Plex Media Player might soon start supporting Google Chromecast, a new XML profile appeared in the “profile” folder of the app suggests. What is Plex, btw?
“Plex’s frontend media player, Plex Home Theater (formerly Plex Media Center), allows the user to manage and play video, photos, music, and podcasts from a local or remote computer running Plex Media Server. In addition, the integrated Plex Online service provides the user with a growing list of community-driven plugins for online content including Hulu, Netflix, and CNN video.” (Wikiepedia)
New hints in the Plex software suggest that the service is soon to get Chromecast support. A file named “Chromecast.xml” shows up in the Profiles folder, in the software files. This is proof that the media server’s team is actively working with it, reports Chrome Spot.
Does this mean Google will soon officially support local content streaming to Chromecast?
