You need smart gadgets for a smart TV if you want to screencast the screen of your phone to a TV and enjoy playing games on a larger screen. Wrong! Screencasting to a TV over a wired connection is possible thanks to MHL, a long-established technology. We will explain what MHL is today and how to use it effectively.
Mobile High-definition Link, or MHL for short, employs a five-pin connection to transmit up to 1080p video, 192kHz audio, and 7.1 channel surround sound. You can share the display from your smartphone on a TV or monitor by connecting your smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices to it. It is, in essence, a wired version of Google Chromecast that enables screencasting to a TV. The advantage in this situation is that there is no lag between the phone and the screen because it is a connected connection.

If you want to screencast with the aid of MHL, you need a few things.
- The source device (smartphone, tablet, or any other phone) and the display device (TV or monitor) must have an MHL connection feature. If it doesn t then you can also use an MHL-to-HDMI adaptor. You can check out if your device supports MHL or not by clicking here.
- An MHL cable.
And using those tools, you can screencast to an MHL-compatible TV.
Now that you have everything you need, you can just plug it in and start using it. Simply connect the HDMI cable’s one end to the adaptor and its other end to the TV.
Using the micro USB or Type-C port on the adapter, now connect your smartphone with the MHL adaptor (depending upon your phone type). Once everything is linked, you may watch your smartphone’s display on your TV.
And if you get acclimated to MHL technology, it’s really not that difficult to utilise it. If your home doesn’t have a smart TV or Google Chromecast, this might be a very helpful hack. Markets and Amazon both sell MHL cables for no cost.
