Why cast Oculus Quest 2 to TV?

We mentioned this earlier briefly, but it’s worth some expansion here. In addition to allowing your friends and family to see what you see, it also helps with streaming as you can simply use a capture card to capture what’s on the TV. This is beneficial for a couple of reasons: the first of which is that you can set up a green screen behind yourself, then chroma key the green out and overlay it on top of the footage cast from the Quest 2. Additionally, utilizing this feature means you can avoid developer mode and the increased latency that comes from streaming directly from the Oculus Quest 2.
