How can I cast movie from smartphone to TV using Chromcast ?
« on: December 12, 2014, 08:14:57 PM »
I am unable to cast movies/video clips (avi, mkv. mp4 etc..) from my Samsung S5 to TV using Chromecast
Is it possible ?
I can watch these movies/clips on the phone with mo problem
I tried to use, Allcast, localcast, BubbleUPnP without success

If your device is running kitkat 4.4,2 or better you can now cast your screen through the chromecast app. That should work.  Esfile explorer now has a chromecast plugin.  You can cast any file on your device with it.

Although Chromecast can handle various video types such as WebM, MP4, MPEG and MKV, if your video files are rejected by Chromecat, what you can do is to encode videos to MP4 for Chromecast and then use the Chromecast's local playback workaround to stream the movies to Chromecast.
