How to Stream AVI Files to Chromecast 2 for Playback?

Summary: Have you encountered problems when streaming AVI files to Chromecast 2 for playback? Don’t worry, come here to get the solution.

“I have a large number of AVI files. When I use the native cast utility within Plex, the video will not transcode to the Chromecast 2. The audio makes the trip, but the screen remains gray with a mish-mash of mainly purple pixels along the top edge. I have tried varying the connection playback options (all the obvious things) but no deal.”

Google Chromecast is a digital media player that allows you to stream MP4, WebM, MPEG-DASH, Smooth Streaming, and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) video formats on your High Definition Television (HDTV). The AVI files which can’t be played with audio through Chromecast 2 may contain DTS or AC3 audio codec which is unsupported by Chromecast 2. If you would like to stream and play unsupported local AVI video through a Chromecast 2, you have to first of all convert your AVI files into Chromecast 2 compatible ones.

Here Pavtube Video Converter for Mac (review) is suggested. Acting as the Chromecast 2 video converter, it can easily convert various formats, not only AVI, but also MOV, M4V, MPG, MXF, MTS, M2TS, FLV, VOB, WMV, WTV, DVR, DV, SWF, TS, and etc to Chromecast supported video format and tons of audio file. In addition, it supports 150+ video presets for popular devices like the iPad, Android devices, game console, etc. If you are running on Windows operating system, you can depend on the equivalent version- Pavtube Video Converter.
