Chromecast via opera???

  • I'm just wondering if its possible to run a Chromecast from the opera browser. I read a post before where someone claimed to have it working in opera27, which was in beta at the time. I downloaded the chrome extensions on opera add on and the google cast extension from the chrome app store and installed it. Unfortunety when i click on it, it just brings up a blank box where my chromecast should be listed along with various options.
    Is there any workaround to get it functioning or any plans for same. Despite the new opera being very similar to chrome, i don't like using chrome and i've used Opera for years (12.17 being my first choice, mostly because of the integrated mail) Opera is a brand i trust and would prefer if i could do everything from it and not have to bother with chrome at all.

  • I tried it on the same way like you and Chromecast still doesn't work. I use Opera on every system and don't want to install chrome only to use chomecast.

  • Same here. Downloaded Opera today (6/3/2016) and the Google Cast extension still brings a blank screen. Like Opera much better can Chrome otherwise.
