How to play our media from a laptop to an in-home television.

While most smaller groups use our videos in streaming format straight from a laptop or iPad, we know that some prefer to play our videos on a larger flat screen television. This is simple to do but because there are so many options we want to give you the simplest method.


You will need to be connected to local wifi to either or play or download the relevant small group video. While the old-school method was DVD, we do not use this method any longer. You can either connect to wifi and stream the video with a stable wifi connection, or if you do not have a stable connection you can download the video while connected and save it to your laptop.


There are a few ways to do this. We recommend a “hardwired” choice since this presents fewer issues. While some will “sling” the video using Apple Play or other wireless options this might present interruptions if the wifi is disconnected during a pause or stop. Here are three ways to connect your laptop to the TV

  1. If you are using a PC you can use a straight HDMI male to HDMI male cord:
  2. If you are using a Mac (older version) you can use this adapter to HDMI male to male:
  3. If you are using a Mac (newer version) you can use this adapter HDMI male to male:

Then just push play as need be.
