I love to stream movies on line from Primewire- and have been using the cords from Laptop to TV which work brilliantly.  Have since purchase a chromecast, which works fine with Youtube!   I cannot get chromecast to cast my movies from Primewire, anyone out there who may be able to shed some light on this for me, would be SO appreciated.

I'm going to assume your using a computer tongue-out
When you Chromecast from Youtube it has native support on the website, meaning you don't have to install the Chromecast addon for it to work
On your computer, download the Chromecast Google Chrome extension and install it (Link here)
Then when your on primewire you should be able to see the Chromecast icon up the top right of your screen, click this, then "Cast Tab" and you should be able to see it on your TV

Thanks so much for the prompt reply.  Yes I am using a Laptop to the TV.  I do have both chromecast and the extension installed, but no luck.  It is like there is just something not quite right.  Primewire seems to connect then promptly stops?  Cannot figure it out at all..
