Chromecast Hacking Has Begun

chromecast
Initial chromecast testing has revealed that it is a DIAL device and sniffing shows several interesting commands that can be sent to it.

The chromecast dongle is apparently listening on http port 8008. (Also port 9080 while Netflix app is running)

Some control can be established by sending simple HTTP GET’s, POST’s and DELETE’s.

** For these examples the youtube app is running, also available are Netflix, ChromeCast, and GoogleMusic.

get device information xml:
curl http://10.0.1.2:8008/ssdp/device-desc.xml

get detailed device information json:
curl http://10.0.1.2:8008/setup/eureka_info?options=detail

scan for available wifi:
curl http://10.0.1.2:8008/setup/scan_results

get supported time zones:
curl http://10.0.1.2:8008/setup/supported_timezones

get info about current app:
curl -H “Content-Type: application/json” http://10.0.1.2:8008/apps/YouTube -X GET

send youtube video to chromecast:
curl -H “Content-Type: application/json” http://10.0.1.2:8008/apps/YouTube -X POST -d ‘v=oHg5SJYRHA0’

kill current running app:
curl -H “Content-Type: application/json” http://10.0.1.2:8008/apps/YouTube -X DELETE

reboot the chromecast dongle:
curl -H “Content-Type: application/json” http://10.0.1.2:8008/setup/reboot -d ‘{“params”:”now”}’ -X POST

factory default reset the chromecast dongle:
curl -H “Content-Type: application/json” http://10.0.1.2:8008/setup/reboot -d ‘{“params”:”fdr”}’ -X POST

Hopefully more to come… Focusing on the websocket connections now

I would like to be able to send commands (power, volume, source) to the tv through the hdmi-cec connection of the chromecast.
