Using Chromecast devices

Post by m1is »

So I setup one of these devices, have the Android app up and running and can watch on my phone but I don't see a cast icon so I can cast to one of my Chromecasts. Shouldn't I see the icon to cast? If not what do I need to do to be able to cast to Chromecast?

You don't cast... when people are mentioning the new Chromecast (with google tv) one runs the app directly on the new Chromecast. If you have an old chromecast (without google tv) you will most likely be out of luck without some other device as a go between as chromecast doesn't support the audio and video formats used by most tv broadcasts.

Looks like I can do this with Plex, works like a charm.
