Image from store cast player
Description from store Now you can play local videos (movies on your desktop) on Chromecast (or Chrome) and control (play, pause, etc) from your mobile device. All you have to do is drop some directory with .MP4 files (supports subdirectories) or drop the .MP4 file into your Chrome browser. You can choose the movie directly on Chrome or access http://cinez.me/p from your mobile and the control will be in your hand. ALLOW EXTENSION: Access chrome://extensions/ and CHECK "Allow access to file URLs" from "cast player" extension. CHROMECAST USERS!! This is the solution to play local files in your Chromecast (with subtitles). Just cast the Chrome tab and voilà! SUBTITLES support! You just need to have an .SRT file with the same name as the movie and in the same directory.

  • (2019-10-25) ger baz: subtitles play on chrome tab while only the video on chromecast
  • (2019-10-22) Dave Duffner: Used to be great but with every Chrome update it gets less and less worth dealing with!!
  • (2019-10-13) Kim YongHyun: This is a great program for working with mp4 files that mkchromecast can't. It also shows subtitles such as Korean and English. One problem is that subtitles disappear when "optimize full screen" option is selected. Except for this, there seems to be no problem playing mp4. Can you fix it?
  • (2019-09-04) Patrick Gough: A useful add on when other methods of casting, etc dont work. started having problems w Amazon Prime wont play vid or cast w chrome claims old chrome version but its a hiccup on their end. However, you can bring amazon upin chrome as usual, instead click to play, drop it in the cast player tab and voila, both player and casting worked.
