Thread: Support for Google Chromecast device

  1. #1

    Default Support for Google Chromecast device

    Google have announced the Chromecast HDMI streamer ($35, Amazon link) which is now available although demand is currently outstripping supply.

    In order to work it requires the media be accessible as a URL - it doesn't use DLNA. here's a discussion.

    Is there any chance of Mezzmo supporting this?

    We watching Chromecast with interest. We could add a web presentation interface to Mezzmo media server (this is part of DLNA guidelines) and that could provide the media URLs to URL-based streamers like Chromecast.

    No active development at the moment (too busy on other features!), but we are keeping it on our future plans.

    I too have been watching this pretty cool little device and would love to be able to add these to every TV in my home to play my Mezzmo video/music content. Consider it!!!!!

    Consider it considered! Thanks for the +1 on this device support.

    This little device is something to STRONGLY consider support for.

    I bought one for each of my TVs (6) and have replaced my WD Live media players to access YouTube, HBOGo, and Netflix.

    I had to keep the media players connected, though, so I can continue using Mezzmo to access my .VOB movie files. There have been a couple of apps that have just been released to access media from other sources but none can access .VOB files. If Mezzmo figures out a way to do this, I would be in heaven.

    We're also playing with our Chromecast here and discussing how best we integrate Mezzmo server into it.

    Once the Google releases their Chromecast SDK, then we can start on Chromecast support in Mezzmo. The Chromecast SDK is only in developer preview at the moment.

    I just bought one; it's a great little device. It streams Netflix far better than any of my other devices (and streams shows such as Breaking Bad with Dolby Digital Plus), and it allows me to watch HBO Go on my TV (I have done this with Play On, but the quality is poor). YouTube works great as well. I won't hold my breath for Showtime Anytime support, as even using their Web site to watch shows sucks (Android app is even worse).

    I installed Plex (and paid for a one-month subscription) just so I could stream my media to the Chromecast, but it would be better to have that capability in Mezzmo.
