If we built such a thing would they come? It's extremely frustrating 
that Apple, Google and Amazon all have different proprietary protocols 
to cast media from your phone or laptop to a tv or whatever. they all 
have interoperability problems because their petty business fueds, and 
for users it is a complete nightmare to try to figure out what is going 
wrong which happens way too often. Worst of all, is that since it's 
proprietary we have no clue what is happening under the hood and 
especially what is going on the security front. For example, if I were 
to cast at a public venue would I potentially be opening myself up to 
some sort of attack? Nobody but them knows and they aren't telling.
