1. chrome://flags/
2. Default -> Disabled
Media Router Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
Enables Chrome to access external presentation-type displays and use them for presenting web content. #media-router
3. Casting will now work so long as you have the official extension installed

The built-in casting seems to block google's extension.  Only solution so far is to disable the new built-in casting.  As far as I know, the built-in streaming will never work with Chromium.  Linux users are now forced to Chrome or Chromium+disabled built-in casting+extension.
