3. I'm no expert, but ...

I used to get Netflix videos sent to my laptop, and a ran a cable (HDMI?) to my TV (there's a plug hole (?) for it.
Then I use my TV remote to change the source of the TV signal from cable to HDMI.

You also might Google your question.
I usually find answers and even YouTube videos for my questions there.

6. You can cast YouTube to.smart tv's

From your laptop or phone via Bluetooth

Look for this icon on YouTube or other video.player on phone or laptop.



Otherwise invest in a long high quality HDMI cord

7. Sure. IF...

you have a TV with wifi or other way to get into your home network.

Aside from that, you're stuck with that HDMI cable. Even worse, some HDMI ports and/or cables won't transmit the sound for some reason. And you won't be able to use the TV remote for much.

But, if a $10 cable gets you to watch the movie on a big screen, it will be worth it.

8. What connections do you have?

Meaning on your computer and on your tv. Should be easy from there.

If easier, you can send pix of both devices to help figure it out.

15. You should have an HDMI port

both on your PC and on your Vizio tv. If so, you should just need an HDMI cable and then your TV will be treated as another display.

Can you check on this? If you can confirm, you can easily get the cable locally at Target, Best Buy etc.

After that, depending on your PC's operating system, it should be, at most, a quick setting adjustment if it doesn't work automatically.

9. You might try

[link:https://www.amazon.com/Toneseas-Wireless-Miracast-Streaming-Mirroring/dp/B075WV4W4Z/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1514839416&sr=1-4&keywords=wireless+hdmi+adapter|

You will need HDMI adapter on laptop and HDMI connection on TV.

I use cable connection from my desktop HDMI port to the tv and have no problems watching your site.

BTW I did not know about this movie site. Thank you!

10. You might also be able to piggyback on Google Chromecast

Also Google "Showbox download APK" where you can install that app on your android device, and a lot of devices allow you to cast directly to the Chromecast. Another option is to put kodi on a firestick.

21. It might be easier to download the movies and copy to a thumb drive

I believe Vizios can play MP4 movie files from a thumb drive inserted into the USB port.

Every movie I checked out on the site had a download link - either the lower quality they stream or a 720px version.

22. Most public domain movies are also on YouTube

If your Smart TV can play YouTube, then that's easiest.

I wanted to watch the movie Freaks and it wasn't on YouTube. So, I had to download it from archive.org and burn it onto a USB stick. We used an app in our ROKU to play it on TV.

23. If you are using Roku, Plex workes well with it. I can see things from my Desktop

on my TV. All sorts of things can be done. It might work with these movies. Basically it uses your router, TV and computer network for wireless communication, wifi.
Here are two links. You do not need a smart TV. I don't know for sure "if" it would work well for you. Just an fyi on these tools.
