Overall is good I would rate it 5 stars when it gives suport to avi. Dont blame chromecast about the files its support because i can screen cast avi files with the chromecast. But sometimes when you are screen casting you get audio errors because its still a beta.

Meh ... Facebool Low Quality Cast, Missing Album items, No Slideshow & No App Configurations Works, fast, but the quality is very low. Pictures are so compressed on Cast that they are pixelated. Most videos on Facebook are missing ?! No slideshow options or app configuration
