    Honest Review from a Developer – Reposted, July 24, 2013
    By 
    Jasper Lynn (Los Angeles, CA) –
    (REAL NAME)
      

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (Electronics)

    So I have no idea why Amazon decided to remove my 1500+ Helpful Review. I have had this product for weeks so I was able to give more than just a short term insight. In fact, I like the idea of it so much that I ordered two additional through Amazon yesterday before they sold out (Google only gave me one to test with).

    Anyway, I was contacted by fellow Amazon shoppers to repost it – so here it is:

    I want to provide an honest review with an actual understanding of what and how the product works having had it for a couple weeks, without violating my NDA.

    Look – you can give your “Review” once you have in your hands. Make assumptions based off an uneducated guess or incorrect information just looks stupid, I’m sorry.

    What it Is:
    It’s a HDMI dongle that is powered by Chrome OS that is designed for Streaming.

    How it Works:
    You have to connect to the same Wi-Fi network for it to work. Once it’s setup you’ll see the Chromecast logo and a basic Home Screen with some of the first apps available for Chromecast. A lot of development is going into it, so expect to see more apps from the Google Play store work with your TV. See your phone/tablet/computer more of a remote, rather than an actual streaming device.

    I only tested on the iOS side (I don’t have a Droid) and I can tell you that it works very well. It is NOT like Apple’s AirPlay where your screen is mirrored, but rather uses “the Cloud” to access your content. It works smoother than AirPlay because it doesn’t require buffering from your device, but rather directly to the TV. The only “syncing” that occurs is the Cloud communicating to the Chromecast where you’re at. For example: I’m watching a Netflix movie and I’m at 1:06:17. I hit the Square button with the wi-fi looking icon called “Cast” and it syncs it to my Chromecast. This is only different for web-browsing through the currently Beta Chrome Tab Cast, where it’ll show exactly what you’re looking on Chrome, onto your TV. It’s less functional than straight up mirroring like the Apple TV, but it works. You can’t switch between apps and have that show on the screen. This is particularly useful in web-based presentations or while you check your email and your friends are watching Netflix.

    Battery Drain on Mobile Devices:
    Because of the way Chromecast works, it’s streaming information from the Cloud vs. from your device. I noticed very little increase in the usage of battery on my iPhone 5 and my Macbook Air running Mountain Lion OSX.

    Support for Streaming Services:
    Right now, Streaming Service support is limited. Netflix, Google Services (Google Play, YouTube) and Web-based Streaming is allowed. I had issues trying to load Hulu the past couple days, telling me that my browser was unsupported, but I’ll update once I get a chance.

    Power Adapter:
    The power adapter is an optional requirement. In fact, most modern TV’s with HDMI 1.4 or higher spec are supported. The Chromecast can draw power from the HDMI port it’s plugged into. If your TV doesn’t support that, there’s also a USB cable and power adapter included in the box. I have a 2012 LG LED and a 2013 Lenovo 27″ Monitor with HDMI input and the ports power it with no cable.

    All in all, I feel like it’s still a huge work in progress. The SDK will allow for some exciting developments, and I’m happy to say that Google has committed to support this device for quite some time. It gives me piece of mind that this won’t become out of date each year.

    That being said, it’s only $35. What a steal for a device that really brings value to any TV.

    My findings so far: Chromecast can be put to some good use and I am in fact doing just that as we left for a rather extended vacation on ‘day two’ of our Chromecast experience. The way it is supported now by third parties, I don’t believe that it’s going to immediately displace or replace the Roku, Apple TV, Google TV, Blu-ray players with streaming capabilities and so forth but there are times and situations when you don’t have access to any of the above and then the little Chromecast dongle comes. And a number of major content providers are about to come onboard soon. And the price is low enough to get one and keep in as a backup, just in case. In addition, there are some very interesting capabilities that, if further developed (see my experience with playing off a NAS device) could turn the Chromecast into a revolutionary solution overtime. It should also work well as a first time streamer for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a lot to try streaming.

    _____________________________________________________

    Here you have it, a quick FAQ reflecting our experience with the product so far. I am updating it as we go and as we learn or discover more.

    Q: What can I do with Chromecast?
    A: I was able to stream Netflix, Google Music, Google Play movies or YouTube, stream off my own HDD and off my Chrome browser.

    Q: Could a Chromecast replace an already installed Roku or PS3, Xbox, Blu-ray player, media hub or whatever streaming solution?
    A: Not fully. There’s a lot more content available through the more mature ‘streamers’. Roku has hundreds of channels including Netflix (but YouTube can only be streamed in a roundabout way and it doesn’t have a browser), the PS3 and Xbox have both YouTube and Netflix and lots more including Amazon Prime and some basic browsers. I expect that Chromecast will quickly add many more services soon so time will tell.

    Q: Are there any Youtube content restrictions?
    A: Didn’t notice any. I was able to cast on the big TV all the music videos that could not be played on the PS3, Xbox, WD Mediahub or my Blu player versions of Youtube.

    Q: Should a Chromecast ever fully replace a larger or more expensive streaming device?
    A: Not immediately, but it’s a good, inexpensive, entry-level streaming solution and it’s likely to get better fast.

    Q: Who may directly support Chromecast in the near future?
    A: An USA Today article (7/31/2013) stated that “Pandora, HBO GO, Redbox, Hulu, Vevo, Vimeo, Songza, TWit.TV, and Plex have each hinted at or outright expressed forthcoming support.”

    Q: Is it equally easy to use it off a Mac/iOS as it is off an Android/PC?
    A: I did not have time to test it on the Mac before leaving for a long vacation but please leave comments on your Mac/iOS experience and I will be happy to update this section.

    Q: What are the best uses of Chromecast?
    A: Anyone who doesn’t already have some streaming device attached to their TV could use the Chromecast if the TV has an HDMI port. It could also be used on ‘bedroom’ TVs if they don’t already have access to a streamer. It proved itself most valuable while on the road for as long as Wi-Fi was available and we could actually access the TV’s features and HDMI ports (good luck with most hotel TVs).

    Q: Is content truly limited to the few services currently supported through apps such as Netflix or Youtube?
    A: Not exactly. You can also stream whatever content you have stored locally and (in Beta now) just about anything you can get playing on your Chrome.

    Q: Will Chromecast suck up all the data off my phone’s data plan if I use my phone to control streaming?
    A: Not with a service that support Chromecast. Once I told my Netflix app running on my phone that I wanted to watch on the TV, it started to stream Netflix directly to the Chromecast/TV off our Wi-Fi router, treating the phone basically as a remote control. If you are broadcasting from a Chrome browser tab then yes, the stream passes through your phone/tablet/PC.

    Q: How do I setup my Chromecast?
    A: You go to a provided URL with your browser and the Chromecast will be added to your Wi-Fi network.

    Q: Does the Chromecast power itself off the HDMI?
    A: With HDMI 1.3 I had to power it off the TV’s USB port. If your TV doesn’t have a USB port you can use the provided charger powered off an AC outlet. I wasn’t able to test with HDMI 1.4 yet but comments to this review seem to indicate that the HDMI alone can’t power the Chromecast.

    Q: Are all needed wires and a power adapter included with the Chromecast?
    A: Yes.

    Q: Does my TV have to support Wi-Fi?
    A: No, it’s the Chromecast that talks to your Wi-Fi router. The TV simply gets the stream through the HDMI port.

    Q: Can I plug the Chromecast into the receiver my TV is connected to?
    A: Yes, if your receiver has…

    An Actual Chromecast Owner, July 27, 2013
    By 

    This review is from: Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (Electronics)

    I actually ordered a Chromecast the day it was announced from Google. However the next day, I was told that they were available for purchase at bestbuy. I was anxious to try it out so I went and bought another one and gave it a try.

    Setup was easy and within 5 minutes, I was watching a youtube video on my 65″ TV. The quality was VERY good. I tried a 1080p video first “Big Buck Bunny” and it looked, played and sounded wonderful. Next, was playing music from my Google Play music app. Same result, the music sounded great.

    I moved on to my Macbook Pro, and again, the videos was clear, without lag, no audio sync problems at all. Same for my Windows PC.

    Those considering buying the Chromecast should consider what the Chromecast actually is and does, instead of what they wish it could do. So here are some facts:

    1. The Chromecast is not a streaming device of local digital content. In other words, it does NOT play digital music and videos that is stored locally on your network drives or computers. However there is a work-around for this:

    Use PLEX Media Server. If you don’t already have it, here’s the link:

    http://www.plexapp.com/getplex/

    Once you download it and point it to your files,it will act as a proxy and allow your music and videos to be played on your HDTV using the Chromecast through the Chrome browser. Simply launch the PLEX Media Manager in Google Chrome browser. Pick a file to play, Hit the Google Cast button and you’ll get seamless playback of your own files. [Edit: Please see comments to see an alternative method].

    2. The Chromecast is not a DLNA or Miracast device or Apple’s airplay. This is a lot like my number 1 fact, but I wanted to make this clear. If you want device mirroring (display whatever is on the device’s screen), the Chromecast, is NOT for you. The video and music does NOT stream from the controller device (Your computer, tablet, smartphone). Chromecast works by fetching the content from a website or cloud service itself, NOT from the device you’re using. Here’s what’s cool about that:

    A. You could start playing a video using your smartphone,tablet,computer as a “remote” and still be able to browse the web, play a game, check your social apps, write a book report, put the device to sleep,turn the device completely off (I tried this myself), or leave the house, and the video WILL still play without issues.

    B. Your battery life is saved! Because your phone, tablet or computer (not plugged in)is not actually streaming to the Chromecast, your battery consumption is minimal. You could Play dozens of movies over several days and still have most of your battery life remaining (Of course this would depend on what else you do with the phone, tablet or computer and how long your device can stay in standby).

    C. Every device connected to the Chromecast on the same network can take control of playback, adding to the queue (what’s going to play next). Pause, fast forward, rewind, etc. So if your roommate, friend, parent, sibling, spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend has to leave with their device, you don’t have to worry.

    D. You can play content from thousands upon thousands of sources using your computer. Using Google Chrome, nearly every webpage, that has content can be viewed using Chromecast. Of Course, this depends what protocols the site is using. If the site has trouble playing on your computer, then it probably won’t work well on the Chromecast, either.

    3. Chromecast IS cross platform (works with multiple devices). As I said, I tried it with several devices with different operating systems. At the time of this review, it works on Windows PC’s, Macbooks, and android devices. The app for iOS devices is coming soon. Everyone knows the Apple App store has stringent policies and at times, it can be a long process. Look at the Onlive game streaming app. We won’t get into how Apple has been trying to eradicate google applications from it’s ecosystem anyway. I’m sure the app is waiting for approval. Just be patient. [Edit: Please see comments for a reply to it working on iOS devices].

    There are several youtube videos that can show you how to set it up or how well it works. I made a video myself:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIm2-S-PcXY

    Watching my video isn’t required, but it does help to verify what I’m saying.

    4. The device you use with the Chromecast, must be on the same WIFI network. The important word here is WIFI. If you are trying to use it, with a ethernet (wired) connected device, even though it’s on the same network, it will NOT work! Yes, that sucks, but not being able to use sink water in your gas tank, kind of sucks to. If that’s a deal breaker for you, then you shouldn’t purchase it. It’s how they chose to implement it’s use. It is, what it is. [Edit: Please see comment section].
