    Default Chromecast and Ultraviolet

    Hi all,
    I did a quick search but couldn't find what I was looking for.

    Is there currently any way to view my ultraviolet collection using my newly acquired Chromecast in the UK?
    I know Flixster can do it on the US, but as yet unavailable here in the UK (as far as I'm aware)

    Thanks
    Jamie

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I can't seem to get Vudu to work either, it's the most confusing UI ever!!
    The app also isn't available in the UK....

    I'm hoping there is a way for this to work over here. I love my chromecast for streaming Netflix and YouTube, I think it'd be a shame to have to use a separate bluray player.


    Thanks

    Do you have a PC that you can use Chrome with, watch your purchased videos via a web based interface, and just cast the tab?

    I'll give that a go. Wasn't sure if I'd heard people mention it was a little laggy....

    Thanks for the help!

    I doubt it. UV video files require a player that has been approved by UV. I am 99.9999% sure Videostream isn't. I know the folks at plex looked into it, and they basically explained it is priced out of the relm of any possibility for a small company. I think it was in the range of a 200-250k just to be allowed to develop a UV player.

    That is completely crazy.

    Cool Re: Chromecast and Ultraviolet - Blinkbox

    Good news I've just discovered.

    Blinkbox (from Tesco) will now let you link to your UV account and it works well with Chromecast from the android app.
