Early this morning on Google+, he showed off his latest project, which will allow any audio or video file to be casted to your TV using a CyanogenMod-powered device and the Chromecast dongle. In his demo above he shows it off using the Twit.TV app, but he explains that the process should be the same for any media you can play through any app.

This is exactly what I want out of the Chromecast.

I have a Sony smp n200 that I paid about $50 for, brand new. Does Amazon, Netflix, Youtube, plus about 30 other services, and plays every video I throw at it from a USB stick. And rather than having to drag out a phone or tablet to control it, it came with this handy little thing called a remote control ;)

I really don't see what the big deal is about Chromecast. If I had a laptop close enough so that mirroring a chrome tab was actually convenient, I'd just plug in an HDMI cable and be done with.
