Default Great-ish!

Hi,
Tested for a while this method using BubbleUpnp client/server (premium user) and it works pretty fine. The great thing is that it really seems to send not supported formats to the server for the real time transcoding. At last a (not yet perfect but already good) method to stream xbmc adddons to chromecast.

Very good work.
Thanks.
Pino.

This is the build of XBMC I am using http://mirrors.xbmc.org/releases/and...rmeabi-v7a.apk on a Nexus 7 unlocked not rooted with stock Android 4.4.2 I used XBMC Hub Wizard to install 1Channel. Some of the links in 1Channel don't work also I've found that other add-ons like MashUp seem to crash XBMC so far I'm researching how to fix this but so far I've watched like 4 movies using this method. You have to make sure that the BubbleUpNP server is setup on your windows computer or some videos won't play at all. Make sure to open BubbleUPnP first and connect to the Chromecast before you send the videos from XBMC to BubbleUPnP.

I wrote a more detailed guide on how to do it on my original post a few up.

Can you explain the server side setup? So can't play any local content on my phone with bubbleupnp?

So I need a PC switched on and the server running to cast files?

Yes. I have a Ubuntu box and a Windows 7 PC, both with BubbleUpnp Server installed. Tests have been done using the windows 7 box.
Install. then configure it on your android Bupnp in Settings -> networks section (set a login and password on the server connecting to <SERVERIP:58050>..
You need to be a premium user. I bought the app cause it's worth every cents.
Ask if you have problems.
Get installers from here:

Would it be possible to do the following in playercorefactory file is to find the complete action with activity name and put it in the playercorefactory file so when opening a stream it would show the popup box to select which app you want to use. I think its better than having to longpress every time.

Only problem is I dont know the acitvity name

Got avia set up with XBMC and it's playing all my supported videos fine. However, airplay audio from XBMC is not being sent to avia to be able to cast to chromecast. How do I set this up?

Thanks in advance
