+Linus Torvalds hey Linus, this should fix your kids' video rotation bugs :)
 
+VLC  While we're asking question, i wonder if you have any plans for a chromebook release ? I'd sacrifice puppies for that.
 
Patiently awaiting Chromecast support. :)
 
Vlc works great with Chromecast for me. It's been working great with Chromecast for months now. I love how it converts into a remote control when casting. 
 
+Michael Harmon Yes, that is what I used to do.  I had a 15 foot hdmi cable that got replaced about once a month because the dog kept running into it.  Now I am spoiled with my Chromecast. I want native functionality on Windows.  Developers say it is coming at some day in the future, so I wait. :)
 
also waiting for VLC to support chromecast. Until then I use the videostream extension for chrome browser, works really well!
 
found a bug
previous versions, when Hardware Decoding was set to automatic, it would automatically know that I'm playing a 4K video, and render properly. now I have to manually disable Hardware Decoding for a 4K video to play properly, otherwise I'll end up with squares, bars and frozen frames.
