    This list is by no means complete, but I'll do what I can to keep it up to date.



    If you know of any more, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.

    Localcast is as good as Avia and it's free.

    Totally forgot about Avia.

    Never heard of localcast either, but it's added to the list, thank you! :)

    Not any more! An update is rolling out today, casting is available for anyone who's paid for the app! :)

    I've added Chromecast support to my music app, Music Player (Remix).

    Synology, for those who have movies/videos on their NAS can stream directly from their NAS if they have a Synology one.

    Polaris Office from Infraware, latest release, offers casting of Office documents to Chromecast. Great for presentations and works a treat and it is FREE!!!

    Vlc player and VMware horizon both have a hidden ui for Chromecast when you screencast your device. VMware you have flick on presentation mode though.

    That's not entirely true. Yes, you need the app to cast from your phone, but you can cast directly from the web interface as well, regardless of being a Plexpass subscriber.

    Hoopla Digital is a free service but you do need a valid Library Card to sign in (so 'free' to use but the service is paid for by your local library, which means you are kinda, sorta paying for it through your taxes). Not every library subscribes with Hoopla but the numbers are continuously increasing. There's Chromecast support for movies but you can 'digitally borrow' a lot of other content -- ebooks, comics, and music -- that you can also access on your smartphone.

    Just downloaded Music Player Remix as Pro Player isn't able to cast and Google music gives me an error saying can't play side loaded music, which is crap.

    So hopefully Music Player Remix works. I'll have to try it later when I'm in that room with my Chromecast Audio.
