Google's Chromecast is now an open platform. The company has launched an official Google Cast SDK for any app makers interested in supporting the $35 HDMI dongle. "That means even more of our favorite movies, TV shows and music will become available on Chromecast as developers work with the SDK," the company said in a blog post. Since launching Chromecast last year, Google has gradually brought on new partners like HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Plex, and others. But now the doors have opened up to everyone, meaning the potential of Google's video streaming stick could skyrocket in the months and weeks to come. Chromecast owners won't need to do anything to enjoy the expanded support; the device has already been updated to take advantage of the Google Cast SDK.

Chromecast is amazing. For me it scratches an itch I had at my parents house when I would go there.

I just want someone to come out with an App tha allows local movies to play from the device.  You can do this right now via Chrome, but its hokey and not setup to do it properly.
