Cast from laptop to TV via Plex
Is it possible to cast from the media server/web app to my television without a PlexPass?

I think I understand it correctly to say that if I pay for the app I can cast from Plex on my N5 to Chromecast, but what about from my laptop to Chromecast (without PlexPass)?

^ In theory yes, but a lot of people are having trouble getting the cast icon to appear in Plex Web according to the Plex Web forum. I have two Win7 computers running Plex Web side by side, and I can get the cast icon to appear on one, but not the other. So far Plex doesn't have an explanation except to say that it's experimental and blame the Google Cast plugin in Chrome.

Is it their intention to allow this, or just something that can done?
