Chromecast is one of the finest, portable and convenient tools to stream content from your smart phone, tablet or laptop to your television. It's so affordable that making it one of the most preferred gift through the festive season. Chromecast is a nifty little device, just a tad heavier than a typical pen drive which can be plugged into the HDMI port of a contemporary television and you can use the mobile app of the device to live stream videos and movies, or play music and multimedia files on your television. However, Chromecast doesn’t work with all video or audio formats. Namely, to successfully play AVI video with Chromecast, you have to consider following 2 things.

Chromecast recognizes MP4 and WebM. These two formats have Video codecs H.264 High Profile Level 4.1, 4.2 and 5 as well as VP8. They have audio codecs HE-AAC, LC-AAC, MP3, CELT/Opus and Vorbis. These codecs make these formats recognizable and you can play these files on your television using Chromcast. But other formats will not be recognized. The formats not recognized are AVI, WMV, FLV, MPG, MOV, WTV, OGV and more. If you have an AVI file, then you need a converter or some way to Chromecast the content to TV.
