About LocalCast - for Plex, DLNA, Chromecast and more
Cast/Stream videos, music or pictures
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.
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.
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.
If you cast from your device or DLNA, the album cover will be displayed on the TV. Playlists will be added soon.
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.
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.

I am just one independent developer working on my apps whenever I can, without a big budget for testing on various devices. If you find a bug please contact me via Facebook, Google+ or email and I'll try to fix it ASAP. Thanks for your support and happy casting!
