How about integrating Vera with Chromecast?

Hello everyone… I’m thinking about getting a Chromecast from Google. Has anyone thought about a plug-in or integrating it with Vera?

Chromecast seems to have very limited to no support here. I’ve been keeping an eye out for awhile now. You would think there is vast potential with being able to control your Chromecast or Chromecast supported apps via Vera for the sake of automation. But surprisingly that does not seem to be the case.

For performing a simple task, such as activating Chromecast in Google Play automatically, there is no solution. Nor is there any support. Supposedly there is a guy on Youtube that figured it out and keeps bragging about writing a plugin himself, but he refuses to release it. Just keeps responding with “I wrote a plugin myself to do it”.
