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'?

BubbleUPnp should be able to cast the web streams to your chromecast, you will need to put a bubbleUPNP playercorefactory.xml (post #229) into the appropriate folder.

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.

So I put the playercorefactory file into the appropriate folder. When I start a 1channel stream, it loads and flicks like its sending it somewhere or opening it somewhere, but didn't actually start anything on my CC. How do I from my PC point it to the chromecast from bubble? Or do I need to control it from bubble on my android or what? I just don't see how I get it to go from XBMC on my pc (with the bubble player core) to my CC?

I did this method and it works great. But I'd really like to be able to do it from my PC. I have bubble server running on this PC and just want to get the streaming video from here to my CC.

Thanks!

One question...If I want to use Kodi's internal player again, the only way is to change the name of that file that I've added?

The instructions were for android. I have not been able to use the playercorefactor.xml any other way

What I want to know is what does the rendering/decoding, the chrome cast or the phone/tablet? if its the phone/tablet why not just screen cast (mirroring)?

i have tried this, but it dosent work for p2p streams that are using sopcast and acestream. Do you think there is a workaround for this problem? Localhost is telling me when i try to play such file (live channel) that this format is not supported. Thank you!

Does somebody can provide an easy solution in order to play first on the internal player and switch later on TV?
