About this app

Cast Controller brings every video on the web from your Android phone or tablet into your living room. Browse the page where your video is located at and play it instantly on your Chromecast or Amazon FireTV.

Watching videos from the Web has never been easier before:
* Connect your phone or tablet to the same WiFi-Network your FireTV or Cast-Device is connected to
* Choose the device you want to play on from the Toolbar in the top right corner
* Visit the page where your video is located at. You can simply type in an URL or a search term into the input field
* Tap the video to start it in the browser and get it recognized. If a video was found, the Action Button turns orange
* Tap the Action Button in the bottom right corner to start playing the video on your TV!
* Control the playback on your TV directly from the app

Still unsure? Check this tutorial by Gadgethacks:

* Watch almost every video on the web on your TV via Amazon FireTV or a Google Cast-enabled device, without the need of any additional companion- or receiver-app
* Unlike similar apps, Cast Controller gets the video directly from your browser after the site has been loaded completely and therefore handles a huge variety of video players and -sites
* Works seamlessly with sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitch, Vimeo and Clipfish, as well as almost every video your phone's browser would play, too
* Control video playback directly from your phone
* Chromium Browser with Favorites management and built-in Search Engine and Autocomplete
* NEW: Use your favourite browser instead! Cast Controller now opens links from any other app having a Share-function
* Advanced Browser features like Desktop mode, Browsing history and disabling Javascript or Cookies (PRO version only)
* Safety first! The built-in, lightweight AdBlocker and Tracking Protection prevent ads from annoying you and malicious sites redirecting you (PRO version only)
* Play your last-seen videos directly, without having to re-visit the page (PRO version only)
* Completely Ad-Free (PRO version only)

Please consider testing the free version first before upgrading to PRO to make sure Cast Controller suits all your needs!

Supported Videos and Sites:
Cast Controller supports Facebook, Vimeo, Instagram, Twitch,, Clipfish, and basically every site using standard HTML5 video players or an actual version of JW Player.
Some sites actively refuse third parties to access their videos, e.g. YouTube or Dailymotion. Similarly, videos from sites using highly customized players - such as Hulu, Netflix or Amazon Video - cannot be played either. In most of those cases, you can make use of the respective official apps.
Flash videos are not supported either, as neither Cast nor FireTV are able to play them.

Simply put, Cast Controller handles every video that would play on your phone's browser, as well - with a few minor exceptions.

The Desktop mode is limited to sites that are actually using seperate Desktop/Mobile versions. So-called "responsive" sites (such as this one right here) adapt solely on the basis of your device's screen size and can therefore not be changed.
Additionally, in case you experience any issues while using the advanced browser features, try to disable Desktop mode and enable Javascript for best results.

The app is currently filled with ads which do not have a close button. Usually the ads within these sort of apps have a skip or a close button which triggers after a set time like 5-10 seconds. In this app, the time never counts. It's always stuck or 5-10 seconds or the video ad says you can skip this video in 1 seconds, right from the starts and never changes. These ads never let me play what I wanted though. A terrible experience and I ended up using a different app.

Any time I start a video an ad pops up that is then not removable even if I watch it till the end. This means video controls are also not accessible. Unfortunately like this the app is useless. Otherwise it looks like a great solution for casting

This is nearly exactly what I was looking for. I actually wanted a plugin for the Chrome browser but this is a fine alternative. I use this to stream videos from multiple websites to my FireTV devices. It works without any additional software. It just shoot the video over (Not low quality laggy screen mirroring). Note that I did upgrade to the pro version because some sites require desktop mode to work properly. I do have one major issue. Sometimes the app is not able to see my FireTV. The only workaround I've found is to restart the FireTV and then it picks up just fine. If not for that it would be 5 stars. Also I would love to have this app for PC. If there is a product I'm not aware of. Please let me know. I'm not interested in emulation. I want an actual PC app or plugin.
