Finding movie and audio to send to Google's Chromecast 2 proved to be a hassle, especially when you wanna cast DVD Movie to smart TV with Chromecast 2. As we know, bulk of DVDs are protected by DVD copy protections, which means you are not allowed to copy DVD movies to your TV directly. In addition, majority of TVs including Samsung TV, LG TV, Panasonic TV, Sony TV, Vizio TV, etc all own their preferred video formats, but DVD (.VOB) is not accepted by any of them.

Plus, you need make sure you have a supported operating system before installing the Google Cast Extension on your computer.

Although Chromecast 2 can cast local files with the Google cast browser extension and usually chrome the browser will have no trouble of handling kinds of video types, but also not includes DVD. As far as I know it's not like that you can directly cast movies played from the laptop's DVD drive, what you can do is to rip DVD to digital movie files first. - Hivimoore DVD Ripper is the best choice: isharesky.blogspot.com/2017/01/play-dvd-on-tv-via-chromecast.html
