_20131212_115416It seems that when we announced about the 10 new apps with the ability to cast to Chromecast on Tuesday, we missed that one can also stream locally and cloud stored content to your TV.

RealPlayer Cloud, which launched in September, now lets users watch their local and cloud videos on their TV through Chromecast. The company says that with its SurePlayTM technology, RealPlayer Cloud ensures videos cast from the app are automatically formatted to give viewers the highest quality experience possible.

Once sent to the TV, users can control playback of the video via the RealPlayer Cloud app on their mobile device or PC.

RealPlayer Cloud is free to download and gives users in the U.S. and Canada 2 GB of cloud storage for free, but requires you to sign up for a free account. Subscription plans with more storage are also available starting at $4.99 per month.
