Playing an embedded YouTube video on a Chromecast

You no longer have to jump through hoops to stream embedded YouTube videos through your Chromecast. Google has quietly rolled out support for sending most web clips to its media stick, regardless of the site they're on; you just need to choose the device as your playback target. About the only clips that won't work on the Chromecast are live streams, private footage and desktop-only videos. If you're looking for an excuse to test the new feature, you can check out a highly relevant sample video below.
