Hi. I am novice in Android development. For now, I am trying to understand and modify various example applications. I found 'CastVideos-android-master' sample application, which can cast some predefined and stored somwhere videos to Chromecast. But I am not able to find any example or principle explanation, which allows to cast local video(s). I understand that in first case Chromecatest gets only url of the video and 'plays it itself'. But local video? I searched high and low but didn't found anything. I myself used DrectCast app, which is unfortunatelly discontinued and not working on my android version and now i use BubbleUPnP, which is good but too complex. My need is to cast playlists of music videos stored on external card and manage those playlists. So I would try to create it myself. Thanks for any suggesions.

Finally I googled a solution. The trick is that I must setup a simple http server inside my app to provide streaming access to the videos.
