Getting Chromecast to work with Unotelly

Few months ago , I bought a Chromecast. It was a nice little device that allowed me to cast stuff from my mobile to my TV. I bought it for my Bedroom TV as I already have an Apple TV for the living room. The main reason why I bought it was to stream Twitch from my mobile phone to the TV. However I wanted Chromecast just to do more in Malaysia. For example with my Apple TV , I am able to watch hulu and netflix , thanks to unotelly. I just want to replicate the same steps , so I changed my DNS to Unotelly DNS in my router. This simple step should work , because all of my computers in the network would automatically use Unotelly DNS – except for Chromecast

Quick Summary 

 Ulasan Pendek 

The ASUS RT-N14UHP is one of a kind of router that is meant to replace your existing UniFi/Maxis Fibre Wireless Routers. I mean if you do a simple Google search , you’ll notice the amount of complain.

Also if you are interested to see how the router is in action. I have done a video review in Malay (yep it’s the first time – thanks to Aman Firdaus for giving the inspiration)
