    Pfft, we all know you'd only get 21 seconds into it before you exceeded your data cap.

    If you use XBMC you can install Add-on Repository which gives you access to add ons not in the standard XBMC directory. XBMC Adult repo has some good adult apps for fantasti.cc and other sites. Also good Spotify and Pandora apps.

    Sort of, but it didn't work worth a shit.

    Worked for me when I used to cast Twitch.tv to my Chromecast. Of course I wouldn't have noticed a/v sync or similar problems.

    I have tried it several times with things like Vimeo and it has always been a complete shit show.

    That will make the chromecast that much more useful. Would be great if I could use it as an extender for my media center pc with live tv

    Odd, I've noticed its pretty CPU intensive (hence my post recently doubting we will see cast tab on Android) maybe your CPU doesn't cut it?

    Hopefully the guy who released the addons to make it cast movies gets to work asap again, he had some great ones when it first came out.

    It's possible, I was doing it from my shitty netbook that I use to web surf while I watch TV.

    Looks like some applications are starting to come out, Revision 3's application can cast, AllCast is supposed to be able to but at least for me never seems to find the device.

    It just isn't made to do that. I don't think you'll ever see great streaming performance of anything unless it's a specifically written Chromecast app (like Netflix, Hulu, Plex, Youtube, etc) Chromecast just doesn't work well trying to cast random web pages.

    But that was also Google's exact intentions for the device. They want people to design Chromecast-specific apps that act almost like traditional TV channels. Chromecast will eventually end up basically having a Youtube channel, Netflix channel, Twitch.tv channel, Hulu channel...maybe some cable companies will get onboard(HBO Go please), etc. It's not really meant to be a means to put your PC directly onto your TV, it's meant to be a standalone device that is controlled via your pc/phone/tablet.

    I haven't seen stuttering when I've streamed Twitch.tv (fullscreen) to my Chromecast. This is from an i5-3570k w/ 12gb ram connected to the wifi access point via gigabit so wireless traffic only goes in one direction. (Of course there could be a/v sync issues that aren't really noticeable w/o someone's face but the sounds do seem to match whats happening)

    My computer isn't that great, so that may have been the issue. It was my pegging my CPU out at 100%.

    In other news, Plex app no longer needs a subscription to stream to chromecast. Set it up the other night and it ran movies perfectly from my room to the living room. With the amount of media I have on my computer in my room this was the best $30 I've spent in a long time.

    This lets you stream Twitch.tv on Chromecast! http://nitrousstudios.com/twitchcast/index.php

    Its working like a charm right now, no lag, great quality. and its not shitty like streaming a "full tab".
