It "just worked" last time I tried it from the Chrome browser in Linux, 
and I also played with some Python code to tickle it.  Looks like 
there's now a utility called Mkchromecast if you don't feel like being 
tied to a browser: http://mkchromecast.com/

I just figured I'd loan it to you for testing and take some money if you 
wanted to keep it.
