    Below is a guide I typed up for a buddy, and felt it may be useful for some on this board. The OPO does a fantastic job streaming everything I have thrown at it to my Chromecast. Highly suggest trying this combo of apps out!

    If this thread does not belong here, my apologies.... just let me know and I'll take it down. Figured it would be best to put it here, than having people get hacked apks on the net that may have hacks/malicious items.

    Download and install:

    * LocalCast (Media 2 Chromecast) - I paid the $3-4 to remove the ads / support an amazing app. I don't think this is required for solid playback though.

    * Showbox (movies and shows)

    Once installed:
    Play with localcast.. Stream some music or home videos to your TV to get acquainted.

    Then, open Showbox and find whatever you want to watch. Lots of filters can be used here like year / IMDB rating.

    You can set the quality to high and stream it if your WiFi is good enough. Sometimes I'll pause it at the start to get ahead with the download. Uncertain if this helps.

    When you select the movie or show, it'll open the share menu, select localcast... You'll have to connect to your chromecast first, then it'll ask if you want to stream the URL.
    Say yes. Enjoy your movie/show.

    * I am uncertain how to get the image to show of the app, so I included a link to the pic, apologies *

    I don't do torrents and the like, but I have been told these are overseas torrents... so, I assume the movies and the like are not (uncertain if overseas helps that at all)... hard to imagine they would be. That's why I was saying, if I need to take this down, I am happy too... just have seen a lot of back apk files out there, and assume people are looking for it OR, dont know how to stream it to the chromecast.

    As I know, Chromecast supports to stream a lot of movies and TV shows directly. For example, YouTube, NetFlix, Hulu, Amazon Instant video, on demand and a lot of more, just turn on the channel from the Chromecast. But the only movie you can't stream directly is iTunes movies and TV shows because they are combined with the FairPlay DRM protection. No worries too, you can get an iTunes video converter or iTunes converter for Mac to help you remove DRM. Hope this tip is helpful to all your guys. Cheers.
