    Hi Guys,

    I am writing this post to help people who are experiencing issues in screen casting apps like Hotstar, Netflix, JioTV etc., mostly getting a blank screen on their Smart TVs. When they try to screen cast the apps while playing any video content on the apps, they are able to get the audio feedback from TV but no video feedback, just a blank screen.

    NO ROOT REQUIRED!

    Please follow the below steps to get expected screen cast from their Smart TVs:-

    Step 1: Download and install VirtualXposed application from this link.

    Step 2: Open the application and click on the launcher menu button

    Step 3: Click on Add App and allow the storage permission it requires.

    Step 4: Press the back button until you reach the VirtualXposed launcher screen and again click on launcher menu button, but this time, head over to Advanced Settings to Install / Uninstall Google Services

    Step 5: After installing the Google Services, press the back button until you reach the VirtualXposed launcher screen. Swipe up to access the Xposed Installer application.

    Step 6: Click on the hamburger icon or swipe towards right from the edge of the screen to access the Download section to download Xposed Installer modules.

    Step 8: Click on Modules section by opening the menu of Xposed Installer same way as in Step 6 and tick the module installed.

    Steps 1 to 9 are to be followed just one time to configure everything needed to enable screen cast for apps like Hotstar, JioTV, Netflix etc.

    Step 10:
    Now, click on Add App and tick the app on which screen cast was not working and click on install and then VIRTUALXPOSED.

    Step 11: After the apps are installed, you can access them by swiping up on the launcher screen.

    PS: If you get this type of screen when reopening VirtualXposed application, just deny it to save battery consumption.

    Hi prabhat,

    Thanks for the useful link & information. After following the above steps, I am able to cast video now on jiotv, mxplayer, hotstar, Airtel TV. But Amazon prime, sonyliv & zee5 still not working.

    1) Amazon prime opens but does now show video
    2) zee5 opens & crashes
    3) sonyliv opens & then show black screen.

    If you have any suggestions for above then please help.

    Thanks
    Varun

    I tried to cast Prime Video and SonyLiv without VirtualXposed, they work normally.
    The only app which is not working is Zee5. I will try to figure out how to fix it too. But for now, try out Prime Video and SonyLiv casting normally.

    I face the same issue with Netflix and I went through the steps but Netflix is not available in the Add app list in VirtualXposed. How to solve this for Netflix?
