I'm not sure what this would entail or if it would be feasible, but it would be great if you could incorporate a casting function into Swordsearcher similar to the functionality in Chrome or VLC or other programs that can cast their audio to a Chromecast enabled device (like a Google Home).
Thanks so much. I just upgraded to 9.0 today :)

I think this would be best done using existing tools. You could extend your display to a second monitor and cast that, then use SwordSearcher clone panels to show what you want on the extended display.

I wasn't meaning to cast the display. I was meaning to cast the sound to something like a google home or another casting enabled device. Similar to the rendering feature in vlc. I guess that could be used for displays in VLC too (I've never used it for that), but regular way like that addictive tips guide don't work for the google home and similar devices since it doesn't have a screen.

Spotify is another example of a software that has that. I'm sure there are a lot of others, just I don't use them :)
