Unfortunately, you need a dongle for your TV, unless it's a smart TV. You can buy the Google Chromecast which will allow you to share your screen, pictures, videos, and music from your Samsung Galaxy S5 to your television easily. As for your Laptop, you can use the BBQScreen app to effortlessly share your phone's screen to your computer's.

Is it possible for Samsung Galaxy S5 to mirror the Camera app display to a Belkin Screencast (TV adapter for Intel Wireless Display) connected to my TV? If so, how?

I want to see my ear on my TV. That is, I want to use my Galaxy S5 camera app to take a post-op picture of some surgery done on my ear. Its too difficult for me to see my S5's display with my Camera app in "selfie mode" pointing at my ear. Its possible, but also difficult, to use a handheld mirror or a bathroom mirror. I'd just like to see my phone's display on my TV, which is connected via HDMI to a Belkin Screencast WiDi adapter. My S5 successfully scans and lists "Belkin Screencast1-ScreenCast" as an available device. When I tap on that list entry, my phone displays "Invitation sent". When I then push "OK", my phone displays "Screen Monitoring - Failed to connect to Screen Mirroring".
