Hi,

I have WD HD (2TB) connected to my home wireless network, is there a way to stream my media content to watch them on Chromecast ?

I have it connected to Apple TV using ATV Flash (Infuse).

I know there is a way by using google chrome browser extension, im looking to stream it directly from NAS server without using a laptop.


Thank you

If your setup allows for web access to the drive, and you are able to play the file in the browser window, then you should be able to cast it. I just got mine last night and have not been able to test my setup, but I have a a Buffalo 3TB NAS which I have enabled webaccess on. I can log into my NAS through chrome and open a .m4v file and it will play in my browser window. In theory, I should be able to just hit the cast extension button and it will play on the TV. I will report back tonight.

I have a 2TB HDD connected to my router. I can play anything from it in a Chrome tab on my laptop (excluding .mkv) and cast it to my TV with no problem.
