Chromecasting any app that uses video or audio could be coming to CyanogenMod soon

This is why I love Android. The simple fact that developers can take their stake in a product and customize tools to fit their own (and other users’) needs is a beautiful thing, and is perfectly displayed in what Koush from CyanogenMod has been doing for quite a while now (here, here, here, here, etc.).

Today, Koush announced that he has successfully built Chromecast into the CyonagenMod framework, now allowing any app with audio or video to cast directly to your TV. Yep, that’s right. You don’t have to wait for your favorite application to come out with Chromecast support anymore. So if you were holding off getting Chromecast until that glorious day finally came, it is no longer an acceptable excuse— unless of course you don’t want to load up CyanogenMod onto your phone, which is obviously a huge barrier for many of us that don’t want to deal with the rooting process.

Koush is pretty much breaking records right now considering the amount of stuff he’s developed for Chomecast so far, including streaming local videos/pictures to Chromecast, Dropbox support, RSS video support, and now showing Cast support built into the CM framework. Crazy stuff.

Check out the video after the break of Koush demonstrating it all for you, himself. Let’s hope this becomes available very soon!!

    Maybe now my chromecast will be useful! No sideloaded music in Google play was killing me!
