Pause/Fast Forward CC From Netflix etc.
« on: December 07, 2013, 11:36:50 AM »
Is there a way to pause or ff a program when chromecast is getting the stream directly from - for instance - Netflix versus casting a tab from my browser (Chrome)?  I am old and sometimes my bladder can't make it through a complete movie.  If I am casting a tab then I can just pause from the browser.  What if the chromecast device is getting its feed directly from Netfix?

Also, is it possible to abort a video currently streaming through chromecast when it is getting the feed directly from the source a opposed to me streaming a tab?

All in all it looks like a pretty cool little gadget.  I just wish I could control it from the same device with which I started the feed initially.

Bump

I still have not found out if there is a way, when streaming directly to Chromecast from a website such as Netflix to tell the device to pause or even stop?  Being able to select direct stream instead of the data having to come in through my router/hub to my desktop/laptop and then re-transmit it back through the LAN would save a chunk of in-house bandwidth.  Only thing is, I still need to be able to pause or abort the stream.  Is there a way to accomplish that?

Somebody know if it's possible to even DO what I want to do? :'(
