Question Chromecast?


Not totally Slackware related but... I have Google'd and found so many conflicted reports on Chromecast not being officially supported under Linux but it works. It sometimes works, it runs like crap, etc.

So anyone running Slackware using a Chromecast and it working for you?

Not really what I was hoping for. Guess I will figure out something on Monday when it gets here.

The newest version of Chrome supports the Google Cast extension which will allow you to cast a tab from Chrome in Linux to the Chromecast. I have not been able to get a Chromecast to see how well it works or not.
