I am really on the fence about getting a CC but the only real uses I see are the occasional screen mirroring, netflix, and youtube. i would do a local media server from my home computer but i'd rather run smoothvideo project and get 60fps and just use my 15ft hdmi cable, but if I had the ability to just use my phone to tell my CC to start playing music while im winding down at night i'd but it in a heartbeat, would this be possible with any of the awesome things you guys have done with CC? for reference I am talking about http://www.di.fm which is an awesome free (I paid to remove ads + boost quality) stream for electronic music. Thanks guys.

Spoticast is sure useful for Spotify. He was however asking for Internet radio or specifically di.fm. Tunein has them but does not currently support chromecast. I have been tipped myself about Audials https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id=com.audials which supports chromecast. Have never tested it myself and not sure if it has the same stations like tunein. I'm also not sure about how it works with subscribed stations.

Just use MirrorEnabler.apk to screencast the entire screen and any app.

It should pass any audio that would be going out your phone over to the chromecast. Can't say I personally tested it when in the background however.
