So lucky! So lucky to find this amazing app! Just got a Chromecast but I have no internet where I live for now! Without Localcast I wouldn't be able to enjoy my smartphone's movies and music! Tried a few similar casting apps but I only found Localcast to work without much fuss to set up! With my Huawei P9 lite most things play smoothly. Sometimes when I put my phone to sleep Localcast will freeze so I usually leave it on...
King of casting! Nothing better for sending video to your chromecast. The new KODI support feature is so awesome and automatic. I watch alot of movies late night and i need subtitles so im not keeping the house up, it is a breeze to get your subtitles for any movie. I happily pay $1/mo subscription to use without ads but more importantly to fund further updates and development. Keep up the great work on this app!
Not very compatible... First video I played was an MP4, and the app said I have to re-encode the video using s different codec (not specified) using handbrake... Thanks for the info, but I'd prefer if the app were just more compatible.
Problems on Samsung phone and tablet Using a thumb drive plugged into my Asus router I get "failure retrieving items" error when browsing on Samsung tablet and S7 phone. No errors doing the same thing using my HTC 10. Any ideas?
Transcoding Issues Lots of videos do not play. The app suggests handbrake to convert, reality is that they need to be able to handle multiple types of video / audio if they want to compete further with other casting apps.
Great app Does what it is designed to do and does it well. To all of you giving 1 star reviews because you don't like the ads, shame on you! For the price of a cup of coffee you can go pro and never see another ad.
Kodi setting added. Easily write & delete the playercorefactory.xml
