    Is that possible?

    Is see Samsung has a gallery app but it seems to only capture what i have on my android phone. I would like to have my PC cast my photos to my TV through wifi.

    Anyone knows an app for that?

    You can't do it directly to the TV from a PC so far as I know, although you could hook it up to the HDMI output and use it as a monitor. To cast it wirelessly, you need a google chromecast or, if you have a mac, an apple tv.

    You can also get a wireless usb drive, put that on your tv, and copy things to it from your computer, and your tv should see whatever is on the USB drive. Bit convoluted, and I am not sure it would work as well as it sounds, because you have to somehow get the tv to keep refreshing the data from the thumb drive--typically it's only done when the drive is inserted or when you switch to the input.

    You can also use your pc to put the pics on a website or hosting service like dropbox or flickr, and then use the browser in your tv to browse the website or download the flickr app to see the flickr stream..

    If you're running Win 10, go to settings/devices/bluetooth/add
    On the popup, pick wireless display or dock
    Put your TV in discover mode and pair
    Your PC is now mirrored to the TV!
