Can Chromecast stream 1080p from VLC?
Looking at getting a Chromecast to replace my HTPC. I almost exclusively use my HTPC with VLC to watch 1080p TV shows. Can I stream 1080p mkv files to my TV instead of the HTPC? Does the DD 5.1 audio go over the HDMI properly?
I would use my normal desktop PC to stream and get rid of the HTPC if this was possible.

VLC is working on supporting Chromecast for iOS, Android, and desktop. https://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic...19120&p=403349
So, currently no, but in the near future. The iOS version is supposed to be done first and could be ready as early as this month. No estimates for the Android and Desktop versions.
In the meantime, you could use Plex if that appeals to you.
