Hello,
from yesterday I have Chromecast and I have one question.
My internet provider streams also TV. I can watch it on Android with MXplayer and on PC with VLC. Tv is streamed e.g. with address udp://@239.255.0.30:5000
Can I somehow stream it to Chromecast from my tablet?


Thank you

Native screen casting to Chromecast is here!

The list of supported devices is short, but there is [EXPERIMENTAL] Enable Mirroring from any device to enable it for unsupported devices (note that many devices/ROMs will not work - there are likely legitimate reasons the official list is short).

If you can't do native mirroring, you can try mirror4cast though when I tried it, it was more like watching a slideshow than a video.

Also VLC has stated that they will support the CCast in some future release....
So that maybe another option once they get it up and running.

Yes, I tried this, it is one of the solutions.
But my tablet has ratio 16:10 and TV is 16:9, so video is not in fullscreen is adapted to the height and quality is not so good.

It will be really cool if VLC or MX Player will support CC.
