    Cast From Android (Avia Player) To Chromecast

    If you are anything like me, you purchased a few chromecasts as soon as they were released to the public. Furthermore; you have searched for months to discover a way to get XBMC, from your mobile, to CAST to your TV. Sadly, thus far there has been little to no progress in this area. That is... we didn't know what we already had.

    XBMCHUB.COM's sister site, XBMCANDROID.COM, did a lot of work last year to bring the masses something called The XBMC XAF Build (for android). This fork of XBMC provided users the ability to select an EXTERNAL PLAYER to use within XBMC. Initially this provided our community the ability to play HD content as the feature hadn't been available in the official builds at that time.

    Well, to our surprise, a user on YouTube pointed out that this XAF BUILD was also able to be used to bake CHROMECAST functionality into your mobile android XBMC experience. Confounded, I tested and verified its success.

    How is it done?

    1) Go to XBMCANDROID.COM and download the appropriate XAF build.

    2) Install this on your mobile android device.

    3) Open XBMC at least once and allow it to load cmpletely before closing it.

    4) Navigate to sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.xbmc/files/XBMC/user data (contrary to popular opinion you will need root access to get into this folder)

    5) Place this file in that directory:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/d8pl1adtlo...orefactory.xml

    6) Now go to the Play Store and install and app call AVIA media player. (Activating chrome cast feature costs $2.99) make up your own mind... I'm not responsible for your decision.

    Once done... Open xbmc, install the XBMCHUB.COM WIZARD, open an addon, and play a video. Now it will open in AVIA and provide you with a Chrome cast option.

    THIS DOES WORK

    Special thanks to Vincent Russell - the YouTube user who's video pointed this out to us.

    No, that is the wrong video, is that yours? The original one was done by Vincent Russell like it says in the post above. The one you posted looks like a copy cat video. Vincent Russell's video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vS-7hwYe4nw

    Depends on your set up and desire. If you would rather NOT have a dedicated XBMC device Then this allows you to spend $30 and have Netflix.. Hulu... XBMC... Ext.

    Also NO... this isn't sending chrome cast content TO XBMC. It is sending XBMC content AS chrome cast content.

    Anyone have a method for Chromecasting XBMC without rooting your phone? Most expensive phone I've ever bought and I'm not about to void my warranty.
