no video. Same problem as using VLC on a tablet. Nothing I try with
these files work on the Chromecast (I mean I tried several Android apps
some commercial). VLC or others play them just fine locally.

I have some mpeg-ts from Swedish television and they are perfectly castable to my Ultra. But they have AVC (H264) as video codec. It might be that your mpeg-ts have a codec that isn't one of chromecast supported format. TICO is one of them.

If you have "mediainfo" installed check the file with that. avprobe, ffprobe (and to some extent exiftool) also gives some info but I think mediainfo is a lot more versatile. A lot of output formats.

mediainfo file.ts
mediainfo --Output=JSON file.ts
mediainfo --Info_OutputFormats

Some years ago I stumbled on a nice small bash script that converts to chromecast supported format.
