This is specifically for Chromecast I've tried a bunch of different Video/Audio players and none of them were close to this player in just working especially when working with external storage. It is also really fast, hands down the fastest compared to the free video players I tried, well worth the money

Works very well and intuitively for DLNA sharing. Wasn't able to get it to work at all with SMB, unfortunately (Windows 10 host), but the overall performance and features of the app are worth 5 stars anyway. Totally worth the $.

After years of frustration, I finally found an app that plays all my movies smoothly (including HEVC) with audio pass-through that's actually working on my Sony Bravia Android TV.
