Question How do I cast (personal) videos to Chromecast?

Hi all

I have an iPad Pro (latest gen) and a Chromecast connected to my TV. The google home app is installed on the iPad and connected to the CC by wi-fi. I want to cast personally recorded video (and home video downloaded onto the iPad) to my TV.

I can't seem to find a way to do this without running the app lottery. I just want to simply cast videos when I need/want to and most of the apps I've looked at only seem to work for streamed commercial video, like Netflix etc.

Can anyone suggest a way to do this or a suitable app - I don't mind paying a one off fee for the app, but I will not subscribe for an occasional use solution.

Thanks!

Run Chrome on the iPad and choose "Cast" from the menu. It does work, but not as good as casting from a Windows PC
