So much for streaming your own content with third-party apps.

Google has reportedly launched an update to its Chromecast media streamer that signals the company’s intention to heavily police what users can do with the device. As it stands now, Chromecast users can no longer stream local content to their HDTVs from a third-party app, a move believed to be no accidental side effect from the recent firmware update.

Excerpts from the article: A year after Mr. Snowden’s revelations, the era of quiet cooperation is over. Telecommunications companies say they are denying requests to volunteer data not covered by existing law.

This became a central issue of the US Department of Justice antitrust case brought against Microsoft in 1998.
