Default mirroring the chromecast through "Cast Screen" button

Hey guys, so I was looking to test out mirrorcase app to see if I can get it working on my chromecast (rooted), but then I saw the cast screen button in my drop down notification bar and I tested it and it played both video and sound no problem (I played news using Al JAzeera app and it mirrored perfectly)...I haven't tested it extensively though just like for 5 minutes, but it is AWESOME! I bet it's buggy though....I have provided a screenshot of it in the attached file...

Not at there moment well depends on the serial. But you don't need a rooted Chromecast to do what I did it's a stock feature..

On Android-L Dev Preview I am getting very bad stuttering audio...

I have tried the audio from within multiple games & the youtube app and its exactly the same so I think that this bug is in Android-L/Chromecast... but it is to be expected as A-LDP is a Preview release & this CC update is just a beta of course.

Perfect audio but very slight video stutter with fast moving objects in video
