Download Nintendo Switch Game Wallpapers

Nintendo has created ‘wallpapers’ you can use on your Mac or PC for almost every game available for the Switch. You can use them as the background for your iPhone or Android phone, but they’re not sized for the screen of a phone so you’ll have to do a bit of creative adjusting. Here’s a sample of some of those wallpapers – and links where you can find them all.

How to Stream From VLC to Chromecast

Since the Chromecast was introduced, we’ve all been waiting for VLC to support it. Now with version 3, it finally does.

At this time, you’ll need to manually download and update the App via the VLC website – the built-in ‘check for updates’ feature will not recognize version 3.0 as the latest.

Once you have the latest version installed, open any media file in VLC. Select Playback from the main menu, then Renderer, and finally select your Chromecast device.

That’s it! Now you can stream .mkv, .flac and all the other popular but unsupported file types to your Chromecast! :)
