How to wire up your Opera browser with Chromecast

Thanks for choosing Opera! This version includes Chromecast support, city based news and improvements to Flow and site suggestions. More changes: - Chromium 89 - Large screen adaptations - Improved keyboard and mouse support - Autofill improvements. . The app does not support tab casting, like the Chromecast extension for the PC web browser. We cannot do anything to fix issues that arise on the server side (media content provider) such as failure to play or buffering, which is especially common during heavy load times and weekends. Today, the team behind the Opera browser released a new developer version of their product. Opera 50.0.2753.0 is now available for download and comes with Chromecast support. Advertisement Besides the ability to cast the content to Chromecast, Opera Developer 50.0.2753.0 adds cryptocurrencies conversions and continues bookmarks bar refactoring, which started in the previous developer release. TVs with built-in Chromecast or other smart functionality may be supported, but compatibility cannot be guaranteed with all models. You may experience issues when casting and recording simultaneously. Exiting or minimizing the Oculus app may interrupt casting. Casting may increase battery usage or degrade in-app performance.

  1. Get the Download Chrome extension from Opera add-ons catalog. This allows you to use Chrome extensions with the Opera browser. This pro tip might come in handy for other use cases, too.
  2. Go to the Chrome Web Store and get the Google Cast extension – it’s the official Google extension for sending content to Chromecast.
  3. Is your Chromecast device already plugged into the HDMI port on your display? Make sure both Chromecast and your computer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

As I mentioned above, Opera supports streaming from Google Cast-enabled sites. At this point, it’s YouTube and Netflix.

Why Chromecast?

Chromecast was first released in 2013 and quickly garnered good reviews and won over many users across the globe. According to a market report by Strategy Analytics, Chromecast was the most popular streaming device sold in 2015. It’s praised for being compact, affordable and convenient to manage with the device you’re streaming from.

On a side note, it’s expected that Google will release a new version of Chromecast supporting 4K video as soon as the beginning of October. I’m looking forward to checking that one out.
