Better Chromecast Layout.

Description

I recently got a chromecast to replace my Kodi with. But since I couldn't find a way to share my music to my phone to then play to cast the streaming music or downloaded music to the Chromecast I had to setup a headless Kodi... Either way, when I tested out the Chromecast feature for Yatse it looked awfull and is still using the old icon!

I took a few hours of my day to come up with a design for a new Chromecast layout and I REALLY hope you like it and on top of that able to make it.
I tried making it as materalistic as possible and I hope I didn't fail completely, you will probably do a better job at it if it's production friendly and possible.

I have to thank my brother as well for helping me with small parts like colour and using the right tools for the job, and thank my brain for coming up with it... Mostly after watching SoundClouds layout which is a bit similar.

I'm making it a low priority since the casting feature already works like it should, a bit slow but it works. It plays my music just like I want it to, nothing wrong with it. But there's still room for improvement (imo..).

Changed around with the fonts and made the text fonts Roboto. Looks way better!

Chromecast app is a little complicated to update as not really my specialty :)

In all cases I'd need psd layouts to have all information about this design.

And clearly no promise I'll be able to find time for that :) Even if the old icons really bothers me :p

Here you go!

Maximised compatability is enabled so if you were to use gimp it should still work.

I categorised all the layers in folders as well so it's easy to navigate!

I didn't save the psd with the latest font updates, not that it matters too much but for the sake of... It not mattering TOO much I'll upload it anyways!
