Of course Matt, I just sent the link to you.
And about the 5.1 sound, does that works ? I downloaded some videos with 5.1 surround, when I play directly from my HT it works on 5.1, but not when i play from chromecast... Does it works ?
Good morning wcb,
Well, yestarday I tried to watch Avatar 3D, it works fine in some simple scenes, but when you got action scenes, in each 2 secs I got stuck with BUFFER icon, so, for me its like it doesnt work at all, its imposible to watch a movie happening that.
My router is a 300 Mpbs and the PC that were casting got full connection, just dont know in which speed the Chromecast were connected (actually, I dont know how to see it), but the router is next to the TV.
Of course the movie I tested was in a good quality of video and sound, but it should be able to cast.

x264 Log :
I tried others 2D movies with good quality too and worked fine in all scenes i've tried. I just didnt test yet the DTS or DD5.1 sound to see if it really works well.
Actually i tested the 3D but for me the main reason of Chromecast is 2D movies, so its still great with Videostream :D
Hey all again,
One thing that I miss in videostream is when you stop the movie in some part of it, and after need to play again, you have to keep searching for the exact time you stopped (ofc, if you took note of it ). So would be nice/easier if when you put the mouse somewhere in the time bar, it shows that exact time you wanna jump to, this way you can go directly to that timming.
If we could load automatically the subtitle with the same name of the movie file would be great! I always had to load the subtitle, and now after the last update, after load it I still have to select it on a list.
Thanks, and sorry Lommelun to use your post, just to not create another one with a similar subject.
Tonight after the last update (here was 22:00 GMT-3) I started to watch a movie, and then after 30 min my PC went to sleep (while playing the movie). That never happened before, the action of "sleep" were blocked while playing movies, but now, here at least, it isnt. It's annoying, but not a big problem of course. I dont know if it is because of pro/free version, I got the pro version but after update I dont know where to see if I got the right version installed.
