Using the CTRL-O option of Chrome in Windows, I can select and play movie files through Chrome that are stored on my HD.
But Chromecast usually disconnects 3-4 times during every movie. I then have to restart Chromecast and resume the movie at the point where Chromecast stopped.
I'm running Windows 8.1 on a high end PC (I7 processor, 6mb RAM, 2MB Video RAM, no other apps running). Internet speed is 20 mbps. Chrome is reported as up to date.
Most of the movies are mkv filetypes.
Any thoughts as to why this is happening?
