We recommend casting your Live Feed from a computer or laptop to your TV (via a service like AirPlay or Chromecast) whenever possible because smart TVs don’t have the same computing power that laptops have.
If you are unable to bring a laptop to the venue in order to run your Live Feed, certain TV browsers will allow you to run the slideshow with just a few limitations.
Smart TV Recommendations
Not all Smart TVs allow access to a browser that is compatible with Live Feed. Certain TVs that do not meet the criteria specified here may work but have not been tested by Simple Booth’s team.
TVs that support the Android operating system (and access to the Google Play Store) will give you access to multiple browsers that support Live Feed.

Tips & Limitations
Check and adjust your TV’s sleep or screensaver settings to keep your TV from disrupting the Live Feed.
The Rebound layout does not work well on Smart TVs. If using Rebound is a priority, a laptop is recommended in order to run the Live Feed.
GIFs and Live GIFs do not work well with the “Slide” animation option.
GIFs and Live GIFs start to look choppy if the Live Feed grid is adjusted to include 12 or more frames.
Still pictures start to look choppy if the Live Feed grid is adjusted to include 20 more frames.
