Thanks Aaron , it is great to be able to use my chromecast again in XP thanks to your fix. I had phoned the Google chromecast help desk and they were no help at all. There seems to be no reason for them removing the chromecast extension as it worked perfectly but they do not seem to care.

Hello!!

I followed all the steps to get it on my OS X 10.8

I downloaded the right version Google Cast 15.1120.0.4
And it appears in my download list as boadgeojelhgndaghljhdicfkmllpafd-15.1120.0.4-Crx4Chrome.com

However it does NOT appear as a folder in the extention folder (/Users/eefsmeets/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default)

There are 8 folders but no new one appears - I downloaded this version many times, offline, online....

Extra tips would be appreciated!!!

Did you drag and drop the downloaded crx file onto the "chrome://extensions" page in Chrome?

If so, it should create the new folder inside /Users/eefsmeets/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/extensions/ (make sure you are looking in the "extensions" folder).

It will also show up as installed on the chrome://extensions page itself, and you will see the icon in your Chrome toolbar, if it installed.

Hi Gunter,

I read your fantastically clear instructions with great excitement at the prospect of connecting my old Windows Vista PC to my new Chromecast to play videos on my mother-in-law's TV, but unfortunately I may have 'missed the boat', being that https://www.crx4chrome.com/crx/49386/ does not appear to take me to the page where I can download the old extension anymore.

Any idea where else I could get it from?

Thanks in anticipation of a fix...

Nick

That is the correct page. There are several servers listed where you can download the file.

Look for the large, green "down arrows" on the page where it says:


Download Google Cast crx 15.1120.0.4:

Choose a server location to download the crx file:

Google CDN
Zippyshare
SendSpace
Crx4Chrome

Amazing! Thank you very much - managed to do this. The link didn't seem to work when I wrote last but did after your reply.

Thanks again!

Hi,

Superb topic! I have read in entirely and tried to install the extension in Opera. Two problems there. The Beta version is downloaded without problems and is immediately deleted upon installation. The second .crx file is installed, but Opera does not find my Chromecast.
Where can be the problem?
Thanx in advance.

I really can't help with Opera. I use either Chrome or Slimjet (a chromium browser) for casting.

You might try installing Chrome or Slimjet to see if the extension works from one of those browsers. If not, then it may be an issue with your router settings or something. I don't know if Opera has any setting that could interfere, such as the media router setting in Chrome, which must be disabled for Chrome 49 to use the extension.
