Chromecast plays nice with AllCast again

When Googles $35 Chromecast HDMI dongle offered a simple, affordable way to sync streaming content like Netflix and Youtube between a smartphone and a television, developer Koushik Dutta saw a chance. He created AllCast, an app that could augment those streaming services with media that users already owned, beaming pictures, audio and video files to the Chromecast. Just days after release, Google blocked that app, forcing Dutta to focus on DLNA-capable devices instead. In a Google+ post, Dutta writes that one of Googles own Chromecast developers actually just reached out to inform him that the Chromecast would support his app once more, adding the missing Android media router framework he needed in the brand new Chromecast SDK.
