Harken back to Episode 2, where Chromecast was mentioned. You should recall that at the time, Chromecast was unable to send local content to your TV because the SDK was hobbled to not allow this. There were some hacks like using Chrome with an extension, but it didn’t work well. The fellow who created AllCast, Koushik Dutta was unhappy about his app being disabled. Well, that situation has been turned around and for the moment, AllCast works again.
I brought one home from a trip the the USA last year. I mentioned in the G+ Bad Voltage community at the time that the usual trick for streaming outside the USA, proxies and such wasn’t working for Chromecast because it was using hard-coded DNS servers.
I’m a little shy about posting links now and want you to know I have nothing to do with Chromecast, Google, AllCast or anything else mentioned here
Have any of you found a good use for Chromecast (or does anyone even have one)?
