First of all, super happy that chromecast is supported. Secondly, I'm visiting a rural area for a few weeks and am using chromecast to watch on the big tv. I've been having a problem where I can't lower chromecast quality, and it always buffers after awhile, since this connection is only 2 down and 1 up. When I watch on my computer screen, I don't have the problem because I can lower the quality. I've searched around and couldn't find anything. I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

You can try casting your desktop via chrome, then playing the video in low quality and then going full screen. Make sure you dont cast the tab, but instead the whole desktop. Thatway the chrome cast acts just as a second screen.

Hope it helps
