Ready to cast: Chromecast now open to developers with the Google Cast SDK

Ready to cast: Chromecast now open to developers with the Google Cast SDK | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

The Google Cast SDK is simple to integrate because there’s no need to write a new app. Just incorporate the SDK into your existing mobile and web apps to bring your content to the TV. You are in control of how and when you develop and publish your cast-ready apps through the Google Cast developer console. The SDK is available on Android and iOS as well as on Chrome through the Google Cast browser extension.

For non-media applications, or for more flexibility and design options, you can build your own custom receiver application using standard web technologies. With a custom receiver you can build virtually any application while including support for many streaming protocols, including MPEG-DASHHLS, and Microsoft Smooth Streaming, all of which are available in the Media Player Library.

Streaming Content to Google Chromecast with MPEG-DASH | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago Google released Chromecast, a device which plugs into the HDMI port of a TV, and can stream content directly to the TV, with controls from either a mobile device or a computer.
