This is an excellent app for streaming video to your chromecast. I bought the Avia app several years ago, but it no longer seems to be actively developed and is lagging in features. In particular, with localcast, I like the 30 sec skip and the ability to play videos directly from local windows shares (smb://). Well done!
Problems Good app when it is working. Constant crashes spoil the enjoyment. Paid for upgrade because there were far too many adverts, but still get lots of crashes and not very easy to start up again afterwards. To sum up this app needs lots of work done to improve it
Poor for video For most formats it either fails to find a codec, of does not display the video. System can play the same formats, so this is clearly a fault of the app. Perhaps a 'open with' option should be offered.
Nice Design, Not Ready For HD or 4K Well designed application but it does not work very well with 720p+. When casting a locally hosted 1080p video, it was janky and slow.
Works great ! Really glad that this app is out. ..went on YouTube to figure out how to stream Google Chromecast using other apps A lot of them had complications. This by far is the best
Only used it couple times I've only used it a few times, but it asked me to rate it anyways. Kind of like that annoying server that comes to ask you how your food is after you've only had the first bite and it's still in your mouth. I think it's awesome I guess... does the job.
