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” transcoding)
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.
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.
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.
if Fire TV and DLNA Renderers are already installed just install as usual.
else use the Untouched version to install them. Remove it and install the modded version
