Google Chromecast

Chromecast is a media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV. Simply use your mobile device and the TV you already own to cast your favourite TV shows, films, music, sports, games and more. Chromecast works with iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, Mac, Windows laptops and Chromebook.

With Chromecast, your phone is your remote. Simply tap the Cast button in your apps to start watching on the TV. Search, play, pause and more, right from your phone.

Choose from over 200,000 TV shows & films, 30 million songs, plus radio, sports, games and more. Discover thousands of apps at chromecast.com/apps (http://chromecast.com/apps)

See anything on your Android phone or tablet on your TV, or use your laptop to cast any website from the Chrome browser. If it's online, you can cast it.

Confused here - the Chromecast doesn't have built in apps? Basically you user a different device to control it, so your PC or phone should be able to do the speed?
Has anybody tried the Chromecast 2 devices that you can buy from Ebay? They're 'unbranded' but the specs seem the same at half this price at least!?

Your phone only works basically as a remote control for apps that are built in Chromecast, after starting a video you can kill YouTube app on your phone and Chromecast will keep on playing the video. Only exception is when you're actually streaming something from your phone like for example Chrome tabs
tried reserve and pick up in store but they refused to give the discount said it was nonsense.

That doesn't sound right - admittedly I got rid of my Chromecast 1 a while back, but AIUI, there are no "apps" as such in the Chromecast. What the app on your device does is initiates a call to the stream - so for example youtube will tell the Chromecast, here's the URN for a video - connect to the internet, and start streaming it. There's not enough memory in the Chromecast to actually store apps.
Can one of these things be used for streaming pre-downloaded videos in a folder on a pc onto the tv ?
...and if so, can you use the tvs pause/play/ff remote keys to control playback?

Went to Manchester arndale. Wouldn't sell for less than 25. Waste of time


Went back with the Currys page. The code 'cAST10' isn't on their system, but I got a better assistant than last time and he manually applied a 10% saving. Show them the Currys webpage and demand £2.50 off if some pleb refuses
Is This the same thing?

As a Chromecast - no. In terms of function, it's kind of similar.
Does it come with a power supply? or powered from usb?

Plugged into the wall.

Either - but they recommend using the included power supply. Iirc, it won't do firmware updates unless it's got enough power.

That is based on Miracast. Apple and many Android phones don't have Miracast - my G5+ e.g. doesn't.
mine arrived today its much better than the first one
Aargh I've left my Chromecast 1st ed in my sister's TV in Plymouth. I want to watch arsenal tomoz so going to get a 2nd edition or hd version which should I go for I haven't got a fancy TV but is the direct ethernet worth it. I assume I'll notice a difference in the 5ghz dual band
