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!

What I don't understand is WHY don't you do 1 step at a time?

Why cant you simply right now, add the NORMAL chrome cast features, just MP4 files first.

and then later work on every single file format and transcoding?

Im sure many people would like this option?

Is it possible for a modern quad-core ARM phone/tablet to transcode video formats on the fly? I love MX because it literally plays anything I throw at it, but I don't know if this is the same as transcoding these different formats for casting.

@Krisshp Don't know; it was the developer's decision.
@CAL7 well, for 10-bit I would assume it can't handle it, considering only the more recent phones were able to decode it. For 8-bit, it might be possible if the bitrate isn't too high.

Cant you give this suggestion (which many ACTUALLY want) to the developer? and take it 1 step at a time?...

Thanks

there are many different options out there to use at the moment if you want to stream to chromecast. I agree with the developer having his standards of exactly what he wants his app to be able to do before releasing it... Kudos to him!

I agree with you guys, no need to rush, it must come out when ready... But it would be very nice to be updated about the progress, just to know if we can expect it this month or in december 2015

...... Or just leave us in the dark, alone, crying about our insecurities, struggling to overcome our fear of the unknown, but in the end doomed to the abysses of hell. That's cool too.

Glad to see that there is a possibility of seeing a Chromecast compatible MX Player in the future. Kudos to the devs for wanting to keep the standards up. If you need a beta tester count me in. I have helped with other apps in development. Do love MX Player the best I 've found. Just updated to pro to hopefully help with Chromecast development.
