How to Show PC movie on TV

I know this is pretty stupid but there is no such thing as a stupid question (right); well I constantly watch ppl send thier laptop, iphone and pc movies to thier tvs with a flick/touch of the fingers, how do they do it. I have about 1.5 TB of movies and currently copy to flash drive and watch thru the dvd but would just like to send directly from my pc to my tv which has wireless connection. I can watch netflix or other sources on it. Is there a tutorial or something than can explain in detail how to do it. I'm old and a little slow but after doing it once I usually have it figured out, any help is appreciated, thanks.

Not sure about wireless, but I connect my PC to my HDTV with an HDMI cable.

First of all, does your TV have HDMI input? If so, you could get a Miracast adapter that plugs into the TV that will allow you to direct the output of your PC to your TV wirelessly. However, in order for Miracast to work, you will need a wifi adapter for your PC. Miracast is also known as "HDMI over wifi".

Windows media player will also stream to your tv. Not sure what your tv uses, I use a ROKU. This article shows enabling streaming via WMP

My nephew has a roku too it's pretty cool,
He was running roku through Linux
Allot of free channels but most of the good ones are subscription but I didn't look at all of the free ones very carefully
Worth looking into,
Nothing like the picture quality of hdmi though

I couldn`t imagine trying to do it wirelessly, wouldn`t there be pixalation, stuttering and all that going on ?

I agree, the Roku is 1080p. I use the free Roku Media Player app, stream my movies to my TV

Back then, before I got HDMI, once in a while, I had to convert from normal DVD to mp4, or vice-versa, I used WinDX tools. Now, with HDMI, such conversions are almost unheard of [being needed].

Just want to send my movies in mkv to tv without cables. People are just sending what ever is on their laptop straight to tv wirelessly so why not from pc. Thanks

Don't want to do that, using wireless hdmi from LR TV to br tv and no problems so a wireless connection shoul be possible fro pc to main tv.
