macOS and Mac Apps
I am one of the few that opted for the Google Chromecast over the Apple TV, as it provides the easiest experience for me to play Netflix on any of my TV's with my current array of iOS devices. Additionally, there is no extra boxes around my TBV;s. However, there is an issue that I am not sure if it is Chrome's or Netflix's issue. When playing movies off of my Mac OS 10.9 with Chrome 30.0.1599... I am unable to find any of the control buttons. After interacting with the window, Voice Over states that it is an empty window. I know there should be the basic array of control buttons, and the most important Chromecast button. I can cast the tab through the toolbar, but this only includes the video aspect of the window and not the audio. Anyone have a guess as to the main culprit? I am guessing Netflix as they still have other accessibility items we work around. Otherwise, as I have not seen any other comments on Chromecast on this site, it is a nice little device. I was able to set it up without sighted assistance, from my Mac and iPhone. It is very limited at this point, but half the reason I picked it up is to play with some Droid devices in the near future.

ChromeCast, Netflix, and the Mac
how do you set it up without assistance
... as iI read that you have to input in the app a number that appears on the tv screen... beside that, i want to buy it because it seems less tlimited than apple tv, you can play divx files and other format which are not supported by apple tv..
seting up the Chromecast on Android 4.4.4
you don't have to imput any code into the Chromecast. their is a code on the tv screen but all you do is double tap the "I see the code" button. then you select your wifi network and enter the password if need be. it will ask you to name the chrome cast, put whatever you want, and it downloads the latest chrome cast software. TalkBack will tell you to click continue when the update is downloaded. then you're good to go. all you do is select chrome cast from the notification area.
I have a problem with my Chrome cast though. I no this forum isn't for android but I wanted to share my experience. so when I set up the chrome cast, everything was working correctly. the tv was turned off without disconnecting my phone from the chrome cast. what should I do?
Please Stay On Topic
As you stated yourself in your above post, AppleVis is not an Android site; therefore, this is probably not the best place to post questions about Chromecast which do not relate specifically to using it with Apple products.
