Miracast Receive Documentation


  • I see a new developer feature exposed to Windows 8.1 August Update is the ability for apps to include miracast Receive functionality.   Is there any documentation on this? 

    • Miracast Receive – exposes a set of Wi-Fi direct APIs for Independent Hardware Vendor (IHV) drivers or OEM drivers to develop Windows 32-bit applications that run on all supported x86-based or x64-based versions of Windows 8.1, enabling the computer as a Miracast receiver.

    Is this exposed for Store apps where we can connect and stream video as like a MediaElement or does this not work within the WinRT environment?

  • From your quote it is for IHV and OEM drivers, not for general purpose apps, and it is for Win32 applications, not Windows Store apps.
