No. It doesn't work with Microsoft products yet. That's what 7illusions means in his post above.

It's possible to have Chromecast support on Microsoft devices. There are plenty of Windows Phone apps that support it. But you have to do a lot of coding yourself, I guess, as there is no SDK. :P


Though, Chromecast still should support the DIAL protocol? Which is supported in the UWP framework? So some of the work could already be done?

If there's no SDK support, are there any plans to allow 'flinging' of media to another emby client?


ie. I load up the Windows emby App, start playing a locally synced file, and can play it on another local emby client (eg. FireTV stick?)


On the 'other' 4 letter media server you can enable a 'mobile server', so other plex clients on the same LAN can play back cached content from your device, or you can fling content at them. I think it's a reasonably basic web server within the app that hosts the files. 


It works really well for travelling when you have either no/low bandwidth and can't stream from the home server. You can plug in a fireTV stick and play back whatever you have synced locally with a nice big interface..
