    Any thoughts regarding chromecast integration?
    Allowing the ability to send the webportal page to a chromecast device from a chrome browser ?

    Yes we've discussed it already and we want to add it at some point. But right now a) none of us has a chromecast yet and b) chromecast is in the very early stages so you'll have to give it some time...

    Thanks for the response. It's great to know it's on the radar.

    It should perhaps not be so hard to do this if you use the chrome browser as application for this. Open the web interface of a stream in MPextended in chrome and put it to full screen and move it to the chromecast device. I would've tried it already if I would've had a ChromeCast device...

    But this is based on my understanding of how it works...

    And what about UpnP/DNLA support in MPExtended? I don't understand the whole hipe about the chromecast.. With an UpnP rederer and player in Mediaportal (there is allready a plugin, but that one is not developed anymore) you can do exactly the same as far as I know, and it's a lot easier to develop I gues..

    What are your thoughts about this @DieBagger? :)

    That it would be awesome... ;)

    Unfortunately there's no good out-of-the-box solution for dlna afaik (did quite a bit of research a while back). And as with everything else: Someone has to actually implement it... ;)

    I understand.. But the plugin that is allready developed for Mediaportal is working really good with (up to) MP 1.5. I can do with it what I want:

    Stream music, video's and pictures right into Mediaportal.. This functionallity is totally awesome!

    The reason I like to see this functionallity in MPExtended is because the plugin is not developed anymore, and it is really a HOT feature for MPextended I gues.. If you can get the source code of this plugin, do you think you can do something with it? :)

    Hm, I thought you wanted MPExtended to act as a DLNA streaming server... You're talking about dlna playback, imo that's better off in MP (since it is a frontend for playing video).

    Yesterday the Google Chromecast has been released for 35 € in germany.
    I directly went to MediaMarkt and bought one.

    I tried it out yesterday and it is some really great device especially together with Plex Media Server which I tried out in the last two month.
    But I would really love if this is also supported by MPExtended together with Ampdroid. So it could be possible to watch TV and OnlineVideos of MP on Chromecast.

    Are there any new plans since december?
