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