We've just launched a Beta version of Chromecast integration with our streaming video player!
Don't have a Chromecast?! They're a cheap ($35) dongle that plugs into your HDMI-capable TV, and it allows you to stream from several apps like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube without the hassle of buying a $100 set-top box. Get one here! (Note: Google Chrome browser is required. Mobile support through Chrome on Android - you must make the player full-screen on your device to access it.)
Now you can stream all of our VOD content directly from our servers to your living room.
Here's how to Cast RiffTrax VODs to your Chromecast device:
1. Buy a Chromecast if you don't already have one and set it up. It should only take a few minutes
2. Click on the VOD you want to watch from your My Library page. You should see the player with the Cast icon.
2. Click the Cast icon . Your browser' will show a popup.
5. Click on your Chromecast device's name in the list, as usual. The video player should change to a "Casting" screen, and your Chromecast-connected TV should begin to load the stream.
NOTE: we will always serve you the "HD" or Highest-Quality stream available for this video, up to 720p. Due to resource and other restrictions, this is the only stream we can send; if you have trouble viewing it, please make sure you have sufficient bandwidth.
thank you so much, @RiffTrax for having good/proper Chromecast support on your site!
