Description

Cast webvideos, local videos, music or pictures to a Chromecast, Apple TV or Smart TV.

FROM your iPhone, iPad or iPod or NAS, DLNA/UPnP, Google Drive, Dropbox or a webpage

TO AppleTV 4th Gen, Chromecast, Nexus Player, Amazon Fire TV, SmartTV, Sonos, Xbox 360, Xbox One or other DLNA devices.

// Web

Browse webpages in the app. If a streamable video is found on the page you can send it to your TV.

// Pro Version

The app is free and fully functional. In order to keep the app free there are advertisements on the bottom of the screen and sometimes a fullscreen ad will pop up. You can disable both type of ads, by purchasing the Pro Version via the in-app purchase.

// Videos

Please be aware that the Chromecast only supports a couple of formats. Videos stored on your iPhone, iPad or iPod will be transcoded automatically. For videos on other sources:
The Chromecast can read containers like mp4, mkv, 3gp and m4v, but all these containers can use different codecs. If you can't hear the audio of a video, then the audio codec is not supported. If you can't see the video but hear the audio, then the video codec is not supported.


// Music

If you cast from your device or DLNA, the album cover will be displayed on the TV. Playlists will be added soon.


// Pictures

On a Chromecast, Nexus Player or other Cast device:
You can rotate, zoom and pan pictures easily from the "Now playing" screen, just touch the button with the four arrows.


// Subtitles

If you use a Chromecast, Nexus Player or other Cast device:
Subtitles from DLNA servers will be added automatically. You can use the integrated Opensubtitles.org search to add a subtitle manually.
Internal subtitles which are inside the video container don't work.

Nope, still won't connect after latest update!!

LPC1

Under the tab "DNLA/Upnp" your app used to connect fine to my "WDMyCloud" drive it used to work great until you redesigned the look awhile back and broke something. Now under "DNLA/Upnp" it still sees my WDMyCloud drive and it shows icons of content including all the photos, videos & music on my drive. BUT it will NOT play anything anymore. When a video or music or photo there is clicked now it says "NOT connected, touch the amber button in the lower right to connect." So then I do that and it just forever reads "Scanning network for devices...". It stays stuck there forever & thus is not working now. It used to work fine & was great until the latest recent updates, (thank goodness your Apple TV app still works). The new iPhone app design looks very nice but since it broke the app from playing anything that it still sees and shows on my drive but will not play any of it then what's the point of having it if it shows the contents but won't play any of it anymore now. (Maybe go back to the simpler design at least it worked then.) Please fix ASAP and then I will reconsider the review, thanks.

Developer Response

To which device do you want to connect?

Local Cast won’t run in iOS 11

Seperry

I installed iOS 11 on 2 devices: an iPhone 6sPlus and and iPad mini 2, and Local Cast crashes on both devices after about 3 seconds during the app’s startup. I tried deleting and then downloading fresh copies on both devices as well as shutting down each device and restarting. No luck.

FYI, 5 stars because I loved the app when it worked. Hopefully a fix is in the works.

Not playing mp3 (edited)

Aquilla Network

I’m trying to play music on my home mini but when I try to get mp3 from Dropbox it says it’s not supported. I went to the link in the desc and mp3 is supported

EDIT: Uploaded mp3 to google drive and everything works. Very good quality, but still pulling off a star for the fact I had to transfer to drive. 😐
