The Google Chromecast has been out for awhile in America and now also in a decent amount of other countries. Since its release we have seen several very helpful updates that make the experience of using the dongle as pleasant as possible. The latest update to the YouTube experience on the Chromecast brings the long awaited for ability to stream live and private videos from the video sharing site.
Google has officially announced these two new features and while the limitation never interfered with my ability to use my Chromecast, I can see where they were a setback for some users. While the live video playback is live, it can only be done from a desktop as of now. Private video casting can be done from any device just as long as you’re the content owner and the video is on your YouTube account.
Right now the Chromecast cannot playback any video that was marked by the content owner as a video that they do not want played back on mobile devices. Hopefully this will change soon so that there are no limitations to the dongle’s video experience.
