Here are some more details from Ryken Studio on myTube's casting feature on Windows 10:
"Casting is done by pressing the button (with the casting icon) to the left of the big play button on the video page, then picking a device from the list that comes up. The app will automatically start casting to whichever device they picked. If they are already playing a video on their phone/PC screen, just tap the video to bring up the player controls, and casting button will appear at the top."
"Casting currently works with DLNA devices, which means most smart TVs, most game consoles, and most media focused set-top-box such as the Roku. Essentially most things except for the Chromecast. Chromecast support will come in a future update."
The developer also offered us some more information on the myTube update:
" For desktop users, video playback now occurs within a frame on the video page, rather than immediately going full screen like the mobile version did. This makes it much better for mouse and keyboard users, who can now click the fullscreen button or use Alt + Enter to go fullscreen. Desktop users also get volume control."
"On Windows 10, videos can be added to the watch later list directly from upload notifications in the action center. Windows 10 users also get a new live tile, which is much more reliable on low end devices. Windows 10 desktop users can now also use the themes and color schemes that have always been available in the mobile version."
