I don't know if you've seen this yet.. but here's a fix from the developer of Allcast. I tried it and it works.

http://www.reddit.com/r/showbox/comm..._able_to_cast/

1. Uninstall MXPlayer
2. Make sure you install Growbox and run that first.
3. Make sure you install the beta version of Allcast (the one in the link on Reddit).
3. Showbox will now ask you which app you want to stream with.. choose Allcast.

So far I think the most practical option is to install the version available online 3.84.
As yet, no issue found with the older version but with multiple benefits.

With older versions like 3.84 you get "video unavailable" with ALL new movies and shows.

Watch the video through MX Player... But let the Chromecast connect to your device to mirror what you are seeing.bit works flawlessly....just watched Interstellar

Now here's a good idea.

I even bought the premium one hoping that there was a casting option on that. I hope I'm doing something wrong but please I want to be able to cast movies to my roku and my chromecast and now I can't and what's worse I can't even use showbox anymore.

Uninstall mx player and download and growbox! Works as before!!!

Video Open in MX and then share
I always used LocalCast directly from ShowBox to cast to my Chromecast so I was a bit miffed when it started only playing in MX Player, but I just read on Reddit that if you let it open in MX Player, whilst it doesn't have a cast option, you can then click the options menu and 'share' then you'll get the option to open the stream in Local Cast or Allcast or whatever you choose to use and it apparently works a treat.

I'll be trying this tonight.

Does anyone know why Showbox did this though?

I had same problem I now use Firefox download Firefox beta for roku and your phone you can send any mp4 video from your phone to your roku the Firefox app will hold ten videos on your roku so you can push videos to you roku without playing them on your phone cue video the push screen then send to device I use watchseried.to for any TV programming and ultra-vid.com for movies ultra gets movies before most VIP movie sites the best links that work with roku vodlocker,videoweed,vidtome,best streams,movshare,now video vshare,videgg,goog,le,faststream hope this helps I paid £50 for my roku and can watch anything on the net for free no hastle hope this helps

and I don't know wtf Jdmccall02 is on about, how does HD cinema help when you can no longer choose which app to stream to.. I'm guessing you haven't updated.
If you go back to an old version of showbox, you get the 'this video is available yet' problem on 90% of the videos.

Going to 1 star mx tards

I was having problems since showbox upgraded and couldn't use local cast anymore. What worked for me was to uninstall MX player and then download and install Grow box APK from Google and then when selecting external player on showbox,local cast will appwar
