There are two methods you can stream content to Chromecast via your Kodi-linked Android device: the long, yet power-friendly method; or the rapid, but battery-intensive, route.
- First, you need to download ES File Explorer, Kodi, LocalCast and .xml file PlayerFactoryCore.
- Now open up the ES File Explorer, open Settings |Display settings and be sure ‘Show hidden files’ is ticked.
- Next, be sure your Kodi or XBMC media center is linked to the Kodi app.
- Once completed, navigate into ES File Explorer again and open the Downloads folder.
- Here you should find the PlayerFactroyCore.XML file you downloaded previously (if not, go to where your downloaded files are saved)
- Copy the PlayerFactoryCore.XML file and visit Android | Data and search for either “org.xbmc.kodi” or “org.xbmc.xbmc” depending on which streamer you use. Kodi will be “org.xbmc.Kodi”
- Once open, click from Files | .kodi (or .xbmc, depending which one you’ve used) | user data and then paste the PlayerFactoryCore.XML, file into this folder.
- Open Kodi and go to the video file you want to view.
