Chromecast is a line of digital media players developed by Google. Designed as small dongles, Chromecast enables users to stream audio/visual content to HD TV or home audio system with mobile and web apps that support the Google Cast technology. Alternatively, it allows mirroring of content from the web browser Google Chrome running on a personal computer, as well as content displayed on some Android devices.
Chromecast devices are dongles that are powered by connecting the device's micro-USB port to an external power supply or a USB port. Video-capable Chromecasts plug into the HDMI port of a high-definition television or monitor, while the audio-only model outputs sound through its integrated 3.5 millimeter audio jack/mini-TOSLINK socket. By default, Chromecasts connect to the Internet through a Wi-Fi connection to the user's local network; a standalone USB power supply with an Ethernet port, introduced in July 2015 for US$15, allows a wired connection. The new Chromecast app introduced new features to help you find apps and contents that can be used with Chromecast devices.Part 1. Convert iTunes Movies to Chromecast Part 2.
