I would like to get my video and content to my television from my Android phone or tablet but the Amazon Prime Video app does not support Chromecast.
How do you cast video/content to your television from Amazon Prime Video app?

Short answer is: you can't. You can use a laptop (windows/linux/mac/chrome-os) with Chrome browser to cast. Or you can buy an Amazon-Fire hardware device.
Long answer: the "cast your screen" solution now seems to be broken.
Broken? Exactly how?:
So for android devices, I don't know of any way to cast from your Android device to a Chromecast.

The Amazon Prime Video app does not support streaming to Chromecast from the app.
However a less well-known feature of newer Android versions is the ability to "cast your Android device's screen and audio" to the television. Or to put it another way you can "mirror your display" from your Android device to the television.
The "cast your Android device" feature is supported for later versions of Android 4.x (I don't know what version exactly).
Amazon Prime Videos now supports casting to Chromecast straight from inside the official app, it does have a stupid problem that you can't use the phone to adjust the TV volume like you would usually do with Chromecast, it comes up with a stupid surround error when you try, and you have to use the actual TV remote to adjust the volume, but for the sake of this question, it works as mentioned above.
For future reference, I am using an HTC U12 Plus with the lasted firmware, which for this device is Android Pie, and I am using the latest version of Amazon Prime Videos, which is 3.0.268.28447.
As of now, it is possible to cast the contents of that app using Miracast, provided that both the Android phone and the TV supports that. I know for sure OnePlus 5, OnePlus 6, Redmi 5A and Redmi Note 5 Pro and Sony Bravia (don't know model number) supports Miracast, but Motorola G4 Plus doesn't.
I have used Amazon Prime app on the four devices personally to cast them using Miracast. I used inbuilt cast option under Settings app to cast, instead of doing it through the app.
Note: It is also possible to cast Netflix using Miracast, though you won't get any video, but only the audio.
The new Amazon Prime Video app does definitely not support Miracast!
My Android Device is a Huawei P10 Lite with MirrorShare function. My TV is a Sharp with Miracast function and they can be connected.
There was no problem with the former Amazon APP (shopping) which Prime Video was a part of.
I can mirror other content e.g. Netflix, private videos, whatsoever, I can see my Android display on TV, can launch the app but only the sound comes from TV and I can see all of the Android-related displays like "stop", "continue" "forward and backward" and so on but the video is not shown.
