chromecast_mediaplayer

A simple Chromecast Media player that plays media from the filesystem. The frontend is Web Based assuming that the Chrome Browser is Chromecast enabled.

Install

You must first get your Chromecast device registered. See https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/registration. This sender application uses the Default Media Receiver (https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/receiver_apps#default) so only the device needs to be registered.

Setup

Grab a copy of the sender web application

git clone https://github.com/rbackhouse/chromecast_mediaplayer.git

cd chromecast_mediaplayer

npm install

Running the sender application

node lib/server.js [port] [path to media]

Point a Chromecast enabled Chrome Browser at http://host:port
