    Chromecast must also support casting subtitles together with video.

    This can sort of work now using the following videojs (which AMP seems to be based on) plug-in:

    However, I can't get it to work with DRM content (i.e. Widevine).

    I would like to see casting support built into AMP. Particularly Chromecast, but Xbox One, Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku. ConnectSDK (by LG) provides a JavaScript Bridge that could possibly be leveraged by AMP.
