Default Chromecast

I'm thinking of getting a chromecast dongle for my tv and just wanted to check some info first.

1. I want to wireless send video to my TV
2. I use showbox & mobdro and mxplayer will these work and is it smooth?
3. Will it also wireless play audio from poweramp?

Any info would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
Kev

I think in general you're barking up the wrong tree. The way chrome cast works is it pulls content directly from the Internet. What you're describing is like Apple Air Play (or some such thing).

Chrome cast is great, but really your device acts like a controller, that's why only certain apps are supported, because the chrome cast has to run them "onboard" so to speak. I use it with Netflix a lot.

Hope that helps.

Never tried poweramp but showbox will stream to it. Just make sure youe media player is allcast or Avia. Never had an issue with either or showbox
