MP3 Playlist for Chromecast

Come to find out, I am a very retro guy when it comes to music. I have these old things that I like to use to play music, you may not have heard of them, they are called MP3s. They are kind of like 8-track tapes, but digital, not in the cloud, and not old enough to be cool yet.

How do you play MP3s via Chromecast?

The official answer is to use Google Play, but that implies that you want to both pay for that service and upload your files to the cloud. The unofficial answer is to drag and drop your MP3s into a Chrome tab and cast that tab, however this does not allow you to create a playlist.

Introducing Playlist for Chromecast

I have created a simple single page HTML 5 application that will act as a playlist for MP3s on your computer. Just download the project and open up release/playlist.html in Chrome, then drag and drop MP3s on to the page.

Development

I had a lot of fun making this, and I'm not done. I intend to use this project as a case study to talk about VSCode, TypeScript, SASS, HTML5 Audio, NPM, and unit testing. For now, I just wanted to start by getting this initial post up, but expect more to follow.

What's next?

  • Update project documentation.
  • Create unit tests.
  • Add theme support.
  • Write blog posts about development.
  • Maybe host it on a domain.
  • Maybe submit it as a Chrome application.

Enjoy,
Tom

  20. Easy listening music or relaxing classics improves the duration and intensity of concentration in all age groups and ability levels. It's not clear what type of music is better, Spotify Promotion Campaign or what kind of musical structure is necessary to help, but many studies have shown significant effects.
