- no chromecasts for sale on amazon?
the lads just signed up to prime, i told him he could cast prime videos to his tv rather than hdmi but he’d need a chromecast.
looking on amazon, (which he wants to use as hes just got prime obv) theyre unavailable.
rather than buy a copy, i thought id ask on here first, as if theyre unavailable on amazon i wondered if theres some sort of amazon vs google war, and it wouldnt be any use anyway?
whats his best course of action to watch amazon prime vids on his tv?

aye amazon is a pain, when I use prime, occassionally. I just cast a tab from desktop to the tele, quality isn’t 100% and you need to make sure you computer isn’t running slow or it’ll be stuttery.
But it usually works if the comp is decent.
It’s how I’m watching the tour just now. Using the 7 day eurosport free trial at the minute.Posted 1 week agoshuhockeyMember
Google and Amazon feud now over supposedly. So youtube coming to amazon stuff and prime on chrome.Posted 1 week agosam_underhillSubscriber
As above, they’ve resolved their differences. For now at least. I noticed Prime video android phone app now has a cast button. I’ve not yet installed youtube on my firestick, but I’d wager that you’d also be able to cast youtube from your phone to that as well.Posted 1 week agosam_underhillSubscriber
I can confirm casting to the firestick works. I tried to do a back to back comparison with the chromecast, watching the same youtube video of Gee Atherton’s Les Gets DH course preview.Posted 6 days ago
At the start of the video as he rode across the meadows it seemed a little more jerky on the firestick (possible playback frame rate issues?), but after a few watches I became less convinced there was much difference at all.
