How to Stream ShowBox Movies to TV via PC

 Showbox can be streamed using your PC as well. There are plenty of ways you can connect your PC to your TV, and once you get the ShowBox app on your PC, you can let it play on your large screen TV as well! Pretty cool, right?

A common issue with streaming showbox movies to your TV using the PC is the fact that Chromecast’s essential app, “Google Cast”, doesn’t pop up in the menu when you try to cast it. ShowBox has of late stopped supporting Google Cast on itself. There are not many solutions in sight. But there are some things you can do that may bear fruit.

App enthusiasts from around the world have come up with some ingenious ways to get ShowBox to Stream Movies on TV via PC. Here are some of them:

  1. The easiest way out is to switch media players on your mobile device. If your app is installed on your phone and you cannot find support for casting apps, you can use VLC player instead of MX Player or the default Android Video Player. There are tens of other apps that could work too. Do tell us which other apps worked for you.
  2. Many have suggested getting an Android Box device for a little over $30. It uses very little electricity, and can play movies, run Kodi software and host IPTV as well, among other fun features. This solution is awesome because it lets you play your favorite TV show and Movie without many apps to act as intermediaries. You can even get Kodi and get the ShowBox Add on and hence run your favorite content directly on your PC!
  3. If nothing else works, you can go for a method like using GrowBox app. The app behaves like MX Player and will run your favorite movies for you. But along with it, it also supports casting your screen to the TV, just like MX Player could do in the old times. With GrowBox, you can use any casting application you like and play your movies on the TV. This also works for laptops with ShowBox installed on Android Emulators.


Showbox has Stopped Error and other common issues; How to get through them

We’ve all had a lot of fun with ShowBox, watching our favorite movies and TV shows without a care in the world. But every so often, some users report problems watching or browsing content on the app.

Issues might exist on your Kodi, your PC or your Mac, especially if you have an improperly installed emulator. Problems on Android are rarer. But not to worry! Here’s how to solve those issues in a jiffy.

Error 1. ShowBox message: “Cannot Play Video”

Many movies can get reported after they were uploaded. This can be when the movie had a bad print, or when it didn’t play properly. As a result, ShowBox removes the video till it can get a better video to be added in its place.

If you’re getting this message, you can report it to our team. Or, you could wait till the proper print is uploaded, which doesn’t take long. Alternatively, you could look for the movie on another app, though the quality is almost certainly not going to be as great as Show Box.

Error 2. “Unfortunately, Showbox has stopped”.

This error could be caused by an overloaded device without sufficient RAM to run the app. Since the app usually takes very little space to run, this could mean it is time you cleaned your device. Therefore, you need to take out time to delete unnecessary stuff, be it files, apps or cache data. Once you have cleared it up, you may reboot the device so everything starts with a clean slate. Your app should run fine.

Error 3.  “Try another server”.

A lot of movies are uploaded in multiple prints, and it is helpful in case one gets overloaded or faulty in some way. When you’re asked to try another server, it might be because that print has been deleted due to some issue, or if it has too many devices streaming it, though that is pretty rare given ShowBox’s streaming capacity and the variety of movies it has to offer.

If there isn’t another print, you may report it to the team and have it resolved in a few minutes. You could have a look at other apps like ShowBox HD as well.

Error 4. “Video not available”.

This happens when the video uploaded has been taken down. This could be due to copyright infringement, improper uploads or quality issues. Alternatively, the content could be restricted by geography or access settings. Consequently, there’s a good chance the movie won’t be available to watch elsewhere either, so try getting a different movie to watch.

Error 5. APK connection error (BlueStacks)

ShowBox APK can be installed onto your PC using BlueStacks. And it runs fine. But occasionally, the PC can have a tough time connecting to the app’s database. This is displayed as a connection error. To get the app working, you can close and re-open BlueStacks and see if the app connects properly to your internet. Other times, it could indicate an error on part of your ISP. Check if your WiFi or LAN is working properly. If not, call up your internet company to check what the issue is.

Error 6. “Check Your Internet”

This can happen to all people. ShowBox HD needs to be connected to the internet to play amazing movies and TV shows. If your internet doesn’t connect, try checking your networking settings. Check if the WiFi is working OK by trying out other apps or websites. If not, you can call your ISP and have them resolve the issue.

The connection errors on Kodi and PC are more common, since there is an additional element for the content to filter through to the audience. Try out the steps we mention for these common Show Box errors.

Final Words

In conclusion, millions of people in the United States can fulfil their daily entertainment dose now, thanks to the free movies & TV shows on Showbox. The app comes as a great saviour for movie freaks as tons of GBs of data can be browsed and seen online with great speed, thanks to the developers. Recently popular Game of Thrones series is fully fledged available, so are the numerous latest English movies from all genres. Pick up the movie of your choice and start streaming on the Showbox App (download details provided above).
