Pulseaudio sink in Linux

To use mkchromecast you need to get into the cloned mkchromecast directory and execute:

python mkchromecast.py

However, if you have installed the debian package, you just need to execute:

mkchromecast

This will cast to the first Google cast device in the list found, using parec and mp3. I suggest you to use a codec different from mp3 when launching with parec to avoid delay between the sound played and listened in the chromecast. For example:

python mkchromecast.py -c aac

or

mkchromecast -c aac

Then, you need to open pavucontrol and select the sink called mkchromecast as seen in the gif below:

Example of using mkchromecast

After that, you are good to go.
