How to Use VLC to Cast Videos From Your PC to Chromecast


There are a few different ways to cast videos from your PC to your Chromecast. One of the easiest methods is to use a program that you might already have - VLC media player.

It's really easy to cast movies to your Chromecast with VLC because all you have to do is open the video and then click a few buttons.

How to Use VLC With Your Chromecast

  1. Download and install the newest version of VLC. Version 3 and newer support Chromecast functionality.
  2. In VLC, navigate to the Playback > Renderer menu and choose your Chromecast from the list, like in the screenshot above.
  3. Open the video you want to send to your Chromecast. You can do this through the Media > Open File... menu in VLC, or by double-clicking the video file if you have VLC set up as your default media player.
You can also open the video first and then connect to your Chromecast if you already have the video playing. If the video doesn't start on its own, press the start button to begin playing it.

If you want to return playback to your computer, go back to the Playback > Renderer menu and choose <Local>. To completely stop playing the video, both on your computer and the Chromecast, just use the stop button like you would to quit playback on your computer.

30 Best Torrent Sites for 2019

A torrent website lets you download torrent files and/or magnet links. You can find free audio books, free movies, free music, free software, free games...you name it.

Torrent websites seem to be pretty volatile, so while one might be working one day, it could very well be down the next.

Want to download torrents anonymously? See this price comparison of VPN services to find a cheap VPN service (not all of them support torrents).

Also, ensure you have a good antivirus program to combat any viruses you could get from these torrent websites. See this list of free portable antivirus software and scan your files frequently.

YIFY Movies: Where to Find Them

YTS.AM (formerly YTS.AG) is the official website for YIFY movie torrents. Every movie on this website is available through a magnet link or .TORRENT file without needing to log on or create any sort of account.

Every movie torrent has two sets of information. One is technical details like if it's in 720p, 1080p, and/or 3D, and the other is the movie related information such as the cast, synopsis, trailer, and screenshots.
You can also read comments about the movie that were left by other YTS.AM users, as well as IMDb reviews that are embedded on the page.
Important: I do not condone using YTS.AM since most of the content is protected by copyright laws in most countries.

Note: Don't forget to download torrents safely with a VPN service (for anonymous torrenting) and an antivirus program or on-demand malware scanner. I recommend uTorrent as an offline torrent downloader and Put.io, Bitport.io, or Seedr as an online torrent client.
