    Hi all.

    Great apps btw. I am looking for a detailed walkthrough of how to set something up, I'm yet to find comprehensive help for features. Is it that there are so many and as of yet this collection doesn't exist?

    The feature I'm trying to implement is this: while watching a Youtube video in the Youtube app on my phone, I want to use AutoShare/Tasker to open the same video in Chrome on the PC. I watched the video:
    but these aren't quite the steps I need to take.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    Ok so I found the very simple way to do this through Join.
    I guess my question about documentation still stands :)

    Glad you got it with join. What part couldn't you get to work with AutoShare exactly?

    I wasn't using the MEORemote so I was getting a bit lost with how to make it work otherwise, all good, I think just my inexperience with tasker at the the time.
    I've been using it a lot more now, and made the switch to Chrome (from IE, wow, so much better). I am loving Join, working great :)
    I did have a question about sharing, I am using Join now to open videos from the Youtube app on my phone onto Chrome, working well. What I'm now trying to do is get my phone to perform a Tasker action after it shares, is this possible? In this case the Tasker action will open my Unified Remote Youtube remote (https://www.unifiedremote.com/remotes/youtube-web) on my phone ready to control Youtube from the loungeroom. I have the task ready to go in Tasker, I'm just unsure on how to set up the Profile to trigger it. If it helps I have full versions of AutoRemote and AutoShare..
    Thanks for the support :)

    No need for a new thread. How exactly are you sharing the youtube videos from your phone to your PC? Thanks

    I am using choosing "Join" from Share menu within the app, then choosing "Chrome" from "Choose Device To Share With"

    What I would do is share to an AutoShare Command instead of Join, then in the task use the Join Send Push action to push the url to your PC and do whatever else you want in Tasker too :)
