Chromecast on Linux

Is there any software to cast videos to Chromecast? Can someone share a link to download it?

Thanks in advance.

You can use 'google chrome' browser and cast youtube or the entire desktop.

To play a local video through chromecast open your chrome browser and browse to the file with file URL.

Say,

file:///home/user/Videos/myvideo.mp4

Then select cast option from the preference menu and select your casting device. That's all.

The video opens in the default video player

The video opens in the default video player and not the Chrome browser. Cannot cast thereafter.

I just found that VLC has chromecast support, I tried with mine and it works.
VLC-> Playback -> Renderer -> (select your chromecast device).
