Linux.com has put together a quick tutorial on how to stream content to Chromecast from a machine running Linux, giving you an incredibly inexpensive and effective way to stream your own capture media.

The author took this a step further, showing you how to set up your Android devices to stream to Chromecast as well. Learn how to here.
