Cast videos from computer

Subtitles can be given as an optional second argument. If no subtitle argument is found, RaspberryCast will attempt to find a subtitle file with the same name as the video. In the case of TV shows and movies, RaspberryCast will attempt to match the video with an appropriate subtitle file. This behaviour can be disabled in the configuration file.
