ChromeCast

Post #1 by Tron » 4 years ago

Picked up ChromeCast this weekend. Pretty cool. You can stream video and pictures for any PC or phone or tablet on your network right to the TV. It has it's limitations, but they are updating it, and apps that use it all the time. So far it seems pretty cool.....

This thing is so cool! I can upload video to "RealPlayer Cloud" and then I can play movies on my phone, tablet, computer, or TV. I can cast my own movies, or any movie I find on the internet to the TV too. I can cast pictures from all devices to the TV as well.... This is very nice. I use it a lot. And for $35 it is a deal!

As this gets more popular, more developers should include support too.... I love mine....
