Default Chromecast Youtube Video

I found this YouTube video on the Chromecast. Most of the usage is well known but at 6:15 into it they mentioned the Chrome PC extension settings which isn't much. There appears to be some hidden settings called Custom Mirror Settings that can be uncovered and might being interesting to some.

Unless this has already been covered and I missed it???

Yes the GoogleCast Ext will do Mirroring....
When you click on Icon and see the Menu right under the mouse is a little arrow that when you click will let you select between Cast Tab, Cast Screen and Audio Mode....the Cast Screen is still experimental and if you have Multiple Monitors it will cast all monitors since there is no way to select which monitor you want to cast.

It's proof that Mirroring is Possible with the Hardware side of CCast, Just a matter of supporting it with better software than the GoogleCast and incorporating it into the DIAL Menu options.
