Google's Chromecast is already a very powerful HDMI streaming dongle, but today the inexpensive device gained support for three heavy hitters in the online media realm. Rdio, Crackle, and VUDU have all released apps for the device, and now allows users to stream music, watch internet videos, and stream movies from their VUDU digital collection straight from the Chromecast.




Rdio, VUDU, and Crackle have all released updated versions of their apps for iOS and Android to enable Chromecast support, making them the latest three content providers to join the Chromecast revolution. While Rdio and Crackle offer their normal services to casting, VUDU allows its users to stream HDX quality copies from the users digital collection as well as control playback, subtitles, and more, however, not all VUDU content is supported, and is based on each particular studio's licensing.
