I used to really love this app. Unfortunately, it will no longer detect my DLNA server (UMS) running on Windows 10. Archos Video, LocalCast, BubbleUPNP, etc all detect this serve. AllCast will not play nice with it. This is not really addressed in the wiki other than to say to restart the DLNA server and Android device. That doesn't help me, because I can open any of those other apps and play movies from said server just dandy. Logs only show that CastDLNA is searching for a few minutes, then stopping and restarting. Nothing else useful that I've seen yet
Tried this again after quite some time. This time i am in Spain instead of the UK as i moved here for a year. Still not great unfortunately. All starts to work fine but then after a few minutes the buffering starts and then the stream stops. Tried streams from my own server in the uk, kodi streams, streaming locally from videos stored on sd card on my tablet. Hate to say it but have no problems with localcast. This is streaming direct to lg tv with built in dnla and also an android box with dnla and xbox one.
Ads are just annoying. You can't just stream it to chromecast and use other apps. Ads will keep flooding on top of other apps to irritate you till your death. Other casting apps has way more features too. UI and feature wise sucks as well. Total bummer
Works quite well but... I don't know if this is a trial version for a limited time, or limited functionality. It appears to play only one photo at a time. I see nothing that allows file selection, a slideshow, or swiping to another photo as shown in the video on the website. Support indicates that any issues are not fixed by the premium version, so I guess I am out of luck. The file navigation is excellent. It does not appear to be a full DLNA server, but there are some limited commands available on the TV using the remote.
Preview Complete. Preview complete, that is what my screen read in the middle of streaming a video. The footage cuts off and it reads preview complete. No only that, but I get a bunch of pop ups and ads. I will never endorse such a crappy app as this one. If I can't even watch one video without it being put off and asked for money, if I can't even look at the app without pop ups and ads thrown in my face, then that app does not deserve a place on my phone or on any. Do not download this app. Preview Complete, that just makes me so angry. I've had this app in the past and never did that happen before. It just gets worse and worse with each new update.
Works decently enough through a Xbox one, but drops multiple times during a movie (which plays well on originating vehicle). Have to restart and move the movie to the place it stopped. Other than that, excellent picture, smooth connection. I downloaded this based on recommendation, going to try others now.
