hi everyone, connecting from Seattle Airport with connection speeds pushing 300 baud - Charlie Isaacs
300 baud - luxury - Keith Teare
i remember 128 baud - Keith Teare
Friend of mine did and said this, "it's been exceptional. I've tried it with my windows PC, macbook, nexus 7, Nexus 4 and Galaxy Note 10.1 I've been able to stream music, YouTube videos at very good quality. Video and sound is great with no lag, unlike when I try to stream from my smart TV or gaming consoles. There was a little trouble though. I couldn't play music or movies that I sideloaded to a device, because the Chromecast only fetches media from the cloud. However, I solved that problem by using my Plex media manager. It actually served as. kind of proxy, so I'm able to play music and movies stored locally on personal network. So, in short: *I LOVE IT!*" - Matthew Voshell
it's that episode of Breaking Bad is it? - Kevin Marks
Send for Pres. Obama! He'll catch that fly in no time. - Alex de Soto
