Sounds like you're repeating the tests that many people have already done. Tab-casting is not perfectly smooth even on a very fast computer running at less than 12% CPU utilization in my experience. I would guess that the most likely explanation is a poor implementation in Google's "beta" code combined with too little buffering.
Yes, and an efficient mirroring model would hook into the display updates rather than continually "scraping" the screen. I feel like it's someone at Google's pet project and they've been busy with other mainstream stuff like troubleshooting all the fringe router issues.
I tried the Chromecast Video extension on my laptop and can get similar results.
I'm pretty sure it is something with chrome or the extension itself.
I'd agree with the previous poster(s) that the extension simply doesnt work that well, however it sounds like other people in this thread have gotten it to work.
hopefully someone can help me. i cannot stream movies taken from my phone (nexus 5) to my chromecast without severe lag. 1080p videos i downloaded from youtube will play fine however. all stored on the same phone in the same folder. i have tried dropping the resolution down to 720 to see if that would help but it does not. i have tried allcast, avia, you name it i have tried the app. i figured it must be my old router so i went to walmart today and dropped $200 on a top of the line new router. linksys smart wifi router ac. http://www.linksys.com/en-eu/products/routers/EA6500 supposedly the fastest router available at walmart. anyways not any better. is there a certain way i need to set up this router for maximum bandwidth? there is a smart wifi app by linksys that allows me to set priorities to each device to make sure they get the most bandwidth and i set them to the cc and my n5. my regular internet is through centurylink and it's only a 10 MB connection ( the fastest they have) but that shouldn't matter since i'm casting from my phone to the router and the router to the cc right? any advice (in laymans terms) would be greatly appreciated
