VLC, the Swiss Army knife of media players, has been updated to version 3.0.0. The latest version adds some much-needed features to the player, including one that could make streaming all that content from your computer to your living room TV a lot easier: Chromecast support (among other things).


If you've been hitting VLC's nightly builds, then most of the new features of v3.0.0 will be old news. For everyone else, the major update -- the first since 2.0.0 came out in 2012 -- adds loads of goodness, including native Chromecast support, hardware HEVC decoding and advanced network browsing. While VLC's website hasn't been updated, there's no need to wait: you can grab the official release right now.

If you've been waiting for a cheaper price on Google's Chromecast 2, well, you now have the pick of the electronic litter. Harvey Norman currently has the device for $47, down from its retail price of $59, though it's certainly not the only store offering a discount.


Netflix and chill is all well and good, but there are still loads of people who have never tried streaming video. Fortunately, it’s very easy to get started. Better yet, for many people it can be totally free to try.


Google's latest version of the Chromecast media streaming device is finally available in Australia. Hurrah! From today, you can pick it up from a range of Aussie retailers, including Jb Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman for $59.
