AirCast for Android plays your own videos via Chromcast

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Now it finally makes sense

Our biggest issue with Google's Chromcast HDMI dongle was the fact that it cannot play your personal videos or photos, it was just mirroring YouTube, Netflix or Chrome browser content and playing it on your TV.

Now with the help of a tweaker that goes under the name of Koushik Dutta you can play some of your Android content including gallery, Dropbox or Google drive content on your Chromecast powered TV. The application goes under the name of AirCast and is currently a two day trial app that will self-destruct. It can be downloaded here and there is a big hope that this will make it to a longer standing application at a later date.

The way the application works is that you simply hit the share button in the application and your Chromecast can play a selected video or photo. This is what we wanted in first place but Google decided to stay away from it at launch. We wonder what Google has to say about this application, but with this app we see a great future for the cheap Chromecast dongle.
