When it works, I love it! Unfortunately, 3 out of 4 times it can't find my central file server on my home LAN. I don't know why, ES File Explorer and other apps have no trouble connecting to it. Also unfortunately, the app doesn't allow manual entry of the IP address to connect with, so I can't even try to troubleshoot further. I'd happily change this rating to a 5, if the MegaCast team has a solution to this that I am missing.
The ad loaded but the movie won't. I gout this to play Kodi movies and tv shows. It will play my personal videos taken with my phone but not the steaming ones. Just have an add for mega cast premium. Doubt I'll go premium if the other doesn't work
App has worked great for a long time. I have the paid version and now it continually closes before it has even opened good. Started after the latest upgrade. This needs to be fixed ASAP and I will change my rating and write a new review. I've submitted my log files numerous times.
It's great if you like obtrusive ads in an app that doesn't work well. If that sounds good, enjoy! I will be happy to eat my words and change my review if the update helps.
I've found the app to be very hit-and-miss. I tried 12 different video files and it was only able to play 5 of them. It happens with mkv and mp4 files. I can play files fine in Localcast and VLC. I also notice the replies to posts here are very repetitive. I won't be upgrading to premium.
Got it for Chromecast audio transcoding but it doesn't seem to work. Also asks for login credentials for EACH folder on my SMB enabled NAS separately which is a joke.
