The app wouldn't play Facebook videos, they were the wrong format. So I visited a different website. Twice I tried to open a link and an ad started. Even though I completely restarted the app before trying a second time I still couldn't get past the ad. There was no way to close it, no way to move past it. I finally tried a third website. I was able to start the video on the browser and it looked like it had connected, however the app on the TV just shut down. Twice. I gave up at that point.

Using a Samsung Galaxy 8+ and a Roku TV: Videos stay in buffering state and don't ever play. When viewing pictures, the 1st picture populates just fine, and every picture thereafter will not. The initially viewed picture just stays on the screen it's being casted to, and flickers as if ready to change, yet doesn't. Waste of time and money if you bother to go far as to try the premium version in the hopes that it'll work better than the free one.

Every once in awhile it will stop & show loading, when it does this, go back to the phone app & watch the ad it ahows. The movie will come back on. If it gets worse, clear your cache, and worse case scenario, delete the app & download again. When you figure out the little hiccups, this app is AWESOME!!!
