Casting to Kodi (Built-in)
Is it possible to natively implement casting to Kodi (e.g cast from youtube to kodi etc) in future versions of Kodi (so that casting is built-in Kodi)?

The feature is quite useful and would save people from needing to buy a chromecast or have a smart TV
and also needing to switch to that device's video input when they want to cast something..
It is already available with sendtokodi addon and kore remote app

I don't think that is natively casting built in feature though?

That is more like share url to kodi function.
You can't scrub the time line in the video on your phone (which would then change to that time line on the kodi video) or quickly change a video which then immediately cast the new video..
Need to change to a video, then click share button, select share to kore again etc..
If you were able to cast, you can do all these things immediately.

If you are running kodi, and click the cast button (e.g. on youtube app) it doesn't show your kodi device

There are many media players that support cast to kodi natively / built in..
-nvidia shield, google tv, apple tv..

Many people nowadays watch alot of youtube and being able to quickly cast to their TV etc. would be really good

So basically the cast to kodi feature (built-in) would be a much more better feature than share URL.
The tubecast add-on provides casting for YouTube, it implements an old revision of the cast protocol. Unfortunately castv2 is locked to Google authorized devices.
