|Re: [PLUG] non-internet accessible media streaming|
I heard Chromecasts don’t work well with no internet connection.

I run mediatomb against a raid 5 media volume but I have also run in on my Beagle Bone Black with an sshfs mount to remote disk. That serves my TVs with DLNA Bluray players or Chromecasts using an android device with BubbleUPnP. It also serves my computers running Kodim(which can also serve content).
I would definitely put wifi up and then use either an hmdi dongle or small ARM system running linux (or android).
The units I was considering...
...still might be deployed if Google doesn't allow better format support on the Chromecast.
These are expensive relatively speaking but at least you know what you are getting.
An Odroid C1+ is cheaper (http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G143703355573) and would get the job done but I like the CuBox form factor. The Odroid could certainly run the server.
