    Guys, I have the Android Youtube app on my Passport and just happened to be connected to my home WiFi. Next thing I see.. the Youtube app suggests I stream to my TV. I'm shocked!

    This BlackBerry Passport keeps impressing me everyday and I'm a year in already.

    No extra apps or tweaking anything.

    Fantastic!

    Not trying to downplay your findings but, even BBOS devices have this capability. You just pair your device with the TV and boom, assuming you have some gear to do so. Like a media server set up or even a PS3.

    Did you simply just sideload the Chromecast app?

    I know the phone has the DLNA stream thing (or whatever it's called) but my TV doesn't support it so it's useless for me. Or was I just using it wrong?

    For Chromecast though, always thought I needed the Chromecast app to make it happen. I'm rather impressed.

    Not at all mate. Just the Youtube app. Get it from Cobalts posts. It's one of the patched apps he has posted up.

    Not for YouTube, it's one of the few apps doesn't need it because it's already piggy backing on the services built in. Technically you weren't using it wrong, just you seemingly never had anything connected to your TV that would have picked it up. It's not like something would pop up saying so, it's actually rather hidden in the YouTube settings. Your Chromecast just so happens to be something that it would work with and provide you with an indication of that but yeah.. you don't even need a Chromecast or the Chromecast app.

    This can be done using the BB10 Native Youtube app.

    Yes, it's the Youtube app for GPlay but a patched version so it does not prompt for Google Play Services.

    Just search Cobalts posts. Downloaded it months ago so can't really remember the exact one.

    You can just do this with your browser from any mobile device. It doesn't really have anything to do with miracast/chromecast or anything. You just need a smart TV with youtube capability and a google account. You just add the TV to your youtube account in your mobile browser.

    there is no native BB10 youtube app. i'm guessing you meant the web app on the BB10 browser.

    Not really true. Early builds of BB10 had issues doing this. Some even not being supported at all. I believe VZW early version OS on the Z10 was not supported even though there was talk about being supported. I used a black and white VZW Z10 and the did not support Chromecast
