ChromeCast Local Media Playback for Everybody

This app no longer works for the public

Now anybody can play local media directly from their computers to their ChromeCast device. No browser required.

I've released an updated version of my Fling application.

The application is written in Java and should run on any OS, just install a JRE: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

The app has experimental support for transcoding of media formats not supported by the ChromeCast. You need to have the latest version of VLC installed for transcoding (preferably 64-bit).

ChromeCast devices has at minimum support for these media formats: https://developers.google.com/cast/supported_media_types

The previous version could only be used by ChromeCast developers, but this version can be used by the public.

The code for the app is open-sourced: https://github.com/entertailion/Fling

This app does not use the official Google Cast SDK.
