streaming with a remote server doesn't work

When I try to cast a movie from a remote server (a seedbox) with my iPhone, it doesn't work. The movie is launched but stops a few seconds after. If I play the same movie without chromecast, just on my phone, it work very well!

I've the same issue when I try to play a media with Plex Media Server on Google Chrome (with or without using chromecast) BUT when I use Plex Media PLAYER (for Windows) or Google Chrome Extension, I've no problem and I can watch all the movie !!
So I can't use my Chromecast to watch any media on a remote server (because Chromecast is not available with Chrome Extension or Plex Media Player) and I don't know why.
Firstly, I thought it was my connection but why it work with Plex Media Player ??
I already tried to change the remote quality but nothing changes, even with a very bad remote quality !
For information, I've no problem to cast a movie which is on my local computer (with any player).

Sorry if my english is not perfect.
