In this Movies guide, Windows streams. I’m going to explain to you how to stream movies with the VLC program. To your Google Chromecast.
Make sure you have the latest version of VLC player. Otherwise, you may not be unable to stream.
Install VLC player
We need to be the first to install VLC. If you haven’t already.
You can download the latest version of VLC player from: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.nl.html.
If VLC is downloaded. Start the Setup.exe.
Select English now. And then click Ok.
Then again Next.
And now click Install.
We’re going to have to wait a little bit now.
When the installation is complete. Then click Finish.
VLC is now starting.
You will now receive the above notification.
Stream movies with VLC
The Google ChromeCast should be on. The HDMI and USB cable of the Google ChromeCast must be connected. If you turn on the Google Chromecast. Then it may take a while before it is available. When you see the background. Then the Google Chromecast is ready to stream.
Now go to the VLC program.
Click Play. Dan Renderer.
You’ll now see your devices where you can stream to here. In this example, I stream to the Sport space. The Dining Room is in this case a Google Mini. It only supports sound hence another icon.
Now click Media and then Open.
Find the file for what you want to stream.
You can get this meldign now. Click Ok, don’t warn me again.
The file will now be streamed to your Gooogle ChromeCast.
