    Wtf, doesn't the desktop version *not* have Chromecast support? At least it didn't last time I wanted to watch Shrek.

    Is there something like chromecast that steams content via usb dongle or so?
    Call me paranoid, but I really hate connecting anything to anything Google
    Apple TV is too expensive and I hate the GUI and controller

    Pretty sure the answer is no. The Chromecast is a mystery to me. There's one in our house, and I've never successfully streamed something to it because it's so unclear what you can and can't stream.
