I have been looking for finding a way to cast my camera's live view on my computer while I can watch the live view on the camera itself simultaneously. I could not find any solution like using digiCamControl and any other Nikon software and even using chromecast device. Does anyone have an idea?

With Nikon D3x00 series and D5x00 series cameras you can't. Apparently it is hardware limitation. Other Nikon models may also be affected by the same limitation.

Bottom line: If you want to view Live View via both an external monitor and the camera's LCD at the same time, Nikon is probably not the way to go.

Please see other existing questions here regarding this and similar issues:
