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.

So I buy this $35 device... then I need to go and buy a couple hundred dollar tablet. Doesn't make any sense.

You can use chromecast with a laptop. Just download the chromecast extension for chrome.

I don't run Windows on my laptop and even if I did I don't want to use it for that.

You're only right about the last part. What you said doesn't make sense.

It makes perfect sense. Its a device that requires another device to stream content to it.. so I then need something to stream stuff to it. That's so hard to understand?
