Media Browser - Ready to Cast! Stream your local media to Chromecast.

If you guys haven't heard of the news yet, Chromecast SDK is public now. This means we are READY TO CAST!

 

The devs have been working hard to bring Chromecast support to MB! We are currently in beta testing with the different platforms including Android, iOS and web. We worked very closely with the Google devs over the last few weeks to add Chromecast support to our existing client apps. Chromecast as a receiver device will seamlessly integrate with the other MB apps like MB Classic, MB-Web and MB-Roku and can support up to 1080p video playback.

 

If you haven't gotten a Chromecast yet you can order it from Google or Amazon.

 

Oh and this feature will be available to all our users ;)

This is why I've always used Media Browser over anything else.

It should be around the same exact quality. Though the Roku can directly play some file types and I think Chromecast always uses HLS. Also with Chromecast you need another device to actually interact with compared to with Roku just needing the Roku itself.

How do we get this actually working? I have the MB Server and the WMC client installed.. What else do I need to see in order to allow me to cast to my Chromecast.. I see  no mention of it in the tutorials or FAQ.s
