    Tried going back to Kodi because I couldn't find some shows on ShowBox. But the usual instructions for casting is to use LocalCast, and every single video I've tried so far results in either my lg tv saying the file is "invalid" or Chromecast saying the video format it's not supported. With ShowBox I was using All casting which didn't create issues with either the smart TV or Chromecast.

    Any advice? What do I put in the playercorefactory.xml file for AllCast? Or is there a setting I can enable in LocalCast?

    Some Kodi related sites and hosts closed down abruptly. You may not be able to connect to your usual providers. One of my favourites, Phoenix, pulled the plug.

    I know I had issues installing Exodus. Saw a few recent notes in the instructions saying it's recently unavailable.

    But the playback issue I had was something different.

    I noticed issues with my android box recently, seems like tvaddons is no longer viable.

    I had no problem playing the video on question on my phone. The problem was with streaming it to either my Chromecast or LG smart TV. With ShowBox I use AllCast as the player, then select the device to cast to. With Kodi you end to using LocalCast. The configuration for (playerfactorycore.xml) does not include an entry for AllCast.
