Easily cast your local media files to your TV with Chromecast

Chromecast is a great solution to cast videos to your TV but, by default, it only works on sites and apps like YouTube.

What if you want to cast a video stored on your local computer to your TV?

There is an easy solution to this problem.

Open the video on your local computer and drag it to an empty Chrome tab.

Alternatively, you can press CTRL+O (or CMD+O on Mac) and choose the file to cast from the resulting window, or you may enter file:/// in your address bar, navigate to the file you want, right-click it and choose open link in a new tab.

Right-click on any empty point in the new tab and choose Cast.

Then you'll see a Cast to box, allowing you to choose the Chromecast device to cast your video to from a list.


Additionally, by clicking the arrow close to Cast to, you can also cast your desktop.

That's all you have to do.
Enjoy!
