AllCast now streams your media to any Android device

Koushik Dutta's AllCast app can stream media to seemingly any set-top box you might own, but it hasn't let you stream to (most) Android devices. Today, though, that barrier has come down: Dutta has released AllCast Receiver, an app that turns any supporting Android gadget into a streaming target. You can now send video to a tablet for more comfortable viewing, for example, or mirror your screen to walk someone through an unfamiliar app. To top it off, AllCast itself has received an update that will stream Google Play Music to other hardware, provided you get root OS access on the host device first. Whether or not you're willing to take that risk, you'll definitely want to grab the newer apps if AllCast is your go-to content sharing tool.
