THIS is the Chromecast solution I feel I have been waiting an eternity for. Best of luck with ongoing development...

Well, Miracast accomplishes a similar result, but as it's live transcoding of your entire screen, it would only have decent video playback on higher-end devices. That and Miracast means you can't do a 2nd task on the phone when the video plays.

From my understanding of Chromecast support right now, Google is slowly rolling out support for different formats and file containers. Not sure how long this will take. MX Player transcoding should mean that anything would be playable, assuming your device can handle live transcoding.

Where is the proof or where did you find that


ALSo. I wanted to ask.

Could you please not do one step at a time?

E.g add Chromecast support but for NORMAL. E.g. Basic support. For normal formats which work. Like avia media player.

Thank you

Supported formats: https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media

As to your question about adding Chromecast support, that would be a question for the developer to answer. @bleu8888

Ok, so what exactly does this mean? Is the developer working on Chromecast support? Any ETA for when it should be expected?

Yes he is working on it; no an ETA has not yet been indicated. Thing is, the developer wants ALL videos to work on Chromcast; this means MX Player must do live transcode on any format that Chromecast doesn't support.

Any update to the progress or challenges? eagerly awaiting any news on this, as it would be super to unlock these features through MX player and ChromeCast!
