As found on Dugan Ashley’s Instagram page. Yeah, it’s a bit late for a post about anything from April Fool’s, but you never know when a ‘prank’ announcement ends up being true.

Chromecast

Chromecast is an inexpensive device that allow you to stream from your computer directly to your television over your Wi-Fi connection. Actually, while that’s true, there are some restrictions. Specifically, Chromecast is designed to work best with certain devices and certain services/programs: if you want to stream YouTube, Google Play videos, or Netflix from your iOS, android, or computer you’re completely covered. Also, true to its name, it’s specific to the Chrome browser, so if your running it from your computer you’ll have to do all your surfing using Chrome for the device to work.

In my experience, you could project virtually any website to your tv if you wanted, although the stream to screen ratio was far from 1:1; lowering the stream quality from 720p to 480p helped a bit. You can almost get away with running ‘third party media players’ like Vimeo for a few seconds to a few minutes, until the stream decides to crash on you and you have to restart it. Overall, if you’re a Netflix or YouTube junkie without a game console or blu-ray player capable of streaming these services to your television, this might be the solution you’re looking for.
