Last year I gave my parents a couple of chromecasts as a Christmas present, and a month ago I discovered the videostream chrome extension.
It looks like a perfect companion for the Chromecast, it acts as Serviio as you can define folders in your computer where you have videos, it has a remote control available for android and it seems to transcode some formats like mkv... I was impressed with it.
That works nicely!
I'm impressed - once I got it working, which wasn't trivial because Kaspersky didn't like its Secure comms to Chromecast - it transcodes MKV, AVI, WMV, ... nice!
Thank you for that: is it worth your adding it to the Free Tools forum?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
It goes correctly till 2:54, then it jumps to 2:58, stops counting for a while (the 4 seconds that are missing are not shown and the time in the progress bar gets stopped at 2:58 during 4 seconds) and after that it continues...
