Revision3 Chromecast Integration is Here!

December 10th, 2013 at 08:00 by Kaliel Roberts in Announcements, Technology, Website

It is our great pleasure to announce the integration of the Revision3 site and apps with Chromecast. If you have the Chromecast device,  you’ll be able to cast any of our HD videos to your TV using your phone, tablet or laptop. In fact, you’ll be able to turn your phone or tablet into a video input for your TV – basically, your device becomes a super-remote controlling your television. We’ve been casting to our TV using YouTube  and Netflix for a while and now you can enjoy it with Revision3 videos across all devices. You can start by watching a video on how to make yourself fly like Superman, in the movies.

What we find especially exciting about Chromecast integration is that it ends all this device-switching while treating the phone and the tablet as first-class video delivery platforms. You can start watching a video on your phone or tablet, and then cast it in-progress to your TV once you walk into your living room. Or, start by casting a video from your phone or tablet to your TV, then pause it and take it with you into the kitchen or off to work. Chromecast makes your TV just another screen, bypassing the complexity of integrating with the multiplying numbers of set top platforms.

Certainly our team has had a great time working on this Chromecast integration. Here’s a picture of our developers watching Revision3 on TV using Chromecast. Thanks guys!

  • Our favorite Chromecast integrated apps, featured on Google.

When you have your Chromecast device plugged into your  TV, an icon Chromecast Icon will appear on your app or browser indicating you can cast it to your TV . Click it and it will find your Chromecast and cast the video to your TV.

Enjoy!


Watch Revision3 Shows on your TV via Google Chromecast

Revision3 is dedicated to giving our millions of loyal users the best possible viewing experience. Google’s Chromecast is a simple yet powerful device that shares our vision, and together we’ll adapt your living room totake advantage of big screens, familiar interfaces and a world of online content.

With today’s release of this new device, Revision3 is thrilled to announce that we have been working with Google to bring our all-original content to the Internet Generation. In the very near future, you’ll be able to “cast” Revision3 content to the biggest screen in your house from your laptop, phone or tablet… all with the click of a button.

With the Chromecast plugged into the HDMI port of your television, you can start/stop video, control its playback and volume, and even pick up the playback on another device. What’s more is that multiple people can take over and control the same screen, so everyone can participate in the experience.

Perhaps best of all, Chromecast works brilliantly with applications built on Android, iOS and HTML5. We’re excited to launch across all three platforms in the upcoming months, so please stay tuned!
