So I have an MKV file I want to play through VLC, through chrome's VLC extension so I can chromecast it to my TV.
Video is perfect, but no audio. apparently its a known issue but I havent been able to find a fix for it!!
A Chromecast can play back local video files hosted on a computer running Google Chrome with the Chromecast extension installed. To access files hosted on the computer and play them on a Chromecast-enabled TV, a Chrome user simply needs to access their file directory by hitting Command+O on a Mac and select the desired video file. You can also just drag and drop the video into the Chrome Web browser. While you can do so on video types such as MP4, you probably will find difficulty doing the same on other video formats like MKV(It appears MKV files only play video, with no audio). In this article, we aim to give you the possible solutions to cast MKV from Mac to Chromecast smoothly without playback issue.http://www.brorsoft.cn/tutorial/cast-mkv-movies-from-mac-to-chromecast.html
