    Default Avia error message

    Strange issue! Ive got an mp4/aac file on my gpad 8.3. When i try to stream it through chromecast, i get a message stating the file type is not supported by Chromecast. But then i pull it up in real player and it streams. Weird right? Avia has worked before. Wouldnt be an issue to just use real player but it makes me buffer constantly. Any thoughts?

    It most likely is not using a supported video codec. Here are the codecs: https://developers.google.com/cast/s...ed_media_types

    RealPlayer does transcoding (as does Plex) and Avia does not so that is why you can play unsupported codecs on those but not on Avia.

    I've had the exact problem too. The weird thing is, is that if I download an mp4 file on my laptop and then using my phone on the avia app, if I go to that laptop on the network and browse videos and try to cast they video I get the same error message you are. But if I download the exact same mp4 file directly onto my phone and cast it, it will play flawless.
