Cast All The Things allows you to send videos from many, many online sources to your Chromecast.
Cast All The Things allows you to send videos from many, many online sources (YouTube, Vimeo, and a few hundred others) to your Chromecast. It also allows you to cast local files.
You can install Cast All The Things with pip:
pip install catt
catt is only compatible with Python 3. If you need a Python 2-compatible version, please install 0.5.6, the last py2-compatible release.
To use Cast All The Things, just specify a URL:
catt cast "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZMfhtKa-wo"
CATT supports any service that youtube-dl supports, which includes most online video hosting services.
CATT can also cast local files (if they’re in a format the Chromecast supports natively):
catt cast ./myvideo.mp4
You can also control your Chromecast through catt commands, for example with catt pause. Try running catt --help to see the full list of commands.
CATT can utilize a config-file stored at ~/.config/catt/catt.cfg (%APPDATA%\catt\catt.cfg on Windows).
The format is as following:
[options] device = chromecast_one [aliases] one = chromecast_one two = chromecast_two
In the [options] section, device denotes the default device that will be selected, when you have not selected a device via the cli.
You can write your choice of default device to catt.cfg by doing:
catt -d <name_of_chromecast> write_config
In the [aliases] section, you can specify aliases for the names of your chromecasts. You can then select a device just by doing:
catt -d <alias> <command>
Currently, in order to take advantage of this functionality, you need to manually edit catt.cfg
If you want to contribute a feature to CATT, please open an issue (or comment on an existing one) first, to make sure it’s something that the maintainers are interested in. Afterwards, just clone the repository and hack away!
To run CATT in development, you can use the following command:
python -m catt.cli --help
- Free software: BSD license

- From many, many online sources.
