Currently it does not support the Chromecast since the Chrome team has yet to make an API that we can embed into our app. It sounds a bit technical, yes we know, but rest assured that as soon as we can support the Chromecast, we will.

For now, if you want to use a Chromecast to display your Tweetwall, we recommend that you install the Google Cast Chrome Browser Extension and then navigate to your Tweetwall. From there you'll be able to cast the tab that your Tweetwall is in.

To install the chrome app, go to the Tweetwall for Chrome page, and then click the "Available in the Chrome web store" image, and when prompted to add it to chrome, click on "Add." Once it's been installed, you'll see it in the installed apps in Chrome.

Anytime you want to launch a Tweetwall, just click on the icon and then search for your event.

To view a video of the process (Chrome OS, but similar for any operating system), view the video below.

You do not have to do anything. The Tweetwall Chrome App will automatically prevent your computer's screen from going to sleep whenever you have a Tweetwall loaded (it will not prevent it if you're just on the search screen).

If you find that your computer does still go to sleep you can do one of the following:

Windows XP

  1. Right-click the desktop, and select Properties.
  2. Click the Screen Saver tab, and click the Power button near the bottom of the dialog box.
  3. Change the option next to "System Standby" to "Never" for "Plugged in" (since you should be running your Tweetwall on a computer plugged in). Click "Apply," "OK" and "OK" once again to close the Display Properties dialog box.
Windows 7
  1. Click "Start," and then select Control Panel.
  2. Click on Power Options
  3. Select High Performance under Additional Plans, and then click Change Plan Settings. Change all of the options to say Never.
  4. Click OK to save the changes
Mac OS X 10.7+
  1. Click the Apple menu, and select System Preferences.
  2. Click Energy Saver.
  3. Move the slider for Computer Sleep and the Display Sleep to Never.
  4. Close the window by clicking the red x in the top left corner.
Chrome OS
  1. On Chrome OS, you do not need to do anything. The Tweetwall Chrome App will prevent your computer from going to sleep automatically, as long as a Tweetwall is active on the screen.
