vGet detects videos embedded in websites and allows to download them or play them via DLNA directly on a Smart TV.
The extension is designed to be minimal-invasive. It is only loaded only on demand, when the vGet button is clicked. So it has no performance impact nor does it use any memory while not used. Other similar extensions out there basically sniff all network traffic regardless if used or not. This unnecessarily drains performance. (Use chrome://inspect/#extensions -> Extensions to verify. There should not be any entry while not used).
Play Videos directly on your Smart TV
vGet supports DLNA/UPnP to play (cast) videos directly on a DLNA-Device in your local network. Many devices out there support DLNA, for example Smart TVs, XBox, MediaCenters, AllShare Devices etc. vGet does not relay the video stream but streams directly from the internet. This saves battery life - the video even keeps playing when you switch off your Chromebook completely. So vGet offers Chromecast-like functionality without requiring additional hardware.
This requires vGet Cast (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/vget-cast-dlna-controller/ekdjofnchpbfmnfbedalmbdlhbabiapi
) to ve installed
