i’m trying to find a good setup to stream the various media files (music, movies and images) stored on my nextcloud server to a chromcast device (in my case a Onkyo AVR) using a android device as a remote control.
Basically, i need a android app that connects to the nextcloud server using webDAV and then streams it to my chromcast device. Unfortunatly, the apps that i find are only covering either one half of that needs: There is the CloudBeats app e.g. that connects your android device to your nextcloud using webDAV (works like a charm from everywhere), but can’t stream the content nowhere; on the other hand, there are numerous apps that can stream LOCAL files on your android device to a chromecast device, but can’t connect to sources in clouds. The closest thing there ist is BubbleUPnP, that can connect to major cloud services such as google, dropbox, onedrive etc. but has no nextcloud support.
So what to do? I’m open for a different setup since all these devices could communicate in one way or another (i can also throw in a nvdia shield hooked to the Onkyo AVR), but i’ve got to tell you, that i’m bit of a noob and don’t have to much of experience.
But i am thank ful for any ideas, i immagine i’m not the only one using a nextcloud server as part of a home media setup. Thank you!
