The latest version of the RTE Player app works great with a chromecast.

A lot of channels don't allow it too
It's a pity because we've only got one tv box so it be handy to cast the vm app in one of the bedrooms.

Can you move chromecast from one tv to another or should I have one for each tv?

You can, it should remember the wifi settings etc so it'll just be a case of plugging/unplugging

It actually does have apps, a special chromecast version of them. With proper supported apps the chromecast device takes over and does all the work, it's not a mere screen casting job. Screen casting is the fallback option when there is no proper app, which was the case with RTE, but not anyone.

I did have trouble with windows firewall, had to go in and turn off some things.

But it's not like a NowTV or Fire stick which can function independently. You still need a phone to tell the Chromecast what to do.
