    I want to play videos from my laptop on a TV using chromecast but I have no router.
    Is it possible to wi-fi connect directly without a router in the middle. No internet access
    is required.

    Why do I want this ? So when I go on long trips I can take my laptop loaded with videos
    and play them on my room tv by plugging in a chromecast to the TV's hdmi port.

    I have a laptop and I have Chromecast, I am going to say as things stand now you can't do that. If your laptop has HDMI output, of course direct connection to an HDTV with HDMI input would work great.

    Thanks. This is what I thought. Hopefully there will be a way to link directly via an ad-hoc connection with future firmware.
