I have a 16.04 box running Kodi (15.2+dfsg1-3ubuntu1), and would like to have a cast to Kodi-option.
I’m aware that Kodi supports AirPlay, but support for this on Android phones, Windows and OpenSuSE clients is limited. The browser used on clients is Chrome / Chromium, and thus a Chromecast-like solution would be preferred.
I don’t need exactly what Chromecast provides; installing additional plugins/software (on both clients and Kodi) is acceptable.
A solution that can stream movies stored on the remote device, and content like YouTube is preferred over a solution that only works with limited media types.
So is there any good way to cast content from Chrome / Chromium on Windows, Android and Linux, to Kodi?
