Anybody own a chromecast and use it on a regular basis? I'm considering picking one up today and I'd like some opinions from the bx family.

I have one; it's cool. They just added Plex the other day which allows you to stream your own movies. The Plex app needs some work; it buffers a lot. Plus, you need a subscription to Plex pass to stream your own movies at the moment.

You can also cast HBO Go and Hulu. It works for me because I cut the cable cord, and I use YouTube, Netflix, HBO Go, and Hulu for viewing. It's not as seamless as my AppleTV though.

playing the videos thats on your phone/PC right on the Chromecast

I'd personally like to see MX Player and Navi-X get some Chromecast support

Was going to get it, but i already have a smart TV and before i got that i had a googleTV box, so dont really seen the need for it

Not trying to be sarcastic, really curious, but is there anything i can do with that that i cant do with a smart tv+googletv?

I personally like it. Small dongle, and as long as you have a USB port on your tv, you can charge it directly from there. Great device. I use it for HBOGo, Netflix and Hulu. It works great with Youtube though. For $35, you can't beat it.

I thought you could just drag video files into chrome and cast it like that? Does that not work?

Once it gets more apps, you'll see the price rise which is why you jump in early.
