Submission + - Confirmed: ChromeCast will be able to play local content (

sfcrazy writes: As you all know about the story that ChromeCast update disabled the playback of local content. Many though, including me that Google is going Apple's path. But Google has confirmed that it will allow every kind of content. Google Statement: We’re excited to bring more content to Chromecast and would like to support all types of apps, including those for local content. It's still early days for the Google Cast SDK, which we just released in developer preview for early development and testing only. We expect that the SDK will continue to change before we launch out of developer preview, and want to provide a great experience for users and developers before making the SDK and additional apps more broadly available. So no need to fear!
