Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player
This device allows you to sit Back and enjoy online video and anything from the web on your HDTV. Just simple plug it into any HDTV and control it with a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. You can send your favorites from HBO GO, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, Pandora, Google Play Movies & TV, Google Play Music, and Chrome to your HDTV with the touch of a button. No more sitting around small TV screens and small  speakers. This Chromecast automatically updates to work with a ever increasing number of apps out there.

With the Chromecast, you can definitely enjoy your favorite online tech content on your HDTV—movies, TV shows, videos, music, photos, websites, and more from HBO GO, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, Pandora, Google Play Movies & TV, Google Play Music, and Chrome (see video) .


This device is lilk a sister or a brother to a USB drive and an Android stick , .This little smart device is aproximately 2 inches length, with a male HDMI plug at one end, and a microUSB port at the opposite end. The end with the USB port is round in shape, and has a tiny status light. The Chromecast is almost the size as the Plair TV device, and works in a similar way.I appreciate the fact that Google includes an HDMI extension cable with the Chromecast; as it makes it a lot easier to plug in if the space at the rear of your TV is limited. Also included is a long USB extension cord and power plug.


Setting up the Chromecast is basically a straightforward process, this is good, simple because there's almost no manual in the box. First, plug the device into an available HDMI port on your TV, then attach the USB power cord to the Chromecast.

The next thing is to install the Chome Web browser to your notebook (it supports Windows and Mac OS X), followed by the Chromecast setup app (go to The installer will then connect your notebook to the Chromecast by Wi-Fi , and configure the Chromecast to work on your local wireless network. This process will take about 6 to 10 minutes. 

No Remote 
Absolutely no remote is needed.Control in the Palm of Your Hand simple because Chromecast works with devices such as : Android tablets and smartphones, iPhones, iPads, Mac and Windows laptops, and Chromebooks. Just simple browse for what you want to watch, control playback, and change volume using your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. There is no need to learn anything new.

How it Work
This Chromecast device will connects directly to your Wi-Fi signal, so streams don't have to go through another device, such as your phone or laptop. The fact that they're on the same network, you can use your mobile device to control what's playing on screen.

Basically there is no interface to speak of; on your notebook, a small icon will pop up in the corner of the Chrome Web browser, and in the lower right corner of any video from sites that support Chromecast. (Currently,  only YouTube, Netflix and Google Play are compatible.)

When you go through to YouTube or Netflix, that same icon will popup in the lower right corner of whatever video you're watching; click on it, and you send a command to the Chromecast to start streaming the video on your TV. As the video is loaded directly from the Internet to the Chromecast, it will only play on your TV, and definitely not on your notebook. However, the volume and skip controls on your notebook can be used to control the video on your set. What's nice about this device is that, once you start playing a video from your phone, you can then move your handset out of range of the network, and the video will continue to play on your TV.

When you clicking on the Chromecast logo in the upper right corner of the browser will show what Chromecasts are visible on your network, shows the title of what's currently being cast to your TV, along with media controls. Here, you also have the option to cast a tab in the Chrome browser to your TV, and to change streaming quality.
