AirCast: New Android app lets you stream any media file to Chromecast

Streaming locally stored videos and music with Google’s (s GOOG) Chromecast streaming stick just got a lot easier: Android hacker Koushik Dutta released an app this weekend that streams any video from your phone’s gallery, Google Drive or Dropbox to a Chromecast device within the same network. And the best thing: It’s not based on Google’s SDK, so you don’t need to jump through extra hoops to make it work. Check out a video of it here, and download the latest release of the Android app here.
