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.

Fierce reduction of complexity is what should be taken note of here, not the functionality provided, and other functionally equivalent (But practically more complicated) alternatives are irrelevant.


Really? How hard is turning on a Roku-like device and pointing it to your wifi router? Same thing you're gonna do on the Chromecast. With services like Amazon and Netflix, you can already queue up videos in a browser and then watch them on the device; nothing special about Chromecast in that regard.

I saw where the CM dev is trying to make it work with every app on the device - now THAT would be cool ;) Still wouldn't have Amazon video, so since I'm a Prime subscriber (mostly for the free shipping with the free streaming being an added bonus), it's never gonna replace a set-top box.
