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.

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.

The Chromecast plugin doesn't require Windows. It will work on OSX and on a Chromebook Pixel.

It sadly requires the use of Chrome, though.

The chromecast is not for you then. Not every product has to be for everyone.

The plugin seems to be available for linux in the chrome webstore. I've read reports that it works, but dont have a chromecast to try it.
