How to Cast Movies to Chromecast?

This article introduces methods and tips to cast common videos and DRMed iTunes videos to Chromecast. Allcast and TunesKit DRM Media Converter are introduced in this article.

Chromecast is developed by Google Company. It is the cheapest stream multimedia devices in the market. But it won't do less than others, like Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV etc. Chromecast supports a lot of online Channels and can be used to sync any common videos, photos, audios to TV set. It's welcome for many young people. In this article, I want to introduce some methods and tips to cast the common videos or even iTunes DRMed videos to Google Chromecast.

Part 1 Cast Common Videos to Chromecast

AllCast is my primary choice to cast common videos to Chromecast. It will cast your iPhone's local photos, music, and videos to your TV. You can also stream them from popular cloud providers such as Dropbox, Instagram, Google+, and Google Drive.

Download allcast on your iPhone or iPad from iTunes app store, then connect your iPhone or iPad with the Chromecast under the same WIFI network, it would be easy to cast the common videos, music, photos to Chromecast and then watch them on TV. Allcast also supports casting the videos, music, photos to other stream boxes, like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Sonos, Apple TV, Samsung/Sony/Panasonic Smart TV, Xbox 360 etc.

Part 2 Cast iTunes DRMed movies to Chromecast

Movies we bought or rented from iTunes are DRM protected by Fairplay DRM protection, which means it can be played on Apple's products only. If you want to watch iTunes movies on TV, you can only sync the iTunes movies to TV via Apple TV. However, with TunesKit DRM Media Converter , you can easily get rid of the annoying DRM protection with nearly 100% original quality preserved.

TunesKit DRM Media Converter removes DRM protection from both iTunes purchased and rental movies, TV shows. It can convert iTunes DRM M4V videos to unprotected MP4 format with fast speed and excellent quality.

Apple TV VS Chromecast

Apple TV is developed by Apple. It's a perfect companion for iOS devices. If you own a lot of music, movies or TV shows on iTunes, the Apple TV lets you access all that content on your TV and connected sound system. And if you use iTunes Match, all your cloud-stored music is available as well. iTunes Radio gives you a free radio option in your living room too.

The airplay function of Apple TV is also awesome. However, Apple TV is not very good choice if you also like to rent or buy movies from other online channels, like Amazon or Vudu. The $69 of Apple TV is much more expensive than Chromecast's $35.
