The Best for Online Videos I don't know about ads cause I block them all through hosts, but as far as watching online videos and live streaming, this is the best.. Combine this with Chrome browser and watch everything from UFC to Yify movies on Chromecast.. just ridiculous . ( XENONHD Note 4 lollipop )
Works great! I downloaded 3 different casting apps to try and watch a movie from my phone online. One app would play for 5 minutes then an ad would pop up and freeze the movie. The other would play it but I couldn't control the content and it would ask for money 20 minutes in. The last just wouldn't work at all. Finally I tried this and HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY! It plays in the background on my phone allowing me to watch the movie and take phone calls.
Works great with HomeNet Wifi Media Server files I tested several Android Chromecast apps to play my Media Server files that reside on a 2TB USB drive attached to my Windows 7 notebook. The best combination was to use the "Next Browser" in combination with this Vega Cast app. Next Browser offloads all media playback to an external app. I tried other apps - Bubble UPnP, Localcast, Web Video Caster, etc. but Vega Cast "just works" without any extra setup or added complexity. Most of my video collection contains MP4 and MKV files. Vega Cast works great with these. I do, however, have a few (Google) WebM video files. Vega Cast does not yet work with WebM but I was told that video format will likely be included in the future. .
I just recently downloaded this because megacast stopped working for me. This app works great streming wise bt the sound quality sucks. Audio needs improvement! Have to have my tv turned ALL the way up in order to hear any of the movies I watch. Update needed
Good I often start this up first before selecting videos to play to make sure chromecast is connected. The lock screen controls usually don't work. I think you need to be able to automatically remove playlists once they have been stopped
Sad Tries to cast any video you select i.e. when you try to watch a video on your phone you are unable to because Vega cast will try to cast the video and will "fail to load stream"... cannot be stopped through permissions as it was created for an older version of Android. Guess only option is to uninstall it. Force stopping it does not allow you to play the videos.
+ New application name - VEGA Cast
+ compatibility fixes for Samsung phones
