Well this got me thinking if we can't root can we make "Chromecast" believe we are using Google Movies when in fact it is a 3rd party app?
Wouldn't we just need to find the string that communicates that the 3rd party app is Google Movies, or Pandora or any of the Official Apps?
I could be wrong but I think there is away to make it work but it'll have to be built in the 3rd party's app.
I had thought about this just before KyoCast appeared, but I'm pretty sure it would be against the DIAL registry's registration and/or Cast SDK's license for an app to impersonate another app. I still like the concept though.
Actually, even if an app used another app's DIAL ID, the whitelist would still point the Chromecast-side app to the real app, (ie, phone might run SneakyApp by Chromecast would still launch its Google Movies app), I think.
