Well it's just a matter of using the right tool for the right job....
Unfortunately the CCast is not the right tool for that situation!
And truth is neither is the Phone if it has no Cell Service.
In that situation you need a mobile device that has a separate HDMI and USB Port and the proper cabling so you can just plug the Phone HDMI into the TV and load the Video from the USB drive. (you need a special cable to plug a drive in)
I have an old Xoom Tablet with HDMI Docking station I use for those situations which has a VERY OLD version of XBMC on it. The 2TB USB drive has all the media on it and I control it from my phone using Yatse Remote.
I rarely use it since I also in most cases have a Laptop with me for work reasons that serves the same purpose as the Xoom.
