Chromecast: Cast movies on your Desktop Computer As the title says... if you have a movies on your desktop computer, you can now cast them straight to Chromecast. This is highly efficient, as there is no encoding/decoding taking place. It streams at full quality, with no lag. And since it is a Chrome app, it works on all platforms. No binary installation necessary; it will be available on the Chrome store. Technical Details I spent tonight writing a mini HTTP server in JavaScript that runs in Chrome. Full featured enough to handle requests and stream movies. Yes, that means there is a web server running in my web browser. I'm insane.

So bottom line is you get better video performance than casting a tab in Chrome, right?

Would be great if it were possible to "Cast" a Downloaded Movie already on your phone or Tablet to Television. I was told that would not be possible. :( Sad Panda
