    Just a random thought I had while waiting on my ChromeCast to be shipped.


    When I decided to buy the N10 one of the features I was most interested in was the miracast [the play store originally listed the n10 as having miracast,]. Then when Google clarified that the N10 wasn't Miracst capable at that time many of us assumed it would be added/restored in a future update. As of yet it hasn't.


    I'm just curious if people think ChromeCast may be the reason why.

    I think ChromeCast was more to fill a need for TVs that do not support it nor have built in apps. My Sony already has YouTube, Netflix and Hula apps so aside from some additional benefits I do not need it.

    It is now supported on N10 in 4.3.

    Not to keep going O/T here, but I've been debating it if only for YouTube. Every TV in my house has a Roku, which of course doesn't carry YouTube. My main TV has a YouTube app, as does the BR player attached to it, but both are horrible. (The TV is a shame given that the remote has a QWERTY keyboard on the back.) In fact, I've never seen a good YouTube app on any TV or attached peripheral. I'm curious as to how good the one is on Chromecast, given the Google/YouTube connection.

    I've been trying to figure out a way to stream a movie played from a website from my pc to my tv. I tried with my N10, but the movie would not play. Too bad because i have an hdmi cable that can go from my N10 to my hdmi switch box to the (non wifi) samsung tv.

    Today I ordered the ChromeCast and also a wifi extender. We recently got a Sony BR player with wifi that works with Amazon Prime. Our Roku did not work with amazon movies. I'm just getting a media setup (via Sony software) to stream from content on the pc to the BR player today. That's just for stuff in storage though. I'm trying to figure out how to do live movie streaming (From Hallmark website which we subscribe to) to our tv. That's why I've ordered the ChromeCast although I don't know if it will work for that. Someone says there's a way to get Adobe Flash onto an android tablet and I'm going to try that today also. If that works, I'll just cancel the ChromeCast order. Standardization? What standardization? We ain't got to show you no stinkin standardization!

    Update: I found a place to get Adobe Flash Player onto my N10--see other thread posts. I might still give ChromeCast a try though. If you go to Amazon, you'll find a lot of customer reviews and comments for chromecast. Some are very technical and discuss Miracast as well.

    I got a Rocketfish Miracast receiver for $30 at Best Buy for the 2013 N7. It works great.
    It supports 5GHz WiFi and is nice and compact.
