For now you can use the Chromecast chrome extension to throw the whole tab on the screen, but laptops and nongaming PCs will struggle to smoothly stream 1080p as the extension method uses local resources. Native DIAL integration pulls content directly from the servers so whatever device operates as the remote doesn't experience any load.

Using chromecast tabs would be slow and buggy so its not really even a for now item. If netflix drm supports it we know it should be cake for CR since CR is flash based which is much simpler. Though whole point is smartphone control on par with what we do with the xbmc version of CR.

I would love to see this as well. It should be easy to update the existing android app to chromecast it.

Yeah. I really hope it gets added to both the android and iOS versions in the not too distant future.

+1 support.

My PS3 acts up a lot when playing via the Crunchyroll app (don't believe its a fault of the app, but rather the device) and I'll be needing an alternative means to stream from CR soon.

Just subscribed to Crunchyroll a month ago, and my Chromecast should arrive today or tomorrow. I'd love to get rid of my old Roku, but for now I'll have to keep it hooked up until Crunchyroll supports Chromecast :-P

Support Chromecast and I will get a premium membership.
and adding One Piece to your catalog would be nice too.

This needs to happen. I recall reading that it only takes a few lines of code to add support. Google made it really easy.

The tabbed browsing from your computer will work, any media played through your Chrome browser will stream to the Chromecast. Streaming content from your mobile device, however, is limited to supported apps. So far it's just Youtube, Netflix, and Google Play Music and Movies & TV.

My workaround in the meantime is stream CR from my chrome tab on my computer and control my computer via Splashtop from my phone. It's a little clunky controlling the videos, but it's been smooth otherwise. Having the direct app support would be ideal.

Yes please have this option available. This would be great and low cost to use for streaming video rooms in conventions or anime clubs!

Yes please.

Chromecast is becoming my favorite way to watch Netflix. All I need now is Hbo go, Hulu, amazon instant, and of course, Crunchyroll.
