So keep reading! We have everything you need to know so you can start enjoying your entertainment in no time at all!

How to Screen Mirror on a Nebula Capsule Projector

The first thing we are going to discuss is the specific directions for connecting your Nebula Capsule project so that its screen mirrors whatever you are looking at on your phone or smart device through the projector and onto wherever you are watching the big screen!

To screen mirror on a Nebula Capsule Projector, there are three options: screen mirroring for Android with the Nebula app, screen mirroring with IOS devices, and Chromecast. Each option is simple and only requires that both devices are connected to the same WiFi.

There are actually three ways to enjoy screen mirroring on your Nebula Capsule Projector: with the screen mirroring option on Android devices, screen mirroring for IOS devices, or through Chromecast.

Screen Mirroring for Android Option

Screen mirroring can be accessed through most Android smart devices and is incredibly simple to do. 

Here’s what you need to do: 

  • Power the Nebular Capsule Projector to ON.
  • On your Android smartphone or tablet, open the Nebula app.
  • Go to Settings, then click General, Screen Mirroring, and finally select Android.
  • Navigate to the Settings Menu on your smart device and turn on Screen Mirroring. 
  • Select Nebula Capsule Projector. 

That’s all there is to it! You should now see your device screen playing through the projector. 

Screen Mirror for IOS Option

If you have an iPhone or Apple product, the instructions are slightly different as there is no Nebula app for these devices. 

Instead, just follow these steps: 

  • Enable screen mirroring on your IOS device in the Settings Menu.
  • Turn the Nebula Capsule Projector to ON.
  • The Nebula Capsule will appear on the list of available screen mirroring devices. 
  • Click to connect. 

Once again, you will now clearly see your device’s screen portrayed on the big screen. 

Chromecast Option

It’s important to note that you can only use the Chromecast option for screen mirroring onto your Nebula Capsule Projector if you have an Android device. 

If you do, here’s what you need to do:

  • Turn on your Nebula Capsule Projector.
  • On your Android device, navigate to the Settings Menu.
  • Click Connected Devices>Connection Preferences>Cast.
  • Select the Nebula Capsule Projector on the list of available devices. 

You should be good to go! Now, if you are having trouble with any of these options, don’t worry! We are going to go through the possible issues you may be encountering, and even more importantly, how to fix them yourself!

Troubleshooting Screen Mirroring to Nebula Capsule Projector

Still can’t see your device’s screen shown through the Nebula Capsule Projector? You are not alone! There are a couple of issues that many users experience, and we’re going to go through them now so you can figure out why it’s not working and what to do about it. 

The two most likely reasons why you cannot screen mirror to your Nebula Capsule Projector are as follows:

  • Your Nebula Capsule and smart device are not connected to the same WiFi.
  • You are trying to watch something that is not allowed due to copyright and encryption protocol. 

Now let’s learn what you can do to fix these problems right now. 

Connect to the Same Wireless Network

The most common issue people encounter when attempting to screen mirror their device to the Nebula Capsule Projector is that the two devices are not connected to the same network.

If your smartphone has a data plan, you will still need to turn on the WiFi option and connect to your home wireless network in order to screen mirror. Of course, the Nebula Capsule also needs to be connected to the same network. 

In order to connect the Nebula Capsule to your home WiFi, you need to open the Nebula app on your phone and navigate through the settings prompts to connect it to your router. 

If you are on the road and do not have a wireless network, you can connect the two by turning on your smartphone’s hotspot and connecting the Nebula Capsule to that network. 

Hopefully, you are now enjoying watching your phone screen come to life through the projector, but if you’re still having trouble, there is one more problem that could be occurring. 

The App or Program You Chose is Not Allowed

Unfortunately, because of copyright laws and encrypted apps, you will not be able to watch everything you are able to enjoy on your phone through the Nebula Capsule Projector. 

If you are trying to screen mirror Netflix, Hulu, or Prime Video, you will not be able to see it on the big screen. 

You can watch Youtube, and through Chromecast, you can even enjoy Prime Video, but the options are limited. 

Final Thoughts 

Hopefully, you now know the answer to our original question: how to screen mirror on a Nebula Capsule Projector! 

To recap, you can use one of three sets of directions listed above in order to enjoy seeing your phone screen on the projector screen, through screen mirroring or Chromecast, depending on the type of smart device you are using. 

Just remember, both devices need to be connected to the same home wireless network and there are certain entertainment apps that are not able to be projected.
