Watching Kanopy via HDMI Cable

You can also watch Kanopy on your TV using an HDMI cable. You will need to own or purchase an HDMI cable, or equivalent cable for Mac if using a Mac computer, for this. To set this up:

  1. Attach the HDMI cable to your TV
    You will find HDMI ports on all newer televisions (typically on the side or back panels). Plug the HDMI cable into one of the ports (e.g. HDMI 1, HDMI 2, etc)
  2. Attach the HDMI cable to your computer
    Attach the other end of the HDMI cable to your computer/device
  3. Set your TV settings to the HDMI port
    Change the input source setting on your TV to the HDMI port you are using with the cord

Once connected, your computer screen will be mirrored to your TV screen. Continue to use Kanopy as you would normally on your computer. All actions, including video playback, will be mirrored to your TV screen. 

If you are seeing any cropping of the picture on your TV screen, try changing the aspect ratio of your TV display to adjust this.
