          Answer

          I used the IOGEAR - Bluetooth 4.0 USB Micro Adapter. If you're using WinXP, Vista, or WIn8, you might need the IOGear drivers (newest versions come with the adapter, so no downloads). Win10 PnP recognizes it right away with no drivers to install.

                  Bluetooth is for streaming audio and transferring files, it doesn't have the bandwidth to stream video. HDMI looks to be your only option, either through cable or wireless which is expensive. The use of HDMI is of course contingent on your PC having one or more HDMI outlet ports.
