Rickrolling your neighbors with Google Chromecast

The Google Chromecast is a handy, user friendly, little gadget that allows users to play video to HDTVs from a variety of sources, wirelessly. What could possibly go wrong? There’s been some research into modifying the software that runs the Chromecast, but what I really want is to Rickroll my neighbors.

This presentation will demonstrate how to hijack a Google Chromecast on any network to play videos of your choosing. Let no TV be safe.
