The subject is my question. Is there anyway to play a video_ts folder on chromecast? I have a bunch of video_ts folders from some dvds I have that are currently on my media server. I'd like to play them onto the chromecast. Any chance of this? I am I going to have to rip them all to another format and play through plex (like I'm doing with many other movies right now)

Chromecast can only play H.264 encoded videos (mp4).
https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media

You would need to covert your DVD's to a mp4 video file.

Two options:
You need to encode your videos to a CC compatible format with the likes of Handbrake. Or install a server like Plex/Bubble onto a machine that is transcode on the fly capable. Being that you're doing Video_TS your server will need quite the beefy processor afaik. Either way though, I recommend setting up a media server (Plex fan here).

Could you describe how you got your VIDEO_TS folders visible?

I agree with this...I can't see the folders at all...I have taken to converting them all to mp4 files for now, but if I could play the native VIDEO_TS folder files that would be best.

Plex library browsed in BubbleUPnP, drilled down through the folder until I've got to the video files
