VHX, the online distribution platform that allows creators to sell their work directly to viewers, has integrated with Chromecast. Those with Chromecast can now stream VHX videos directly to their home TV screens.
Previously, anyone purchasing videos from the VHX platform had to download the files to their computers before using thumb drives to move them to Apple TV, smart TVs, or Xbox.
With Chromecast, the process is more direct. It allows viewers to take computers out of the equation, letting them instead stream VHX videos directly to the their televisions. Information for setup is available on the VHX website.
Since the new feature’s launch, the most popular Chromecasted videos include “This American Life @ BAM,” “Chug,” “Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters,” and “Minecraft.”
VHX went public to creators this past March. It supports “anything that used to be sold on DVD,” according to the company’s blog post announcing the launch, and works for creators of all genres and scale. The distribution platform first gained some recognition when comedian Aziz Ansari distributed his own “Dangerously Delicious” comedy special online through VHX a couple years back.
