I'm going to buy a Chromecast. But friends tell me that I can not play my backed up Blu-ray and DVD ISO files on Chromecast. Is it ture? If it is possible to do it, then how?”   

You may know that you can just drag a local movie file to chrome browser’s address bar and cast it to the big screen with Google Cast the chrome extension via Chromecast. (Read¬†Apple TV vs Chromecast comparison review) Unusually chrome the browser will have no trouble of handling kinds of video types, but not includes ISO files since ISO is not supported by Chromecast.¬†As far as I know it’s not like that you can directly cast iso files to Chromecast for streaming, what you can do is to rip ISO from Blu-ray/DVD to digital movie files like MP4 and use the Chromecast’s local playback workaround to stream the movies to Chromecast.¬†Then how to do it? What tool do we need?   

If you’re looking for ease-to-use ripping tool, check out¬†Pavtube BDMagic- a top ISO to Chromecast¬†Ripper, (Here is¬†Top 5 Best Selling Blu-ray Ripper review) which aims to solve this problem by giving us the ability to remove disc protection and convert¬†Blu-ray, DVD¬†and ISO files to Chromecast compatible formats¬†for casting the movies to Chromecast browser¬†with ease in only 3 clicks.

STEP 2. Choose output format
