Clappr Chromecast Plugin

A Clappr plugin that adds Chromecast support on Chrome browser. As with all apps running on Chromecast it requires the Google Cast extension installed on the browser.

Please notice it's still not production ready, as it lacks a way to select tracks (audio, subtitles), as well as display media information.
