We all heard the news that Google released the dev kit to build out Chromecast apps yesterday so I spent the evening throwing together my first app, which I must say came together as something that's pretty damn useful. You can visit, for example, a TED talk, hit the bookmarklet and it will pull down the MP4 behind the scenes and present it on a layer that's now Chromecast friendly. Same goes for Vimeo, Plex.tv (without having to pay the $5/mo) and a plethora of other video sites. Definitely open to hearing the thoughts of the community!

Take that Plex! :D

Now now, @corey_gwin - Plex is still amazing. Paying customer myself...they made Chromecast actually useable! My little bookmarklet only throws up existing MP4's where Plex transcodes AVI/etc to work as well.

Late to the party, but cheers @parterburn Just watched some talks from Vimeo seemlessly. Helps so much given that casting straight from the chrome browser generally has been horrible for me.
