If the tablet has not yet been upgraded to Android operating system 4.1.1 (Jellybean), simply open the Movies app, browse to and select the video content you want to throw, press the Throw button, and then select the desired connected device. The content would be thrown to that device immediately after being selected.

After the tablet is upgraded to Android operating system 4.1.1 (Jellybean), the function of the Throw button will change slightly, in that the video content will not be thrown to the selected device simply when you start the connection.

  1. Open the Movies app.
