Google opens Chromecast to all developers
Google throws open the development doors to Chromecast so that app makers can get their apps on your TV.



it's at 28,791 reviews (Feb 3rd)
We will see if it switch over to 5,000,000 - 10,000,000 installs when it's at around 30,000 reviews.

Nice... but is it still just DIAL, or will local streaming be supported?

Local streaming has been supported for a time, Plex does that

The new Plex App for iOS and Android is killer. Especially with ChromeCast / Roku support. They've completely redone the "remote" portion of the app for full control over those devices. Including timeline scrubbing. (Last version was literally just a remote with 4 way buttons.

switching to Plex + chromecast (or roku type device) is easily the best home media automation system I have ever used.

If only Chromecast would work with just a local network without Internet access
