Watching a movie via bluetooth, sending audio and video signals from the notebook to the receiver

My notebook has bluetooth function, as well as my receiver.
So, I listen to music on my Hometheater via bluetooth, sending the audio signal from the notebook to the receiver.
However, I wonder if there is any way for me to not only listen to music, but also watch a movie on my Hometheater (using Windows Media Player, eg.), sending both audio AND VIDEO signals from the notebook to the receiver, via bluetooth (or any other wireless technology).
Does anyone know of any technology that already does this?

    You need a casting device to do that.

    Windows Media Player IS the casting device.
    I've done it via wired as well as wireless over my network and shown it other people.
    Open up Windows Media Player and go to the library where the videos are and right click on the movie you want to watch on another device. On the pop up menu you will see "cast to". Move the mouse over that and you should see the other devices on your network which can play the video.
    You must of course first have the media streaming turned on in Windows Media player. If you have any questions feel free to pm Private Message) me.
