!

    Your Phone has nothing to do with it...

    The story about the Lenovo K4 should be about the Widevine level. The OnePlus 6T supports L1 for HD Streaming and the cheap K4 probably only supports L3. So you can only Watch DRM Content a basic resolution. At Netflix it is 560p instead of 720p or 1080p.

    The less resolution means that there is less data to protect and it seems that screen mirroring is working.

    I don't tested it, but when unlock your bootloader (don't do it, if you don't need it), the Widevine certification goes down to L3. DRM Reason. The mirroring may work now, but without HD resolution.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 (premium tablet) and the Netflix screen mirroring is not working - DRM. The playback on a TV/monitor worked while using video out with an type-c to hdmi adapter.

    Again you don't need to have Chromecast cast in your phone... "No phone has Chromecast!! Your TV needs Chromecast not phone" Your phone only needs WiFi to work...

    YourTV should have Chromecast built in or if it doesn't have then purchase a external Chromecast... Chromecast needs to be plugged into you TV's HDMI port and then you will be able to stream anything from your phone, tablet, Laptop etc. which has WiFi ... It looks something like this..

    You can purchase this one from Flipkart... It's cost around 3000 Indian rupees... Here is the link-

    http://dl.flipkart.com/dl/google-ch...5?pid=SELF9FC9RFFF7JTC&cmpid=product.share.pp

    You can just plug into your TV HDMI port and you're good to go... You'll be able to stream songs on Spotify, videos or shows on Prime Video/Netflix etc...

    Take the nornal Chromecast (3rd Gen.) for 1080p playback or the Chromecast Ultra for 4k/UHD playback.

    Chromecast (3rd gen): https://store.google.com/product/chromecast
    Chromecast Ultra: https://store.google.com/product/chromecast_ultra
    Also available on other stores.


    Screen mirroring is not intended for video playback. Chromecast also shows a black video while playing Netflix or Prime Video. For this you use the cast option at the Chromecast. Your phone is the remote to choose the content and then Chromecast streams it to the connected TV.


    I tested this on my Moto G2 and my Chromecast (2nd Gen) and the screen mirroring works fine with Prime Video. The reason is the non-HD playback.

    I don't think there is any which is cheaper... Anyways keep in mind, it requires internet... You should have wifi or hotspot in your home to work otherwise it'll not work... BTW which Sony Bravia model are you using?

    But when my tv is connected on screen mirroring to other phones it doesn't needs any chromecast can you tell me why?. Accept it it's nothing but the concept of DRM that oneplus 6t uses which restricts to cast streaming apps. Few other phones allow to use without stress of connecting an external chromecast. It's not the fault of a TV but the phone's DRM.

    See you didn't got my point... You can try this on other phones which costs around or more than 30K... It'll not work but if you use it with a cheaper phone then it may work because they don't have strict DRM protection... They don't focus much on it... It'll not work on any flagship device but it may work on cheaper device...

    Screen Mirroring main purpose is to mirror your phone screen on to your TV while Chromecast main purpose is to steam services on to your TV not your phone's screen... If your TV has Chromecast built in (which most of the new TV has) then you don't have to purchase a external Chromecast...
