I also recently downloaded Soda Player for OSX to stream, and it also has similar capabilities.
.. which I have. Now I need an iOS device.
Or set up a GET endpoint with the python library and access that from my mobile device of choice
My TV is not in the same room as my computer setup, so it is more convenient for me to control with a smartphone.
Looking at this GitHub project, looks like it lets you do exactly that.
What am I missing here? You seem to think it's a bad thing.
It's like one of those old FM adaptors for cars, or more pertinently - making a JPG of a GIF - everything gets worse.
Also casting your desktop is encoding the desktop. The quality is worse.
The only advantage is for casting content with no native support.
Edit: from Python to nodejs
While checking it, no idea where that came from.
I think I'm going to wrap the script to get a REPL so that I don't loose access to the object, similar to what I did for AWS: https://github.com/russellballestrini/botoform/blob/master/b...

Chromecast (device, protocol, libraries, firmware) are Google’s most user-hostile and restrictive project so far.
After some time it bothered me that I had a machine plugged in 24/7 connected to both my local LAN and Internet, owned by Google. So, every night I unplug the chromecast and then plug it again whenever I want to cast something.
How about creating a firewall rule and then toggling that instead of physically disconnecting the Chromecast? I found a likely configuration: https://blog.g3rt.nl/allow-google-chromecast-host-firewall-i...
