Wanted to add, I've figured out how to use bubbleupnp and play audio/video files that are already on my pc. But basically I want to use 1channel/icefilms and stream those things from my PC to chromecast, is that a possibility any other way besides the 'cast entire screen'?
If you install XBMC on your Android device streaming 1channel/Icefilms to Chromecast is no problem.
A few pages back I posted a great free streaming solution that has no time limitations to trans-coding (Avia costs $4.99 and BubbleUPnP transcoding is limited to 20 min in the free version) . This solution plays 1080p content with no hiccups
It uses the latest version of Kodi/XBMC for Android (from XBMC.org) with LocalCast and ESFileExplorer (both free from Google Play store) and a custom PlayerCoreFactory.xml (download link in video decription) . Installation instructions and links to all of files needed can be found in the YouTube video description in the following video.
