Pogoplug Cast supports many of the most popular formats for streaming video. We officially support the same list of file types and containers as Google does for Chromecast. These are the formats that we currently support:
Media container formats
- AAC LC
- WAV (LPCM)
- AC-3 (Dolby® Digital™ audio technology)
- E-AC-3 (EC-3, Dolby® Digital Plus™ audio technology)
Audio passthrough means that your TV must support those formats in order to play back Dolby audio. If your video is playing but there is no sound, check the audio format.
Movies that are encoded with the file extension .avi are not currently supported by Pogoplug Cast.
If you are trying to play a video and it does not work the most likely explanation is that you are trying to play an unsupported format. To convert videos to a format that Pogoplug Cast can play, download Handbrake to transcode your video: www.handbrake.fr
