After failing to find a way to watch movies, Youtube, Netflix, etc, on a TV without draining my batteries, I finally picked up a Chromecast dongle. I installed the Chromecast app along with the Avia Media Player app but none of my XVID movies would play. After a few attempts at ripping a DVD into different formats, MKV video with AAC audio finally worked perfectly. I'm now in the process of re-ripping all my DVD's into MKV videos. Youtube and Netflix are working great. Chromecast's screen mirroring is still a WIP but can be enabled with the MirrorEnabler app from these forums. The screen freezes for a moment every 40 or 50 seconds, so iscreen mirroring isn't suitable for gaming yet. After installing the Cast Store app, I was surprised to see so many apps designed for Chromecast.
I don't know what was causing the problem, but the freezing has stopped. Even when it was happening it was very brief (less than a second).
Do you have a black boarder around your picture when mirroring? I don't get it when casting a video but it's there when mirroring.
