What Are the System Requirements for a Chromecast
The Chromecast relies on your computer or other device to perform the 'heavy lifting' of decoding a movie to display on a screen. The Chromecast itself provides an easy-to-use 'remote screen service', so you can show movies on a television of your choosing.
Because of this, there does need to be a bit of power in the computer doing the casting. Most modern computers have no problem, but some older models can end up displaying lower resolutions, or stutter, when casting to a Chromecast.
