    In the last few days I've noticed that I can no longer stream something to the Chromecast in full screen mode and than alt+tab out of it in order to continue browsing the internet in another tab. Now when I hit alt+tab the video quickly exits full screen mode in the same manner as if I had just hit escape. Is this happening to anyone else? Is there a fix for it?

    The issue stems from the update to chromes baked in flash. The workaround i found is an extension in the chromestore called Fullscreen anything that makes video ect full screen in the tab. When you then cast the tab it shows up full screen. Hope this helps.
