Does anyone know if you can cast the video pass to the chromecast? For example: If I purchase the Motogp video pass and watch it on my phone or tablet, can I cast the feed to my chromcast? Do I need to watch it on a computer in order to cast?

The reason I keep mentioning casting is because I'm looking for a non-wired option.

Watch it on Chrome on Computer and cast the tab into Chromecast.

I tested it last night and it works great.
Yep, been doing it just like that since the Chromecast came out.

Thanks for the response. I'm glad to hear that it works well with a computer. Seeing that I have dinosaur computers in my house, I'm not sure I'll be able to do this. My Galaxy Note 4 has way better hardware specs than my desktop and laptop. Given that I have cast tabs from my laptop to my chromecast, I know at least that is possible. I've never tried casting a tab playing video. I'm not tech savy enough to know if my laptop is encoding video to the chormecast or if its a simple hand off. This is where I'm unsure of MY ability to cast. I'll test that tonight.

But, now my next question is, can I watch the race on my phone or tablet and then send it to my chromecast? I would like to have this option since its my fault that my computer and laptop tech is over 9 years old.

You can cast your phone/ tablet screen to chromecast
Open Chrome cast App on your device
Tap on the Burger icon on the top left corner
Choose cast screen

Then play the video on your tablet/phone using the videopass app

I tested it last night and it works well but you have a black bar on the right hand side there the Back, Home, Menu buttons are on the phone.

Thank you. This worked great. The app can be a little difficult sometimes, but I was able to watch the race live. Joy!
