With all the praise Chromecast receives, does it have some actual uses that aren't "display shitty apps on your TV"?
I don't see a single application for this that a cable couldn't do better.

Does the Chromecast have uses that aren't exactly what it is used for?
Why, no Bob, it does exactly what it says it does, which is display shitty apps on your TV.
It ALSO, as an extension of doing exactly what it's advertised to do, allows you to display any OS desktop that chrome supports on your TV without needing a cable at all.

Yes there is.

It's worth it alone for Videostream if you don't have a dedicated media center setup, especially if you hate watching shit on a monitor like me.

I like being able to cast netflix or youtube or twitch streams directly from my phone onto the TV, it's a lot nicer than hooking up a cable to my phone

And it's a lot worse than a $25 fire TV stick that comes with a remote. It's a terrible device made for Facebook normies.

I have my tv hooked up to a PC, is there any reason for me to get chromecast? I don't watch hulu or netflicks and I like youtube without ads.

Not really

The important question is: Will this allow me to stream series to my TV using the MPC?
>>
>>51578154

Chromecsst supports screen mirroring from any android device with v4.4+

I recently streamed my SNES emulator from my Z3 and enjoyed some Super Metroid on my 40" TV.

Would work even better if you can pair a Bluetooth controller to your phone.

It's shit. Just use standard screen mirroring, works much better.
