Google responds to blocking local video playback from Chromecast apps

http://www.talkandroid.com – Yesterday, we found out that the latest Chromecast update disabled support for ‘video_playback’,  which made apps such as Koushik Dutta’s AllCast and Leon Nicholls’ Fling useless. Granted, the only reason why were were able to use these apps were because Koush was able to reverse engineer the Chromecast protocols, thus allowing newly developed apps to run on all Chromecasts, not just whitelisted ones. Google was obviously not too happy about this and made changes with the latest update. My assumption was that Google won’t make local or networked content friendl (IT news)
