Ok, here it is. The first public beta of CheapCast, an App that let's your Android Device emulate a ChromeCats Dongle. I decided to put this up for free since I believe it could potentially useful to a whole lot of people. If you like it and it works for you, feel free to just use one of the Donation options within the App.

I will also make the Source Code available in the near future (I'm still cleaning it a bit up). Just watch this space: https://github.com/mauimauer/cheapcast
I hope to further improve the App and welcome anybody who wants to contribute.

In my first PoC-Video I've showed CheapCast with YouTube, I've just uploaded another video showing Google Music streaming to a Nexus 7 running CheaCast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ktmr...ature=youtu.be

As this is the first public Beta please expect things to fail. I appreciate your feedback. Please log your issues/bugreports here: https://github.com/mauimauer/cheapcast/issues

Hope you enjoy it.

Get it on the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...maui.cheapcast
or download it here: http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23060877489999237

Awesome concept, but I cannot get my Revue to cooperate at all. It force closes every single time I try to start the service. I've tried multiple reboots and re-installs. Blah this Revue is a POS.

Like it a lot!!!!
Works OK so far. Great concept for sure!! I can get all 3 of my Samsung device to connect but can only get you tube to play. I keep getting errors when using Google play music. Says unable to play requested song.... Anyway, I have my galaxy note 8.0 and also a galaxy s4 connecting to a galaxy s2 skyrocket. I've even tried connecting just the note 8.0 and s4 and have the same issue. Hope to get this fixed soon... Would love to stream to my surround sound when I feel like jammin!

Reading this might help, Turn Your Extra Android Device into a Chromecast Receiver with CheapCast.
its to use one for sending and one for receiving, could be useful if u have a spare fone with hdmi.
