gsr: Good news: I tried rerouting the address to unblock us using my dd wrt flashed router. Easy as pie, and works perfectly with netflix. Mission accomplished.



Can you share the config changes ? Cheers.

Does anyone have the Chromecast APK? I can't download to the tablet as it says "Not available for your country". And no, this tablet is not rooted (no problem to root if needed to).

My Chromecast arrived today, I've tried playing some 1080p videos and it's worked quite well where it's setup currently, still have to see how the WiFi signal is in my bedroom.

When I try to cast a tab running Netflix I get an error message that the page has unsupported content (Silverlight). I'll have to try casting from my Chromebook, which uses something other than Silverlight I believe. Casting directly doesn't work and I don't think I'll be able to change the DNS on my router permanently since those services don't allow access from multiple IPs at the same time.

Are you going to create something we can use MF?

Sorry I thought you said API.. lol. Reading on my phone and have to scroll left and right or else it's too small to read.

The standard Android browser reflows the text to fit screen. Chrome doesn't which is why I don't use it.

I used the following lines:

iptables -I PREROUTING -t nat -p udp -s <ip of chromecast> -d 8.8.8.8 --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination <unblock-us dns 1>
iptables -I PREROUTING -t nat -p udp -s <ip of chromecast> -d 8.8.4.4 --dport 53 -j DNAT --to-destination <unblock-us dns 2>


Source: xda developers website.
Note: of course, no <>, just the address.

P.S those who are using unblock us, an easy way of getting the apk is setting the dns on your computer, then go to the play store(on your computer browser) and install the app to your device.

Good tip. Should have tried via VPN to get the APK.

Now if only you could use iptables on the FRITZ!Box 7390.
