Anyone have Chromecast? How's the browser streaming?

How's the browser streaming for video websites that don't have specific apps, such as gametrailers or espn3?

Also,related, it seems google is blocking apps that let you play your own media as well.

I feel as though the browser streaming is pretty sucky. The quality (FPS, resolution, and consistency) is noticeably lower. However, you'll still be able to tell what is happening on whatever video. In my case, I would tab-stream twitch.tv onto my TV.

I wouldn't recommend it because the quality really bothers me. I'd rather just HDMI it.

Ah thanks. Maybe a later iteration or software update will make it better.
