About this app

Cast online videos from your Android device to Roku! This app is intended to help cast videos embedded in websites that don't have a Roku channel.

Install the R-Cast channel and R-Cast app in your Roku and Android devices respectively. Once you connect the devices to the same Wi-Fi network, this app will detect your Roku devices.

Browse the web for videos in the Android app and cast them to the Roku channel. It's that easy!

Please note that not all videos can be cast including HTTPS, Flash videos, live streams. If you see R-Cast channel load the video and return to the home screen it is usually because of incompatible video format. Roku doesn't play all video formats that play in Android devices.

Videos in the web that are not in high definition, might not look the same on your HD TV as they look in a small screen. If the video website already has a Roku channel, please use its channel.

YouTube videos will not cast in Android 4.4 and newer devices, please use the YouTube app.

Quick Start:
* Install R-Cast channel in your Roku device: https://my.roku.com/add/rcast
* Install R-Cast app in your Android device
* Connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Roku device
* The app will detect Roku devices in your network
* Browse the web for your favorite entertainment
* In Android 4.3 or earlier, play videos in full view for the cast menu
* In Android 4.4 or later, just start videos to launch the cast menu
* Select the Roku device to cast and voila!
* Enjoy videos on the big screen!!

Upgrade to the RADICAL edition to watch videos longer than 10 minutes and resume previous video casts. The upgrade removes the ads at the bottom of the browser. It doesn't remove the ads hosted by the websites you visit.

Please make sure the websites you frequent play in R-Cast channel before upgrading to the RADICAL Edition. R-Cast channel only works with the R-Cast app.

VERY disappointed! As soon as I installed the free version, it wanted me to update and pay for the professional. I did that, and then my phone started crashing and come to find out there was malware and viruses attach this. It did not work at all and I'm very disappointed by the fact that I paid $2.49 for this. I guess there is no refund. it also kept prompting me to purchase the Roku remote, which I already have on my phone. Do NOT install this app!

Thanks for stealing my money!! Once I figured out this horrible layout of an app it worked perfectly for a few months. Now, not so much. It will no longer cast off any site I go to. It's still connected but will cast random videos that's not even on the site I'm looking at. I've re- downloaded everything and re connected everything and still nothing.

Paid for and only played video audio for only 4 seconds then it would shutdown! App was uninstalled after refund was requested and returned. Restarted both roku, and phone for best possible chance of workable application use. I'm certainly a techie, and am quite capable of quick easy setups, with most capable of most configurations without issue. i changed my original review because i know Rcast attempted to create a usable app. Respectfully, my initial review and comment was inappropriate.
