    Re: Good alternative to videostream for chromecast

    Don't know how videostream does it, but it does not seem to use much cpu. Have never heard my fans come on when using videostream. With plex fans went to maximum and was not even trying to convert video, gnomecast had fans high converting/transcoding. TVs are in other rooms and chromecast has been easier to use than moving computer or getting very long HDMI cable.

    Question, by unticking/removing the google chrome line in software sources, will that prevent/disable chrome from updating and/or removing apps during future updates? I know it is bad to not update, but only use chrome for the videostream app. Use firefox and/or opera for most browsing.

    Removing the Goggle Chrome repository will prevent updates, of course, as that is the only source for those updates. Chromium OTOH comes from official sources.
