In your opinion, will Chromecast 3 be able to cast Stadia someday?

I own 4 Chromecasts, and honestly I don't want to buy another one just to play Stadia. What are your thoughts?

It can’t be done. It doesn’t support VP9 profile 2 decoding.

It does however support h264, which Stadia supports as well.

Do you know that that can't be remedied? Either by supporting other codes or some other trickery?

Well, it’s all about the balance between trying to sell hardware and making Stadia easily accessible to as many people as possible, convincing more players to adopt it. I think the latter would be the natural priority for Google right now.

I assumed they will eventually allow the free version (1080p resolution) on Chromecast 3 but if you want pro (4k resolution) you will need a CCU.

Definitely not definitely. We know their intentions, but we don't know if the hardware has what it takes. Except that it doesn't support the codec used by Stadia.
So unknown at this point.

When I said "cast" I meant just use Stadia. I don't want to use 4K for Stadia or having a subscription at the Moment.
