Gnomecast (for casting media to Chromecast)

Just stumbled across this gem!

This is a native Linux GUI for casting local files to Chromecast devices. It supports:

  • Both audio and video files (anything ffmpeg can read)
  • Realtime transcoding (only when needed)
  • Subtitles (embedded and external SRT files)
  • Fast scrubbing (waiting 20s for buffering to skip 30s ahead is wrong!)
  • 4K videos on the Chromecast Ultra!

Running it on my personal machine running Ubuntu Mate Jammy, seems to be working fine…streaming from my server, to our bedroom ChromeCast dongle plugged into a TV we have in the bedroom

Might work just fine on a RPi as well

Or I guess I could install Google Chrome…but bleh
