Install Kodi on Chromecast
Kodi is one of the best players out there for streaming movies and TV shows on your own network.
Using addons, Kodi can play media files straight from the internet.
You can use it to watch free HD movies, concerts, shows and anything else that’s media related. It is compatible with IPTV, Netflix and a whole bunch of other services.
If you own a Chromecast device you can directly stream movies on your TV screen using an Android smartphone.
It’s not possible to install Kodi directly on Chromecast as there’s no compatible app yet.
Here’s what you have to do:
First of all, you need to install Kodi app on your smartphone. It’s freely available on Google Play.
Make sure it’s working properly and allows addon installation for online TV.
It seems that the 6,1 version of the app can sometimes generate errors. If it’s the case with your smartphone, just rollback to an older version.
Download and install ES File Explorer ( from Google Play) on your smartphone. Continue by also installing LocalCast for Chromecast.
Once you’ve installed the two apps, open ES File Explorer and go to Settings.
Check “Enable Hidden Files” to see all the files.
Now you need to download this file here
After successfully downloading the file, copy it into the Android/Data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/kodi/userdata folder on your smartphone.
Start LocalCast for Chromecast.
Now start up Kodi and play a media file.
Local Cast will automatically activate and you will be able to select Kodi streaming to your TV via Chromecast.
