Chromecast is a blast, no doubt about it. A small USB stick-like device that can do magic with your TV is something that might interest even skeptics. Streaming YouTube videos or some other multimedia was never so easy. Not so long ago, we talked about Google making the Chromecast SDK available to developers. As you will read in a moment, Android-Chromecast is capable of doing some really amazing things.
XDA Senior Member dakdroid, who also created the rather interesting music player beat, created another useful app. This time, your phone or tablet will easily stream media directly from your device to your TV. The list of supported formats is quite long, including H.264, MP4, and WebM. Using this application is extremely easy, as all you need to do is connect via the LocalCast app, select a video, and relax watching some of your favorite local media.
If you are a happy user of one of the smallest Google devices and have a phone or tablet with Android greater than 2.3, you should definitely visit the application thread and give LocalCast a shot.
