Watch Livestream Events using Chromecast

You can watch Livestream events on your TV via Chromecast. Connect your Chromecast to one of your TV’s HDMI ports, power on your TV and select that HDMI input.

You can watch Livestream events through Chromecast using either Google Chrome desktop browser or via the Livestream mobile app.

Desktop - Google Chrome

 

To cast Livestream events from your desktop to your Chromecast, first you need to install the Google Cast Chrome Web Extension from the Chrome Web Store.

Note: The Google Cast web extension does not work when you are browsing in incognito mode.


Once that is done, visit livestream.com and go to the live event you are trying to view.

On the bottom right corner of the player, you will see the Chromecast icon. Click it to start casting the stream.

The Google Cast extension will pop up a menu where you can select your Chromecast device name. Click the desired Chromecast to send the stream to your device.

After a moment, the stream will appear on your TV.

 

Livestream mobile app

 

Download the Livestream mobile app from the App Store or Google Play if you haven’t done so already.

 

You will need a Livestream account in order to use the mobile app. Log in to your account or create a new one for free by selecting ‘Continue with Email,’ and then ‘Sign up.’

Select a live event from the home page, or go to the navigation menu (upper right corner) to select a live event from Search, Popular, or Following.

Once you select a live event, the player will appear at the top of your screen. On the upper right corner, you will see the Chromecast icon.

Tap the icon and then select your Chromecast to start casting the stream to your TV.

The stream will appear on your TV in seconds, and you can control it through the mobile app.

    Why is there always a 60 seconds delay when using Chromecast with Livestream.com live streams, through either Chrome or the Android app? Youtube and other streaming-services doesn't have this problem, their live streams are at the same place in the stream on their webage as on a Chromecast, but if you start a Livestream.com live stream on a Chromecast, it always starts a little bit more than 60 seconds back in time compared to when wieving it live on your web page, which makes it useless if using timing and scoring on a computer to match the live event, as with sports.
