Default Need to wirelessly send movies from Sumsung Tablet to T V

I'm looking for a device to hook up to my T V to make it a 'Smart T V '

I have a new Sansung Galaxy S3 tablet and I'm impressed by all the stuff it can do

( had a Kindle for years ,,, I Know ...I know )

So now I want to see if I can "send" the movies I'm watching on the tablet to the T V

Something wireless ..... I've been told the item plugs into HDMI input of tv

Google Chromecast works great for my iphone and TV, or my laptop and TV. I stream things like HBONow and YouTube, TNT, etc. all day long.

Look up the LocalCast app for Android (Play Store).

It streams to Chromecast.

Also you can mirror your tab with the regular Chromecast app but it won’t be very smooth because mirroring is sent frame by frame. And say you want to play a game on your Android and see it on the TV, it will be OK but expect some dropped frames.

This is my experience a few year ago with Android. I am not using it anymore.

Why do you need to send it wirelessly?

I ask because I have multiple Smart TV's (Samsung and LG) as well as multiple Samsung tablets and phones.

It's cool to instantly choose 'Screen Mirroring" but during video playback, you can tell that a few frames are 'skipped'. Doesn't bother me when I share short flicks with my significant other IE russian car crashes, Key and Peele skits, etc. I'd hate to have this happen during a show or movie though. Fortunately, audio and video remains synced.

If I was trying to accomplish watching items from my tablet to my non-smart TV, I'd just use a micro USB to HDMI adapter. This way you can output what you see on your tablet directly to your TV.
