Default Videostream for Chromecast

First sorry for my bad English !

I have now make a fresh install of my PC, then i installe Videostream for Chromecast and Chrome Remote Desktop and both work fine.

Now the Question :

When i want to play a MKV Video my PC have no Codec !!!
But when i want to stream to chromecast the video works fine with sound !

Why Chromecast dont stream sound when is DTS over minidlna ?

OK is my mistake ! i have ask the question false !

When my PC do not support DTS and MKV Files how can transcode my pc DTS or AVI files !
My PC transcode the sound of MKV to Chromcast compatibel.

When my pc doesnt support this files and chromeast doesnt support this files !!
HOW CAN TRANSCODE MY PC IT ????????????


I think chromecast support DTS and AVI Files but only when he will.
When you use google chrome ,Chromecast support every file, thats google it want is all possible

If your PCs default media player can't decode DTS it doesn't mean that other applications on the same PC can't. AFAIK, Videostream has all the transcoding libraries integrated into itself and it does not rely on system codecs, whether they are present or not. That means that Videostream can use it's internal DTS decoder, but your media player obviously can't use libraries from Videostream.
