I recently purchased a Chromecast to use in conjunction with my Windows 7 laptop and Kodi. I've read and watched several tutorials from here and other places, and I've yet to have any real success. The best I could come up with is the mirroring thing, but it was choppy, distorted, and laggy. I'm beginning to think it's the placement of the modified playercore file. I've seen a variety of folders where it should go, and it's unclear which folder is the right one. I'd like to hear from anyone who has had success getting the Chromecast working with Windows and Kodi with decent playback especially with HD movies and shows. Don't care much about live streams, but HD is important. Big thanks to all the devs and their addons, and to those who help those of us not tech savvy enough to assist !
