Does anyone know if it's possible to stream video content to an HTPC Win 10 computer using Miracast or some other application? Would like to be able to stream YouTube videos we find on our Surface Pro 4s to a TV screen. Kids love that type of stuff and it's an easy way to show something, rather than have everyone gather around the tablet. Would also like to stream from Media Player as well, but online streaming content is probably the #1 priority over local content.

Has anyone done this?

I asked kind of a similar question in software for windows forum. No answer. In short, there are only two options that I see. The newest anniversary Win10 update does include an option to stream to another computer, however I have not played with that yet. I would suggest giving that a try as your first option. Another option would be to look into third party software. Squirrels software has Parrot and Reflector applications that might fit your needs.
