I am a big fan of Google’s Chromecast media key as it allows you to play Netflix, Plex, BBC iPlayer and Youtube on TV’s around my house (I own 2 Chromecasts). I am also a huge fan of the Pluralsight training library, so much of a fan that I applied, auditioned and successfully became a Pluralsight author.
Not so long ago, Pluralsight updated their IPad and IPhone app to support playing their content to a Chromecast device but the Android app did not get updated. I don’t know when or if the Android App will get updated, but there is an alternative that works very well, so you can indeed play Pluralsight courses on a decent TV.
In a recent update to the Chromecast software on android devices, you now have the ability to cast your tablet/phone screen to your TV. This is demonstrated above where I have cast my Google Nexus 7 screen to my living room TV.
Once you have enabled this you just load up the Pluralsight Android App as usual and play your video. The video will be streamed perfectly with audio to your TV. I have watched a number of course modules this way now and it works perfectly fine.
This is a very good and reliable compromise. I am not sure what Pluralsights plans are for updating the Android App with native Chromecast support, but in the mean time, I recommend doing this instead.
