Gigaom is reporting that Plex for Chromecast might be closer than we think. They point to a post on Reddit where a user found some code that points to Chromecast functionality.
A Reddit user first spotted a file called Chromecast.xml in a recent version of the Plex Media Server software this week. Upon closer inspection, it looks like the file is one of a number of device profiles that the software uses to determine whether it has to transcode a video file before streaming it to a media player. I asked the makers of Plex about it, but haven’t heard back.
If this is true then there will be many happy people as Plex and local media playback have been high on the wishlist for many Chromecast owners. Hit the link below for the source.
