    So I finally got the Chromecast delivered to my house and it's pretty awesome. I tried sideloading the Chromecast app to the q10 but it didn't work. So last night I sideloaded the new version of youtube onto my q10 and I was playing with it and it worked great, but I tried it again this morning and the Chromecast button showed up on the youtube app, which wasn't there yesterday. So I tried it and it sent content from my q10 to my TV via Chromecast! Awesome!

    Thumbs a blaze on THE Q10.

    If you can provide the app version numbers that will assuredly help people trying this same thing. Sounds like you have a great setup!

    Absolutely! i have a couple android devices and I used an app that extracts apks, cleverly named "apk extractor". I then sent the youtube apk to my email,downloaded the apk file and then converted the apk to bar with a debug token. The latest version of youtube is 5.0.21. You also need a chromecast, I'm trying to see if I can get netflix to stream. Updates later....

    Has anyone been able to get any other chromecast apps to work on their blackberry 10 device?
    I have downloaded and tried real player, all cast and Avia, but none of them can find the chromecast. You Tube is the only one I can find so far.

    Chromecast now relies on Google services, which still failed when loaded. This needs to be figured but...

    I've managed to download Avia from Amazon Apps to my Z30 and it does identify all my device media ie movies, music and pics. Thus far I haven't tried running anything through a Chromecast dongle as I've arranged to run a few tests at PC World before purchasing the dongle. I'll let you know how I get on, the only other option I found was to use Miracast through a Netgear PTV3000 which apparently runs smoother but comes with a 70 price tag.

    Can the Chromecast do screen mirroring like the miracast dongles?
    Searching through the forums, there doesn't seem to be a miracast dongle that comes highly recommended for the Q10.

    Netgear push2tv works perfectly based on what I have seen on the forums it's probably the best option, but pricey. The model is ptv3000.

    Yep, I just click on the cast button. It loads for a minute or so then pops right up on the TV

    Netflix works like a charm now! I only wish I could use Plex! The cast icon shows but when you press it no devices is found.

    Anyone have any luck with Plex and Chromecast?
