Watch any web video on your Chromecast device or Smart TV powered television and enjoy the show on your big screen.
With Video & TV Cast you can browse through the web and stream any online video on your Chromecast (movies, tv shows, sports, music and more). Just navigate to your favorite website and send the embedded video with a single tap to your Chromecast. The discovered video will be shown below the browser. A tap on the video link will send it to your Chromecast immediately.
* The app only works with a Chromecast device by Google and on devices powered by Smart TV.
* iTunes movies, Flash video and other DRM protected videos like HBO now are not supported!
* The app streams only the video part of a website and not the whole website content (No screen or tab mirroring!).

Ratings and Reviews
Awesome casting app so far. Works flawless and delay is negligible unlike other apps. Never failed since I started using this app a month ago. Other apps just quit from time to time. Finds all the TVs quickly on my network. For some reason I don’t like using the Apple TV, and love chromecast inbuilt to my TVs so this app is a great deal for me. Only one feature I would request from the devs for having the ability to rewind forward on all pages instead of being available on just the current playing video page on the browser, so we can surf for more while watching the video. One more thing, the browser is great too. I never felt I wasn’t on Safari. Good job! This is my first review ever for any app. Also please make one for OSX. Thanks.
So far so good
I started streaming a few months ago because of the increasing fees for cable. I live in a condo, and can’t have a dish. I started with ROKU and use Tablo to record local content. You Tube TV was brought to my area and I like it the best so far for streaming internet stations. I have had some issues with it locking up, but in those cases, the program is always fine. I just loose my ability to pause or fast forward from my iphone7. I have had to reboot my phone, and sometimes I disconnect the TV and reconnect. I had Direct TV now, and it was always buffering. No issues ever with chromecast & You Tube TV in that regard. I still use ROKU to stream my other channels like Netflix. I just purchased a second chromecast for another tv in the house. I if did not lose control at times, it would be 5 stars.
Used to work great
Loved this app when I first downloaded it. Although it requires a bit more steps to connect to the TV through chromecast, clicking the browser button to get to the browser page, and clicking around a couple sources to cast the videos, I enjoyed having the ability to pause, play, skip through, and change the volume of the videos through the app. The camera casting ability is also quite fun.
However, it stopped working for me. Nothing would cast. After I click a video, it would look like it’s loading on my TV for 2 seconds, then it would go back to the pending screen with the casting icon in the middle of the TV. Tried reinstalling the app, did not work. Tried using an iPhone and an iPad, did not work. (Also tried casting the same link on other apps and it worked for them)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
