OK guys, this is something I discovered by chance. Basically I was staying in bed late this Sunday morning, did not feel like getting up, cold, snowing - so i ended up playing with my mobile phone, wondering if I could watch streams on my Android. I downloaded the Ace Player from the play shop, and then I found an ace player football stream. When I clicked on the link the Ace player engine started, and after it had finished buffering it asked me which player I want to use in the "select player" pop up, and it opened a list consisting of all the available video players I had installed on my mobile, including VLC, ... and also chromecast and Amazon fire (which are connected to my TV). So I clicked on one and behold!! It works, I have been streaming now for 20 minutes and it works fine :) .

I tried streaming directly to ma Samsung TV, but that did not work, I got an error message there.
The Chromecast worked, but then it stopped, so I tried the Amazon fire and that did the trick!

One important thing to remember: Do not tick the "remember choice" box, that way you can keep choosing where to stream to!

So there you have it, I don't know if this is a known thing, but for me it is new and an interesting alternative to play streams on my TV

Cheers :)
