Hello, just new to casting. My example is:
I have an iPhone and a Chromecast in my hotel room (assuming it is working correctly). I want to cast movies I have stored on an online storage site ( I presume google drive would be a good one to use). What is the best app to use on the iPhone for this purpose ?

Thanks kindly for any advice.

I think plex allows you to do this with cloud storage, it's a plex pass feature.
