The app detect my lg smart tv but not casting at my smart tv


So happy I found this, just one thing...

This app is amazing! I love that I can stream video from my laptop via an ad hoc network connection! Buffers fast, and fast forwarding buffers super quick too! The only thing that I really want added is the ability to auto load subtitles, it's a little annoying to always have to turn that on, but besides that this app is great for streaming my hd 720 anime in .mkv format to my iPad. Also please add a description of when the advanced features are, have no problem giving money to this great app, but I would like to know what the features are.


Only one that works with my NAS and plays all movie types

I've bought and tried many players on my iPad 2 and mini. This is the only player that works correctly (for me) using smb shares on my netgear readynas duo. This player allows me to download and take on the go all my favorite movies. A bonus is that it plays just about any video type. I travel a lot on long international flights that have no wifi and sub par entertainment so this app is perfect for me.
