Default Is screen mirroring on rooted cc possible?

At the moment I connect my nexus 5 to the TV with a slimport adaptor and using mx player any video on my phone can be played on my TV. I understand this isn't possible with a non rooted chromecast at the moment, but I have the chance to buy a rooted chromecast. My question is would I be able to play any video mx player supports and send it to a rooted chromecast?

MX Player, no.
But on a rooted Chromecast with PwnedCast v1.1 ROM installed (it includes KyoCast) and the proper patched AllCast version, videos in formats that Chromecast supports that can be viewed in Gallery can be Shared to AllCast and play on Chromecast.

Keep in mind that streaming content from phone/tablet is not Chromecast's primary playback intent.
