Playing Linux Desktop Audio on Chromecast.

I was using Chrome Browser to play Audio & Video from my Linux Desktop to Chromecast through Chrome applications.

I learnt about mkchromecast and installed it on Debian Testing which is my alternative to Ubuntu 16.04.

After installing the .deb package I had to install the dependencies through apt-get install -f install command.

I opened VLC and started playing my favourite music.

I had to run mkchromecast through terminal and it got connected to Chromecast and asked me to open pavucontrol and change the sink to mkchromecast.
