Streaming quality

Netflix and Youtube hit 1080p. but iPlayer only manages 720p. Despite that, quality is decent, because this streams direct on the internet, not your device. Videos can also be “cast” from Chrome browser links but these are less reliable and of worse quality.

Setup and interface
Chromecast doesn’t have interface, as everything is done via the free app or your browser. It’s simple, if a bit utilitarian: tap the “cast” logo to view anything in a supported app. It’ll begin playing almost instantly, but is entirely reliant on syncing up other devices.

Google Chromecast

Box includes Chromecast, HDMI extender, USB power cable, and power adapter. No remote needed. Chromecast works with devices you already own, including Android tablets and smartphones, iPhones, iPads, Chrome for Mac, and Chrome for Windows.

Content
Netflix, iPlayer and Youtube are the only big apps. Thankfully, you can “cast” most videos online from Chrome pages after a quick plug-in. It’s a clunky workaround that has issues, but the internet is ripe for plundering.

PROS: Relatively inexpensive ($35) compared to other options (Roku, Apple TV) ,Easy to use. Can stream anything on the Chrome browser. Casts any vdo you can find online.

CONS: Few official apps. Doesn’t support any local storage media directly. No interface. Chrome links dip in quality. Reliant on other device.
