+1 I've been asking for this since Chromecast was born in 2013. With IMDB being such a popular app, with good developer support, I'm surprised casting trailers to Chromecast hasn't been baked in yet.

Almost every other trailer app has this. I really wish IMDB had it as well. Maybe even an auto play frature that will play the next trailer after some time has elapsed. That would encourage people to watch more trailers.

Gut feeling IS IMDB is just a puppet of Amazon to provide push through sales of Amazon Prime/Video, therefore in no way do they want to promote the Chromecast.

Just realised Amazon owns IMDb, so Chromecast support will never arrive https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMDb?wp...

That makes a lot of sense. I guess I'm going to find a different app for trailers. Amazon apparently had already tainted this service.

The omission of support for Chromecast is a real pity. If the influence of Amazon is the reason for this omission, It’d be pretty sad.

If amazon is the reason, I wouldn’t mind if there was a link to it after the trailer played that I could choose to press if I wanted to see the movie

What exactly do you refer to? The "Prime Video" app?
On iOS the app still does not Chromecast.
