Chromecast to Get Vimeo and Red Box Support, HBO Go and Plex Coming Next

A $35 dongle termed the Chromecast came on the scene last week. Google was the parent company that released this smart device. It allows you to transfer a video from your mobile or computer to your TV screen. But there is a proviso. The video has to have its origins in YouTube, Netflix, Google Play or a Chrome Tab. GigaOM reports that Vimeo is also planning to launch its Chromecast app. Meanwhile, Verizon's Redbox also have plans to feature the device via their instant service. Plex developers are looking into the matter too. HBO Go will get the support system too. Google TV and Nexus Q were sophisticated beyond this gadget which sports more homely features. Yet they were scrapped and this product is destined to continue. It is a dark polymer dongle with a single button on it. A cable, cord and adaptor accompany the device.

You can connect it through Wi-Fi. It is an experience alright. Video streaming was never better. And everything looks so crystal clear on screen. There is even capacity for HTML5 and Flash. All sorts of content can be shifted on to your television. Though possessing merely a week-long existence, the Chromecast dongle is already making waves. It is Google’s rejoinder to Apple TV. Other services that may feature on this device in the future are: Pandora, Slacker Radio, Stitcher and Rdio. Spotify meanwhile will require some cajoling to lure into the fold.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
