Videos

Please be aware that the Chromecast only supports a couple of formats. It can read containers like mp4, mkv, 3gp and m4v, but all these containers can use different codecs. If you can’t hear the audio of a video, then the audio codec is not supported. If you can’t see the video but hear the audio, then the video codec is not supported.
(I am looking into “on-the-fly” trans-coding)

 Music

If you cast from your device or DLNA, the album cover will be displayed on the TV. The queue and playlists work with all files but were added to easily set up music for your next party and don’t worry about it.

Pictures

On a Chromecast, Nexus Player or another Cast device
You can rotate, zoom and pan pictures easily from the “Now playing” screen, just touch the button with the four arrows.

Subtitles

If you use a Chromecast, Nexus Player or another Cast device
You can easily add subtitles. You can download them easily inside the app from Opensubtitles.org. Subtitles in the same folder will be added automatically. You can set a dedicated subtitle folder which will be searched when you start a video. Subtitle timing, font, background, and color can be changed.
You can change the subtitle encoding in the settings, e.g. for Arabic subtitles choose UTF-8
Internal subtitles which are inside the video container don’t work YET

Wireless headphones (beta)

Touch “Route audio to phone” on the “Now playing” screen, to listen to what you are watching on your phone. This feature is in beta: it might work most of the time.
