Default How good is chromecast for playing videos store on the phone?

I have all my movie content downloaded using tTorrent to my phone and play them with DicePlayer or VLC for Android. How well will Chromecast be to play these movies on the TV using Diceplayer or VLC?

You can't use those apps. You need all cast, avia or local cast. Also Chromecast basically only supports mp4's. It plays pretty well but keep in mind this isn't what the Chromecast was designed for. It was meant to cast videos directly from the internet. This will give you significant battery drain over casting from the web directly.
