Windows 10: Software to send Audio FROM phone TO TV / Chromecast

    Software to send Audio FROM phone TO TV / Chromecast

    Hi there

    seems plenty of stuff around to GET audio from TV TO a phone --I'd like it the OTHER way around --FROM PHONE TO TV.

    I can use Bluetooth for a Bluetooth speaker - but Bluetooth is pretty horrible compared with decent HD audio -- and the top end phones have quite decent DAC's in them making transmitting HD Audio worthwhile.

    I want it primarily to CAST Internet radio streams (.OPML streams) to my TV speakers - chromecast should be able to receive the audio.

    I have no problem with local Audio FILES (using PLEX) and VIDEO (again using PLEX) but there's no option for capturing and streaming Internet radio either.

    There's a Tunein app on the phone that can do it (sort of) but the interface is so horrible (can't select stations by genre etc and no way to save favourites for example) so if I can stream the audio output from my phone which captures Internet streams from Logitech media server and Cantata / MPD streams I'd be happy.

    So any ideas -- please note it's from PHONE TO TV not the other way around. I've got the latest Chromecast device too.

    Here's the sort of stream I want -- I like the Football (Soccer) stuff from BBC R5 Live

    line URL=",ogg,mp3,wmpro,wma,wmvoice&partnerId=16&serial=1a20f32a2c 429a2f4027ab0d4ed25c17" icon="" text="BBC Radio 5 live 909 (News)" type="audio" />

    Not sure how to fiddle with PLEX to get that into a playable stream -- I'm sure someone out there has fiddled with this stuff.

    Does Microsoft Edge run on the phone and allow "Cast media to device" as it does on the desktop version?

    Hi there --sorry -it's an ANDROID Samsung S5 phone so only chrome.

    Chrome can cast but that means getting some type of RDP from phone to access desktop but the music server is actually doing the music streaming. I've got the music playing fine on the phone and can also play to Bluetooth -- it's to the TV speakers where I want to route the output to.

    I've managed to get the stream for BBC R3 classical -- but it's a too convoluted process to do it manually

    but here it is and it plays fine in VLC.

    Open VLC and choose Open network stream and paste in the URL.

    BBC R5 Live (sport)

    and BBC R5 sport extra

    From there I can now cast it -- but it's going to be a lot of work so I hope there's a better way !!!.

    added -- a link for some European Radio stations too. Loads of links including BBC local stuff.

    Belgium has separate list
