    might as well get hdmi to hdmi connector since the dongle need to be powered and power sockets are already limited near the TV areas. would had been great if the dongle do not need to be externally powered up.

    • The dongle can be powered by USB on the TV if it has, but you’re right. THe package comes with a HDMI extender but it’s not too long either T_T

    can it work on Sony KDL-46EX400 for watching normal .rmvb, .mkv & etc??

    the device is connected to the wifi right?
    so is a must, to get a high or much stable wifi modem router, so can get better wifi signal?

    The Chromecast can actually do more than just what was shown. Unfortunately, most of those services are not available here in Malaysia.

    Hey, is there a list of compatible devices for Chromecast? I can’t seem to find the chromecast sign on Youtube videos for my tablet and smartphone. Or does it only works for certain Android versions?

    • Let me get back to you on that one =)

    My guess, does it only cast only activities on Google apps? Can it does more than what that actually shown in the video? Any references on what Chromecast can do other than this?


    Chromecast itself is a nano computer that runs You Tube and selected programmes. It needs Wifi to run. Your mobile phone or PC acts as a remote control. So it actually streams from the external server directly to Chromecast dongle.

    The is different from other devices in the market that streams from your mobile or computer. This will (a) drain your battery on your mobile device and (b) clogs up your Wifi router.
