Chromecast

Postby mahoneyjn » Wed Jul 24, 2013 12:40 pm

Let me be the first to note how cool this would be if it supports chromecast. That would solve so many of the connectivity issues that happen in our meetinghouses. Imagine a class where everyone could display what the read in their personal scripture study or what they got out of the lesson for everyone else to see!

It might not be as practical for the mormon channel app. You would probably run into bandwidth issues but it would still be a good option.

The developers are looking at it. If they do implement it, we probably won't see it until late this year or early next because of the work already scheduled. I do agree that it would be nice for showing video content in meetinghouses without congesting the network as long as we get our TV's updated so we can plug in an HDMI and USB device. Our FM group was told to push back placement of new TV's in our area because of the budget.

FYI, there is another thread with discussion about Chromecast and whether it is suitable for meetinghouse use.

I agree that Chromecast would be great to have for use in church buildings. I would also add that it would be fantastic for me as a seminary teacher who teaches at home. I would love to be able to send pictures, videos, or quotes to the TV without being constrained by chords. All my students use the gospel library and it would also allow them to share. Hope to see this soon.

We've discussed in other threads that Chromecast's security seems non-existent. It might not be a smart idea to use it at church.

But that's not to say we shouldn't add it to GL. Just urging caution about some of the suggested uses.

I would say even if it's not used in meeting houses that it should be an implemented feature for home use. Being able to watch all the videos and listen to scriptures as a family on the Chromecast would be very helpful for fhe and family scripture study.

Chromecast support in the latest alpha works very well for videos however it would be awesome if it was also supported for audio only reading of the scriptures since it already can read all the verses sending it typo the Chromecast should be pretty easy. Anyways keep up the amazing work um also happy to see immersion mode make it in the latest build.

Android Gospel Library already does support screen casting for video, and you can use device mirroring to cast the audio using Google Cast.
