Netflix would be on your toaster if it had a display and an internet connection.

Netflix does have a bit more in the way of resources than CR, given that they have 35.7 million subscribers in the US alone, vs. CR's 200,000+ worldwide.

I dont see the chromecast option in the websites flash player, using goggle chrome with the chromecast extension.

I read a post its supposed to be between current playtime and autoplay - but there is nothing.

I guess nobody realized that 'Chromecast' has existed forever in the form of DLNA digital media controllers. Google just decided to bring it to the general audience by charging you for a device that accomplished what already could have been done. It's essentially exactly what we've been doing with our media devices all this time, or at least I have.

Google's Chromecast device offers nothing to me personally as a consumer that I didn't already have readily available in my home. I think all of us should have a TV device connected to our network already, and in that case why would you need a Chromecast?

I don't understand why so many users are eager to get a Chromecast now that Crunchyroll is available on it. Has everyone been living under a rock? Am I the only user that already has multiple routes of viewing Crunchyroll on my TV?

The only way the Chromecast is useful is if you have absolutely no TV devices connected to your network. If you have a TV that supports the Chromecast I have a hard time believing that you don't already have a device capable of this.

Apparently you don't know the difference between DLNA (streaming from one device on a local network to another) vs. what the Chromecast app does (streaming from the internet directly to the Chromecast, while using the device for control only).

Lets say you are streaming from your phone to a TV via DLNA. If you shut down you phone, does the stream continue? If not, then it certainly isn't doing the same thing as Chromecast. Chromecast is built on a protocol known as DIAL.

It always bothers me a bit when someone seems to think the entire world is like them (or the small group of people they know). Regardless of what your experience may be, there are going to be people that aren't.

Just because I have a PC, Roku 3, WD TV LIve, etc.. all attached to my PC doesn't mean I should expect everyone to have that equipment. Believe it or not, some people may have a HDTV that is "dumb", or at least doesn't support any functions that would make it useful for viewing CR. Not everyone has a Roku, Apple TV or other device (just looking at the sales numbers for those devices would tell you that). More people have a supported game console, but that still isn't every one.

Just because you personally don't see the need for something doesn't make it unnecessary.

Just got my Chromecast and it's pretty good.
Just watched some Gintama and Tonari No Seki-kun. I had 1 time where I had to wait for the buffer, but I'm guessing that has to do with my connection.
