Able to cast live streams - only HLS (*.m3u8)

Hi dev!
I'm developing a Chromecast app for personal use. I'm trying to cast m3u8 stream but I can't figure out how to make it work. I use the custom receiver app from GitHub but it can't play the m3u8 stream that I want it to because the stream doesn't have CORS header. In Chromecast Dev Console I get "access-control-allow-origin" error.

Could please give me a clue of how I would be able to make this work? I am asking you because your awesome app VEGA Cast can play the stream without problems. 

hi. just wondering if you could help. not sure whether its a Vega Cast problem..but thought id ask and see..

I've been using this app to stream Showbox to my Chromecast, and up until recently I've never had a problem but now every time I try to cast via Vega Cast it says 'failed to load media on the cast device.' it possible this is a Vega Cast problem? I've looked all over the internet and I cant find anything to help me. 


When can we expect a new update?

Hi I am looking for a complete vcast playercorefactory XML for helix build of kodi,I am currently using an mxplayer playercore factory XML along side a very clever app called grow box which fools kodi into thinking I have mxplayer installed ,when I click on a link it then throws up the option to play the best chromecast app VCAST,would be easier though if I had ur XML lol

vCast + XBMC/Kodi

To send videos from Android version of XBMC/Kodi  to Chromecast we can use vCast. To enable such functionality we need to configure external players (

Add next player in playercorefactory.xml file:

<player name="vCast" type="ExternalPlayer" audio="false" video="true"> 

And set next rules:

<rule internetstream="true" player="vCast" />
<rule video="true" player="vCast"/>

Sample config file with vCast as external player

Sample config file with multiple players

If you have any suggestions ot troubles with it - add comment
