I've lost my HDMI cord.

 

Thinking about getting a Chromecast but it is advertised to only work within the Chrome browser.

 

1. I don't like Chrome.

 

2. I want to cast some things that aren't in an Internet browser, like video games.

 

I was told by a friend that I may be able to find an app/extension or some other contraption that fits my needs.

 

Anybody heard of something like that?

Probably cheaper buying another HDMI cable - about £5/metre in the UK.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
