Jury is out still...

$35 and possibly can stream to it like a squeezebox. I'm reading the APIs and checking to see if that is possible. Maybe...

The Chromecast is a little different in that the remote device instructs the Chromecast to stream a particular piece of content after that the remote device merely acting as a remote control. You don't stream to Chromecast.

Is there any update?
Can the Chromecast be used as a streaming client?

Best regards

We expect that the SDK will continue to change before we launch out of developer preview, and want to provide a great experience for users and developers before making the SDK and additional apps more broadly available.

I would be happy enough if anybody could change the browser plugins so that it would fire a mediascenario when sending a youtubevideo to the chromecast. This way av receiver or TV would change inputs to the connected chromecast...
are the plugins even open source?  ???
