    Hey guys, i'm looking for best android apps to stream videos to chromecast. The problem is that most of them only support mp4 files. I found only one that supports all file formats, it transcodes the file on the fly on your phone and streams directly to chromecast. its called Megacast. Does anyone know anything similar?

    So you're looking to stream video files that you have saved on your phone?

    I've mostly used mine to watch netflix or a movie rented through Google Play.

    However, I know using the Chromecast app, I've played a game or two just by telling it to mirror my phone screen. I would assume that should work, since the phone's playing the video and just sending what's on the screen to the tv?
