The easiest way to enjoy your own photos & videos on your TV.
Photo Video Cast is the #1 chromecast application in its category, with powerful features presented in a straightforward, simple interface.
*** App Requires a Chromecast, or a Chromecast-enabled TV ***
A REALLY BIG DISPLAY changes everything!
• Share your photos and videos on your bug screen TV with family and friends.
• Create your own custom slideshows by picking individual photos or entire albums, add songs from your music library to make a soundtrack .
• Multiple iPhones/iPads can beam photos & videos to a single screen.
• Start a slideshow, and keep it running in the background.
• Cast from any application that supports photo sharing.
• 5 video resolutions available, up to 4K UHD with Chromecast Ultra!
• 4 photo framing modes to make the most of your large screen:
- Screen fit (resize photo to fit your TV frame)
- Full screen (centered)
- Full screen (pan)
- Full screen (centered on faces)
• Some great features for small businesses & events:
- Let the cloud take over: loop your slideshows uninterrupted without tying down your iPhone/iPad.
- Turn on multicast to cast slideshows to multiple TVs at the same time.
Note that the face detection feature works best when both eyes + mouth are visible, and does not currently work with cloud slideshows.
***** Compatibility *****
If your TV is compatible with chromecast, photo cast will work. In other words, all you need is an HDMI port on your TV.
The picture is optimized for your TV's resolution so you will be making the best of your TV. All resolutions are supported
***** Mobile HotSpot (MiFi) users *****
If your WiFi is powered by a Mobile HotSpot (MiFi), your MiFi device may need additional configuration to allow your chromecast dongle to request images from your iPhone/iPad on port 8081/8082 over HTTP. It may just work out of the box, but we recommend trying the following steps if it doesn't:
1. Port filtering should either be completely disabled, or if enabled, HTTP communication should be allowed on port 8081 & 8082
2. Privacy separation should be disabled
3. If all fails, enable port forwarding with these settings
- protocol: HTTP
- port range: 8081 to 8082
- destination ip: the ip address of the iOS device running photo cast
***** Important Notices *****
- Cloud-powered slideshows will automatically upload your photos to a private cloud.
- If you experience frequent buffering with videos, make sure that both your chromecast and your iPhone/iPad have a good wifi signal reception. Should all else fail, pick a lower resolution.
- If you are experiencing any issues, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't help you if we don't hear from you!
- Increased support for imported videos
- UX Improvements
- Bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Fantastic App.
Even though Chromecast already allows you to cast your photos to the TV, you can only do it from your Camera Roll.
This app takes it a step further by allowing you to access your individual Photo Folders, making the photo selection process incredibly more manageable.
In fact, you can create a new folder with the relevant photos for TV viewing at any time.
It also casts your videos as well. You cannot cast your Camera Roll Slide Shows, but you can creat Slide Shows within the app.
The free version of the app can suffice, but I decided to upgrade for a one time $2.99 charge.
You get rid of the watermark (which is not really that obtrusive) and higher quality picture.
Also I was so satisfied with the app I wanted to make a contribution for a job well done.
Chromecast is such a “hoot”. I love viewing my photographs on my tv screen. It’s such a great way to show off your work to friends and family. It shows only those pix which I take with my iPhone or those that I have downloaded from my DSLR to “Photos” on my computer. Unfortunately, I cannot Access my main photo library in Aperture. That is what I would really like to be able to do. But as it is, it’s just great and so much fun.
🍀Best photo app🍀
This is my favorite app on my iPhone. It plays music extremely clear! The photos look great on the big screen TV, and the way it's set up is better than any other photo app I've seen. Love showing the photos on my phone on the big screen with music to friends and family. You got to have this app❤️❤️❤️
