Re: Cannot cast photos from google pixel phone to 50' roku tv

You likely are running into a file type/format incompatibility.

From https://support.roku.com/article/208755108:

File types supported by Play on Roku

Play on Roku supports the following file types:

  • Photos: JPG and PNG
    Video: MP4 (MPEG-4 Pt 14), MOV, M4V
    Music: MP3 and M4A (*DRM-protected music files, such as M4P, are not supported)

  • Note:
    • Only videos captured with your mobile device are supported.
    • Non-standard aspect ratio videos (such as those taken with Instagram) may not be supported.

Make sure your files are either JPG or PNG, and make sure the aspect ratio (or even resolution) is a standard one.
