Hii guyz. 

 

I want to plug in the intel computing stick into my desktop and it should automatically play the video that I have in it. Is there a possibility to get this done?

 

Thank you

Does your desktop have a HDMI input?  Probably not, unless you have some video capture card.  Otherwise, the Compute Stick requires a HDMI display/monitor/TV to use for video output.

What has an HDMI?  Your desktop?  If so, that is for HDMI output.   The stick does HDMI output as well.  OUTPUT into OUTPUT does nothing.

One thing, simple and easy, is if your desktop monitor has multiple HDMI INPUTS.  If so, plug your desktop into one of the monitor inputs, and the stick into another monitor input, and manually switch the monitor between the inputs.

Or, get an HDMI KVM, and use that to switch between the stick and desktop.
