Google Working To Improve Video Stream Quality From Browser To Chromecast

In theory, it should be easy to cast videos from the Google Chrome web browser on your phone to a Chromecast supported device. The feature should work with any unsupported video a user comes across online, but it will benefit Amazon Video users the most since that service is unlikely to ever support Chromecast due to the Fire TV's existence.

High-quality Amazon Video streaming is coming to the Chromecast, thanks to Google. Once you start to play the video, expand the Chrome menu and then tap on the "Cast..." option to initiate the cast to your TV. Streaming the service's videos on their TV via the device is one of the last resorts for a user to view the content. Apart from this, the video often lags and drops frames when casted through the Chromecast onto the TV screens.

Chrome in the developer channel is getting improvements added to the tab casting feature which will introduce a noticeable speed increase and make it so that the function uses less power. For the time being, the latest update is restricted to the developer version of the Chrome. Cast the tab as you normally would, and witness the incredible buttery-smooth video playing on your TV. With that done, you can then put the video into full screen mode and the media remoting feature should kick in on its own. Mr Beaufort says this method will not only save battery life, but it will also keep the video quality intact as well. Since the quality is so bad, however, Amazon Video is essentially unavailable.

The chrome team is experimenting in Dev Channel with improving the "Cast a tab" experience by forwarding directly the video content bitstream to the Chromecast device when a video is fullscreened. Once Chrome has finished restarting, it's recommended to go to the vimeo website and you can pick any video you wish to stream. Follow this up with the cast a tab feature and then hit the fullscreen button to see what it looks like.
