I don't know how to reference a down loaded video when I pull up Chromecast. If I go to the down loaded video and click on the video, it gives me various options to run the video with but Chromecast is not one of the program options.

You have to also have your chromecast device set up. If you do,

  1. Connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast.
  2. Open the Chromecast app .
  3. In the top left corner, touch the navigation drawer .
  4. Touch the Cast Screen button.
  5. Select your Chromecast.
