streaming photos to TV directly

New member | Level 2

Hi, is there any way to have photos streamed directly from dropbox to apple TV/chromecast/Vizio SmartCast?  Don't want to manually have to mirror and think there is some degradation of quality that are hi res and i'm keeping them on dropbox to save space on my laptop.... but now in-laws want to see photos of the grandkids!

Thanks for any advice you have !

I’d kindly recommend looking around the web for a third party app that could help with this. I’ll also leave this thread open for any other users that may have any other ideas on the matter. 
In any case, let me know of any updates! slightly smiling face
