I'm using my chromecast to watch files stored on the same network. But when I lose connection to to my ISP, chromecast gets stuck trying to talk to the internet and is useless for watching things from Plex. I know Plex still works, because I can watch it on my Ouya.

So, the question is, are there any tricks out there to make a STOCK chromecast think it is able to talk to the internet? Can I run a local server and point chromecast to my local server when it attempts to see if it online?

Nope, It needs internet to load up the receiver apps it uses to play...

Technically you should be able to continue playing locally once that is loaded without Internet access but the device may now sense the loss and unload apps to report the loss of connection.

and you can't spoof the whitelist server because it uses HTTPS and Chromecast only has the certificates for the Google server.

Adding a certificate for your own local server requires root.
