I am looking into possibilities to project my Windows 10 laptop desktop over Miracast.

My laptop has Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 card; typically it is said:


HD 3000 graphics are not supported on Windows 10

Also, dxdiag days: "Miracast: Not Supported by Graphics driver"; and in Administrative cmd.exe, running NETSH WLAN SHOW DRIVER says:

Wireless Display Supported: No (Graphics Driver: No, Wi-Fi Driver: Yes)

So apparently, in Windows 10, Miracast support depends on device driver capabilities.

However, looking at https://askubuntu.com/questions/318298/ubuntu-as-miracast-sender-receiver I can see that there are (what seem to be) user-space software (that is, non-driver) Miracast solutions for Ubuntu:

So, I was wondering - is there something similar for Windows 10? Either a user-space application, or some sort of a virtual display driver?

BTW, I looked into VLC, and it seems to have a Chromecast capability ( e.g. https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/stream-videos-vlc-chromecast/ ), but not Miracast ( Streaming to Miracast Wifi Display Dongle Receiver - The VideoLAN Forums ); similarly, I am aware there are Chromecast addons for Chrome browser, but I haven't been able to find something similar for Miracast.
