 +====Casting to Chromecast====
 +Trying to find free apps to use to cast to Chromecast.  Did not have any luck; here are results 20200314:
 +^App name^Notes^
 +|Video cast for chromecast|5 min limit else pay $10|
 +|Elmedia Video Player|Plays video directly (not screen cast) for 1 min, works, $10|
 +|MKV Omni Player|never connected to cast|
 +|Stream to Smart TV|All options cost $$|
 +|Mirror to Smart TV|Choppy video and no audio. Only "works" with "Fast TV" option. Smooth TV and Audio never does anything|
 +|Just Stream|Looks like it's starting but stops without any casting|
 +|Oka Mirror|Isn't able to find any devices, even without VPN|
 +|Mirror Screen for Smart TV|Works but only for 3 mins|
 +Note: MacBook must be on exactly the same LAN as the TV.
