Could have done that already with the Cast this Tab feature!
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
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.
so whats the real deal with streaming my desktop with chromecast and not stuttering?
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.

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.
