I generally use the Mozilla plugin from VLC in order to play local video content within a chrome tab. This allows for casting to a Chromecast device.

Although VLC is able to play AVCHD files, the browser plugin does not.

I'm looking for a way to play AVCHD files in a chrome tab without converting them to another format.

1 Answer 1


The Videostream chromecast plugin plays all local video I've thrown at it so far including AVCHD (from cpu usage appears to transcode on the fly).
