Won't cast avi's
Hello, i have tried all of the advices you've given on this page.
But still i can't play avi's, nothing happens on the pc and on the tv there's just buffering.
I have made an exception for chrome.exe in my firewall
What pop up are you getting? Which firewall do you run and did you try our port fixer app?
Ooh, and what antivirus?? Try disabling it and see if they go through!
The antivirus and firewall is Norton. I've tried disabling it.
There is no popup, its just that the video wont start playing, it just buffers on the tv.
@johma Try making sure that your windows firewall is disabled as well. If that doesn't fix it, see if you can ping your chromecast. You'll have to get the ip from your router and if you need assistance I can help guide you through it. Also, what is the make and model of your router??

@johma I should have asked, is this specifically only avi files?
@eyesofnova yes only avi
@johma whats the spec of the pc? OS/cpu
Windows 8, AMD a8-4500M apu
Sorry! I'm bad at checking the forums (I do all the emails!)
We have all ze codecs ;) You can't add external ones. We have to play a game we like to call "Google won't let us do anything fun within chrome".
@johma can you hit help->contact and a log file will be generated! Then you can hit me at team [at] getvideostream [dotcom] and I can dig into it!
@matt , you got mail

I have the same as above. Cannot cast AVI's. I tested mp4's and MKV, no problems but when I try AVI no such luck.
It gives me the loading screen and them pops up the "Videostream, Problems?" screen as if to rub it in haha
Fellow windows 8 user, Intel Core I7. I tired the repair tool also.
Cheers for any help gents.

Kinda sounds like the machine cant transcode fast enough to stream, Ive learned this through watching cpu usage while streaming, it uses a lot more with avis than anything else, I normally just convert the offending avis with handbrake but i understand that isnt a viable option for everyone.
