ISO file streaming to Chromecast

Just got my Chromecast, I have a lot of ISO files stored on my desktop computer and some on external hard drive. Now I need an app to stream all my iso files. Already tried plex, but there is no support for ISO files. Any help?

Chromecast supported file formats

Although there are many different ways for you to stream local video to Chromecast via Videostream app, the Plex Media Server or the Chrome Browser Tab, however, the files that you plan to stream to Chromecast must be included in Chromecast supported file formats listed below:
Media Container formats: AAC, MP3, MP4, WAV, WebM
Video codecs:
. H.264 High Profile Level 4.1(the processor can decode up to 720/60 or 1080/30)
. VP8
Audio codecs
. HE-AAC
. LC-AAC
. MP3
. Vorbis
. WAV(LPCM)

To stream unsupported ISO files with Chromecast, you will need a third-party video conversion app such as Pavtube BDMagic for Windows (top Blu-ray Rippers Review)/Mac to transcode ISO files to Chromecast favorable file formats with compatible container, video codec and aduio codec listed above. Then you will have no problem to stream converted files to Chromecast with either Videostream app, Plex Media Server or the Chrome browser tab.

Besides ISO files, you can also use the program to convert other incompatible file formats such as Tivo recordings, MKV, VOB, FLV, AVI, WMV, etc to Chromecast streamble file formats.
