WebInterface : Flash not supported. Please add chromecast support as alternative

Hello,

 

Everybody, I noticed that Arlo cameras now can stream to chromecast devices and Android TV 's when you have a google assistant device in your home. "Hey Google show me the frontdoor camera on chromecast living room"  works.

 

But not everybody has google assistant devices all over their home...

On the webinterface they still only offer to view the camera feeds through old dated and dangerous flash plugins..

Why , oh why is the Arlo team not adding the cast button on each camera so that everybody could stream any camera from https://arlo.netgear.com/#/cameras to a chromecast?

The development effort is nt high and it would offer an alternative to the blocked flash plugin.

 

I called support and they told me that there were no other requests from other users, in other words nobody asked to have chromecast support and therfore they have decided not to implement it yet...(no demand)

 

So if you would like chromecast support let hear your voice here and on their support contacts
