In two ways can you use Chromecast to cast or stream the converted DVD movie/video from PC or Mac to HD TV or display:

A. You can download Chromecast mobile apps (such as AllCast, Avia and Plex) on iPhone, iPad, iPod or Android, or web apps using Google Chrome (on Windows, OS X, and Chrome OS) through an extension on your computer. These apps can help you stream DVD movies by the Chromecast to TV within a local version of the Chrome browser.
