Videojs Chromecast Plugin

Chromecast Plugin v 4.5

Chromecast is a device developed by Google that simply plugs into a TV for playback of content from a smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop. Since 2013, Google sold more than 30 million Chromecasts.
VideoJS Chromecast Plugin by Nuevodevel works fine with browsers that support Chromecast (desktop Chrome, Edge, Opera, Chrome on Android). The plugin automatically detects Chromecast support and displays Cast Button in the top right corner of the player. If you have Chromecast device connected to your TV you can test demo video above.

See example of the video.js player, with Nuevo plugin and Chromecast plugin setup code.
