Google possibly working on $35 Chromekey, a wireless streaming HDMI dongle


Saturday 08th of June 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
According to some recent rumors, Google may be working a wireless streaming device called a Chromekey. Originally, the device was supposed to be shown off  at Google I/O, but as we all know, Google wanted to focus on services, not hardware. Now that I/O is over, though, we may soon see the wireless streaming dongle.Supposedly, the Chromekey will attach to an HDMI port on your television and allow you to stream content from Google Chrome or your Android device to your TV screen.  The Chromekey also connects to a USB power adapter and your WiFi network for power and streaming. You can “cast” content from your device to your big television screen, such as YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, etc. Plus, you know it would have some heavy Google Play integration, especially with the movies and TV shows. Some apps can also have the cast functionality built into them, so you can enjoy Angry Birds on your 55 inch LED TV.The rumors say that the Chromekey will be available directly through Google Play for $35, but you can also purchase it from Best Buy in stores and online, as well as Amazon.

Initial chromecast tests


Thursday 25th of July 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Credit to Amazon for fast shipping as my chromecast arrived early this morning. I'm still playing with it but wanted to answer some initial questions from people. It works fine connected to an AVR instead of the tv. I'm using a Denon but most modern should work. Not exactly unexpected but several people had asked. Hulu (web) doesn't work. I get audio via the cast tab of chrome but no video. In fact it appears none of the web videos can be sent via chrome. This may be that the network isn't fast enough. Ironically the help file says to try 5ghz but the chromecast doesn't support it. HBO Go is also unsuccessful. Performance on Android (GN II and Nexus 7) are great with youtube, netflix and Music. Not much else to try yet. Chrome from Windows is clearly beta as they said as it's slow and buggy. It doesn't support volume via hdmi so you can't change the audio on the receiver itself. You get a second volume control on the chromecast but once that reaches maximum it suggests you increase the volume on the receiver. I didn't receive my Netflix code yet but for $35 - netflix discount it's a

Android Central Application


Saturday 02nd of November 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I was thinking today that I wanted to listen to the Android Central podcast from yesterday; which made me think of a suggestion for the app. I'm sorry if this post is in the wrong category... Anyway, my suggestion is... Wouldn't it be nice to list listen or even watch the podcast through chrome cast? Whether it be live through the application or the recording afterwards. I'm sure it's not nearly as easy as it may seem, but it is just a suggestion. Thanks! Posted via Android Central App

Chromecast - casting from Chrome


Sunday 03rd of November 2013 / androidforums.com
I have Chromecast up and running through my S4 running Android 4.3. However, I cannot seem to find a way to cast from the Chrome browser on my S4. Swore I had already done this with my S3.Can this not be done? I'm assume I can browse the web on Chrome and cast it to my TV via Chromecast.

Can't cast from mobile devices.


Saturday 07th of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
For some reason, I cannot cast from my iPad or my Samsung Galaxy S3. I can cast from Chrome on my pc. Both devices connect to the same wireless AP. It was working before. The Cast button appears on my ipad when using Hulu or Netflix, but the Chromecast device is not listed. On my Android phone, the button doesn't even appear. Only thing that has changed is that I just recently changed ISP providers from ATT Uverse to Charter. I was using ATT's router, but am now using a Linksys WRTU54G-TM. I've tried resetting the Chromecast device. It shows as connected. Anyone else have this problem?

Poor performance when casting a tab from Chrome. Anyone using ChromeOS?


Wednesday 22nd of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
What specs do you have on your laptop? Have a windows 8 laptop at 1.4ghz and it stutters non stop when casting a tab. According to Google support page for minimum requirements to tab cast for Windows they recommend 2ghz+ and for Chrome OS they just have listed the chromebook pixel, hp chromebook 14, acer c720, and c720p. I looked up the specs for those and they are all 1.4ghz. I would like to pick up a Chromebook since they are cheap enough but not sure if I should trust that 1.4Ghz on Chrome OS is going to cast a tab flawlessly compared to a 1.4Ghz on windows 8. If some people could chime in and tell me what specs and OS you are using and if you're able to cast a tab with no problems. Thank you!

Casting HTML5 video added to Chrome Beta for Android


Tuesday 04th of March 2014 / feedproxy.google.com
As more and more apps add casting capability so users can enjoy their apps with Chromecast devices, this latest development may be useful for users needing a more general capability. Google has added the ability to cast YouTube videos from within the Chrome Beta for Android browser without opening the dedicated YouTube app. Testing shows that it kind of works with other HTML5 videos.To turn on the capability in the latest version of the Chrome Beta browser, you will need to open chrome://flags/#enable-cast in the browser to turn it on. Relaunch the browser and head to YouTube to check out a video. Just make sure you don’t launch the standalone YouTube app and you’ll see the cast button included in the video so you can choose where to play the video.Users have been testing the new functionality with other services. Vimeo videos can be casted if played in fullscreen mode. However, DailyMotion videos were not playable.If you want to give this new feature a try, use the download link below to grab the Chrome Beta app or update your version if you already have it.
