Nexus 5 - Widi [Wireless display]

  • Hi

    I have a Nexus 5 and Ubport OS on it... To my question - Is there a way to use wireless display?
    seems like the phone doesn't searching for any wireless display at all...
    Have I done something wrong?

  • I can confirm not getting listed any wireless display adapter with the Nexus 5.

  • Sorry for the ignorance, but what is "wireless display"? I think this device can connect to an external display through the slimport (with the appropriate cable adapter), I tried this and it works perfectly, but the 15.04 Unity 8 desktop is not too much developed. But it doesn't have as far as I know mirachast or whatever it is called like the Meizo Pro 5 to connect wirelessly, does it?

  • @wgarcia Canonicals solution was called aethercast. I think it kinda worked for some devices and it should theoretically be conceivable with every device. But it might require some work still.

  • Okeey! Do you all think aethercast working on the fairphone 2?
    I'v got that phone too...
    It's a good feature for ubuntu touch I think...

  • I thought aethercast was too slow and so it was not appropriate for convergence. On the other hand, I thought the Meizu pro 5 was the only ported device capable of that.

  • Oh.. Okej.. thanks anyway guys! 🙂
