I have this spare monitor lying around:
I was thinking of using it to stream videos on. It has no 3.5mm jack or built in speakers. I will be able to use my laptop speakers but I'd prefer to get USB speakers and plug them into the monitor itself.
I'm wondering if the audio will go from my laptop through HDMI to the monitor and then play through the USB speakers?
Ideally I'd like to get a chromecast so I'd have no connections with my laptop and possibly stream from my phone too.
