03 Feb 2014: Google Chromecast SDK Now Available to Developers, More Supported Apps to Come!
12 Jan 2014: All XDA internal links of the first two posts should be encrypted now (We want HTTPS on XDA!).

11 Dec 2013: Added a pretty big FAQ from @bhiga for this small device.

28 Jul 2013: First day of this index. Please everybody help to keep this up to date and post or send a PM to add new threads. As long as this
device is not available in my country, I hope for your help. Thank you very much!


I forgot your favorite Google Chromecast thread, forgot to update a thread or a thread is misplaced/unnecessary? I'm sorry. Please send me a PM or post it in the thread. I'll fix that.

Warning: Only apply compatible treatment to your device. Make sure you don't get into trouble. After all it would be your mistake. Not the developer, XDA or I am in charge, only you.

Thank you. As usual, I need help from the community, to keep this community relevant thread up to date or fill it for the beginning. Maybe @MikeChannon can pin this thread if he has some spare time.

If you find any helpful thread, post it, thank you!
