Would you like to stream XBMC through Avia to Chromecast?

Put this https://www.dropbox.com/s/d8pl1adtlo...orefactory.xml in sdcard/android/data/org.xbmc.xbmc/files/userdata

Now Avia is the player allowing you to chromecast.

Wow thanks, worked perfectly. Just a note, I had to clear the cache for my xbmc app to get it to load first.

What your doing with XBMC is not all that different than what you do with aVia using Plex...
The difference is XBMC has no transcoding capability on it's DLNA server so if the files are not CCast compatible you may run into some issues with those.

It will work as will any DLNA server you could be running.

Yeah, thanks for this, but how do I get xbmc to stream to cc? I have this file in where you said, and i have cleared cache for both avia and xbmc, but I see no cc button in xbmc or anything like that. how do I get all 3 to see each other?

You don't stream it from XBMC you are just routing it through aVia....
It would seem that all your doing is adding player profiles to XBMC (android) which may make it work or be seen by aVia.

All I did too get this to work was follow the first post, cleared caches and rebooted my S4. I launched xbmc and When I picked what I wanted to watch avia launched and I hit the cast button. All was good depending on what file type the show in.

Does this simply play local media through XBMC or will it play add on channels also?
