+Mel Allen when screencasting from a laptop click on the gear icon and choose the 480 resolution. It helps a lot with the lag issue, and the quality is acceptable.

We need something like this for Windows as well. So that audio can be cast from things like Winamp, WMP or other music managers. You can use the beta "Cast screen" option but it's not ideal. And especially with Cast for Audio. This also raises the need again for an official Google dongle or 2.0 Chromecast with an audio jack.

There's an SDK issue for this as well.

My "Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast" just arrived today, and I'm surprised I haven't seen more talk about it here. Both the wired and wireless connections are active at the same time, which will be my primary usage. I'll try to do a review as soon as possible.

Since the introduction of Google photos I can no longer select the albums I want to use as my Chromecast backdrop. Google also did not include Chromcast support in Google Photos.

Hey All, 

Any help getting a Chromecast setup on a transparently proxied network here at a school?  State law requires that we use TMG (although switching to Lightspeed systems soon).  Typically we manually input the proxy server and our devices talk directly to it.  

Any help?

So the new Ethernet adapter for Chromecast has anyone tried to plug in a nexus 5/6. Using an OTG cable and Ethernet adapter works but you can't charge. I wonder if this could do both? Someone want to try it.

My Nexus 6 (Lollipop 5.1.1) charges (at the lower rate), but nothing shows for any Ethernet connection. Nothing goes active for an IP. It looks like it is a bust for your plans.

My chromecast is prompting me to set it up ( after it being set up and functional for over a year) but when I try to set it up, it fails. I believe this started occurring after the firmware update today. My router is dual band so I don't think it is a 5ghz issue. Any suggestions?

+Kenneth Pang you want a "screen lock function". I presume you mean setting it so you need to enter a password to change to another app. Google "android screen pinning" to see how this works and if your phone supports it.

And here in the UK, Amazon now throwing in music with Prime. Only 1M tracks for now, plus your purchases as mp3's, but bound to divert some from Apple as essentially it's free and ad free. Just tried it in a browser and it casts fine.
