Media playback from desktop to Pioneer VSX-45 receiver

This is a new receive and the 1st I've had with network access. I am wondering the best method for streaming. Currently I am using Chrome-cast within Plex on the PC or Android device. I have the option to right-click on a media file in Windows Explorer and select Cast To for the receiver but I'm only able to hear the audio this way regardless of video format. Also, in the receiver's input selection is Media Server where I see DLNA and Plex but the same results here, no video.
If Chrome-cast is already the best method available to me then I'm wasting my time exploring these other options. That's just something I don't know so I am hoping someone here does know about this.
