After you’ve downloaded the things you need, using the file explorer of your choice, enable the option to see hidden files. You can find the option to do so on your file explorer’s settings. After that’s been taken cared of, go to the folder containing the .xml file and copy it to Android > Data > org.xbmc.kodi > files > .kodi > userdata.
You’re now good to go. Open Kodi and play any media file. Select LocalCast as the app to use and select Chromecast. You should now be able to play the video on the TV that the Chromecast is plugged into.
