Video & TV Cast | Chromecast Positive Reviews
The more updates the worseI’m going to cut to the chase, it’s a very convenient app to use. But it seems the farther they go along the more things you need to purchase. You used to be able to pause, play, rewind, and fast forward. Now that is a payed feature. I have bought the premium 4 times but it goes off of your apple ID and not your google account. I’m refusing to make any more in-app purchases until there is a better way to link payments across devices. There should either be a family plan or a linking across emails. Because when you have a family, which ever device has premium is now rendered disabled for any other use. Chrome Casting while using this app can cause lag or packet loss( packet loss is not necessarily lag it’s when the wifi is smooth but for some reason all the data is not getting received. ) So it should be linked through email and have the option to have a family plan just like google home..Version: 2.0
What’s going on here??!!/ purchased the upgrade package!!Suddenly there are banner ads across the screen when casting and they say they are not going away until we purchase something. This is a free app that I’ve used for years off and on and it’s really an awesome app but I can’t afford a purchase right now and so now we can’t watch our shows. This is labeled as free and needs to be relabeled because it doesn’t work without money
So I bought the upgrade pckg the next day, because UFC right!, long story short. I should have done this years ago. So basically I can do everything I can do with a blue ray disc only I’m streaming and buffering is almost non-existent now. Super happy!! Keep up the good work and don’t let this jinx you!!.Version: 2.2
Your life will change for the betterIf you are reading this review looking for an app that will stream video from any website - look no further! For the price of a couple of coffees, you will not be limited to watching browser videos on your small devices. Definitely pay the nominal fee for the premium service. It is totally worth it. Most video sites that provide video content for free have annoying pop-up ads, but with the premium version you can turn off those ads which makes navigating through sites so much easier. Is the app perfect? No of course not, but it's pretty close for it's intended purpose. This app takes casting to your TV beyond the limits of the mainstream casting devices. I am not a fake reviewer. I am an average middle-aged mother of five who is very happy to have found this app a year ago!.Version: 1.8
I don't normally do this but..Wow. This just solved so many problems. If you're skimming through reviews skeptically wondering if this is for real, kind of like I was about 10 minutes before I wrote this, you can rest easy.
I just tried a few different movie streaming sites and they casted to my TV faster than I was even ready for. In fact, immediately upon opening the app, it overrode my wife's chrome cast netflix show and she got mad at me. Until I casted the new J-Law movie Joy to demonstrate. Then she turned all smiles.
This app turns your Chromecast into what you THOUGHT it would be before you bought it and sadly realized your soul belonged to Google. Break free like I did. Watch EVERYTHING. Tell your friends. Then come back here and 5 star the hell out of this app..Version: 1.8
Works great!Thought it was just "ok" until I realized you could buy an add on to fast forward, pause, rewind for $1.99, now I think it's great! (Without the add on, it still works, but you have to play a video from beginning to end, with no way to control it) The add on makes all the difference in the world & it only cost 2 bucks! I can deal with that! Good job!! :)
Also, after reading other reviews, I will ad- Yes, it is a bit of a process to start a video, but it's a very small & easy process. I'm not very tech savvy at all, but even I find this pretty simple. And besides that, what better option do you have to cast videos that don't have a cast button? I don't know of any! I'd say this app works very well, especially for free + a $2 add on!!.Version: 1.8
Best Video Streaming App AvailableI've tried and tested a wide variety of streaming apps over the years and this one is easily the best I've found by far. I used to have to use an HDMI solution to stream my anime/movies to my HDTVs but now I just sync with my Chromecast and I'm set! I use this app almost daily, and the people who are complaining and/or giving it anything less than five stars simply didn't put more than 2-3 minutes' worth of effort to figure out the basics; didn't purchase to ad-free version (it's still very much useable without making any purchase(s)), or are too ignorant with software to do much of anything on their own. I highly recommend this app to anyone who's even remotely interested in video streaming..Version: 1.8
Started out great when chrome cast was getting bigBut now every time I go on to cast a movie on this app, I always get “video-ad detected. Press here to skip” I’ll press it and literally nothing happens. Itll like freeze and i have the ad blocker on. Yet it always asks me to allow or deny pop ups. I’ll deny said pop ups and again nothing will happen. I’ll reload the page and allow said pop ups and again nothing happens. It’s a bit frustrating when a simple process that would normally take me 5 minutes is now taking me 30 minutes or maybe even longer because pop ups need to be allowed or denied and video ads need to be skipped.. what was the point of me buying the entire bundle if it just makes things a bit more complicated..Version: 1.13
Great, but...The app is easy to work with and from the time I had it, there has been no issue until recently. I’ve been using this streaming site and it had worked perfectly so far, yet lately after 15 min within the movie it would automatically turn off and go back to the Home Screen. Of course I thought it may have been the site but after trying several different sites it does the same thing. I honestly don’t know if it’s me personally or a bug within the app. I had use the site before on the app and it has never done this until now..Version: 3.0
Bug with SeagateMedia AppThere's a bug when attempting to cast a video through the SeaGateMedia app. All of our devices connect to the same network, including the chromecast enabled TV. SeagateMedia is an app that is used to access our WIFI enabled portable drive. To access the drive and view videos from it, our iPad/iPhone needs to connect to it via WIFI. The drive itself is set up to connect to our home's wifi network. So our iPads/iPhones get internet access indirectly through the drive's internet connection to our home network. When hitting the chrome cast icon within the SeaGateMedia app, the buffering icon appears on the TV and the iPad and times out after about 3-5 minutes..Version: 1.8
1 year later and still AWESOME!I got this a year ago and have loved it since the beginning. DEFINITELY worth purchasing all content. I haven't found a website yet that could get past the ad blocker, as long as u keep it up to date. The app is very user friendly. It has crashed less than a dozen times after a year of HEAVY usage, however it hasn't crashed a single time in the last 4 months. Has worked with around 95% of video formats I have tried. When one doesn't work a message pops up that it didn't work just agree to send the feedback and they r quick to make it compatible. Overall satisfaction is answered in the first sentence..Version: 1.8
Incredible!!!This app is seriously so good, I've been using it almost daily for the last few weeks with no bugs whatsoever and I don't know what I'd do without it! Beats me why Google doesn't just let us use ChromeCast from their own app, but if you need to, this thing really does the trick.
My only issue with it is that if I leave it open for too long and open it again, it refreshes and I lose the link I was using before, so for TV shows that can lose your place in the series. But that's admittedly probably my fault for not using the bookmarks feature, lol.
All in all I am so glad I found this app!! Thank you thank you wonderful devs for this!.Version: 1.8
MehI get the feeling that a lot of the 5 star reviews for this app are fake. But my guess is that the 1 star reviews are by idiots who can't make a toaster work. As often occurs, the truth probably lies somewhere in between.
This is a fairly functional app that fills a definite need, and does so with a minimum of hassle. But it's not the best thing since sliced bread, and there are drawbacks.
The biggest one is the constant focus on monetization. In the basic version, there is a pop-up after each video plays, and without the various features each available for purchase is pretty bare bones. It gets the job done, but doesn't offer much enjoyment.
There is a premium version that offers all the features and kills the ads, but at $6.95, seems a little pricey. I'm all for app makers reaping some benefit for their work, and these guys are no exception. But they're a little ham-handed about it and seem to be more focused on the money than the product.
I'm sure there are other alternatives to it, and I'll certainly be looking around. If I don't find any, I'll probably bite the bullet and pay for premium. If you think you might be using it very much, plan on doing the same. - J.R..Version: 1.8
Thank you guys so much!If you are like the rest of us trying to break free from the limitations of the regular chromecast streaming apps then this is for you. It takes some getting use to but once you figure out how the URL linking works and you get your bookmarks in order, you are golden. This app lets you stream ANY video on the internet straight to your chromecast as long as it has a valid link. I would highly recommend buying the advanced features for $5 or so dollars. Some of you may complain about having to pay anything but these developers have clearly worked hard on making this application work so support them..Version: 1.8
Cast everything to your chromecast!This app is everything I’d wanted when I’d first gotten my Chromecast! I was bummed that only certain apps were compatible while using an iPhone. There’s so many other browsers’ videos and phone videos I wanted to see on the big screen! With this app, that’s now possible!
I’m so happy I can stream my dramas that aren’t on Netflix onto my TV! For anyone that’s hesitating if this app actually works, believe me, it does. I even went ahead and purchased the premium bundle to have the entire experience available to me. Worth the money!
Good job to all of the hard workers on this app! Much appreciated!.Version: 1.11
AwakeningJust love this app...as soon as I started using it I was so happy to not be squinting over my ipad, or having neck pain looking down, or having to constantly have my reading glasses on....just look at the TV and everything that I can stream to my TV is there in lovely 55". WOW. Sometimes I have to tap a few more times to get it to stream, but that may be my chubby fingers. So easy to use, and I don't even have to stay on the App, I can surf the web at the same time watching my show. Fantastic. Only change I would make is it is hard to read the white lettering on the blue background..Version: 1.8
Thank you for the updates!I've been using this app for a few years. It quickly became my favorite.
I bought the full version after trying it out for a week. It was and is the only purchase I've ever made in the App Store. I'm completely satisfied with my purchase.
Over the years, the built in adblocker stopped blocking ads. Mobile ads also got more intrusive to the point that they would crash the app. In the recent updates, they added a feature that allows you to deny or allow a pop-ups, so this is no longer an issue.
I actually use this app to watch videos locally on my phone even when I'm not casting because the adblocker and pop-up blocker on the browser are better than safari.
*this app is an alternative/ more convenient option to hooking your computer up to your tv with an HDMI to watch videos. If you've never done that or don't understand why someone would do that, then this App is probably not for you..Version: 1.11
Works well, bookmarks could be betterThis app works well for me. I see no pop-ups whatsoever. Maybe those who see pop-ups have their player configured differently than mine.
The biggest shortcoming IMHO is the bookmarks page, which has almost no features. To bookmark a film, you go to the film's playback page in the browser, then hit the bookmark menu button which takes you to the bookmarks page. There, hit the + sign, clear the text box, type in the name of the film whose page you were just at, and hit your Return key or OK button.
To rearrange/sort your bookmarks page you hit "Edit" in upper right of bookmarks window and manually drag a bookmark up or down in the list. Also, there is no ability to categorize bookmarks in any way e.g. by genre, "film", "TV show" etc. Nor can the app automatically alphabetize bookmarks; you can only do this manually by drag and drop.
Fix the bookmarker and, for me, this might very well be a 5-star app..Version: 1.18
Amazing!This is the absolute best thing you can get for your Chromecast. My Apple TV recently broke, so I'm using a Chromecast while it gets repaired. This app makes a basically useless Chromecast great! I paid the $7, mainly to express my gratitude to the developers. The app is amazing before you spend the money, but the $7, does give you a few more features, like allowing you to change the homepage, and it removes the ads. If you're considering downloading this app, even a little bit, download it now. Anyone reviewing this app with less than 5 stars has no idea what they are talking about..Version: 1.8
Perfect app!Seriously so glad this app exists. I am usually too lazy to deal with getting my laptop out to cast things, and this app has allowed me to embrace that laziness.
The base version of the app is totally great, but I’ve also bought some add ons (remote play bar, ad blocker) that I think make it even better.
I’ve been using the app for well over a year and only a handful of times have come across a link that won’t play or app crashing or some other fluke error. But nothing has been a persistent issue. And it’s nothing that will stop me from rating 5 stars!.Version: 1.25
TV And Video Casting AppI am beyond just being satisfied, this App exceeded every expectation I ever had.
Just to be clear, I have never ever paid for an app before, and after trying out this app, I was so happy with the way it works, I actually paid 5 or 6 dollars for premium services.
I can cast any video from any website onto my HDTV, using both iPad Air and iPhone 6s.
With this app and my chrome cast, I can watch anything I want from the web on my TV without a single wire anywhere in sight.
Bottom line is this app is amazing, and I have recommended it to all my friends!.Version: 1.8
Works, pleasing workaround for IPhoneAs an iOS user with a Chromecast, I was frustrated with the lack of support for using two of my paid-for devices for their paid-for uses. This app was recommended on one forum, I downloaded and was casting from the (in app) browser within minutes, after an hour of trying to make Safari and Chrome work.
Well coded, free (I’m ok with ads paying for its developers hard work) and simple. I’m starting with 4 stars because I only just downloaded, will likely upgrade to 5 if I don’t see any problems using it for the next few days..Version: 1.13
Awesome reliable appThis is my first review ever but after 2 years of using this particular gem I think I should finally put in my two cents and say this app does just what it’s meant to do and even guides you along the way if you need it, minor troubleshooting (of which I had no issues)as well. The upgrade gives you amongst other things, in-app “scrubbing” which is basically the ability to pause, play, ff...etc. well worth the price of admission. I have an iPhone and this app works beautifully with my chromecast. Thank you!.Version: 1.20
Great Support All Around!I downloaded this app in the hopes that it would work with NJPW World. It did not. However, I saw that they request any non-working sites be sent to them in the hopes that they can add them to future versions. Sure enough, I worked via email with their staff to get more detail on the issue, and in the latest version, NJPW World works flawlessly! I am no longer resigned to watching the best wrestling in the world on my phone or computer screen. I can't say enough nice things about this app and the people behind it!.Version: 1.8
Great, but it could use a f.lux featureThe app is terrific. Sometimes it crashes or isn't able to stream on certain websites, but that is rare.
It would be nice to have a f.lux-like feature that reduces the blue light exposure in a future update. I sometimes use the app as my primary browser to watch videos since it comes with ad block.
Also, making the app more night friendly would also be nice. A bright blue screen is hard on the eyes both on my phone and when I open it on my tv using my Chromecast. There's a reason Netflix uses dark red and black....Version: 1.10
Superb appI recommend this app to everyone I know, and they love everything about it. I sincerely appreciate all the work you and your team have devoted to this. Thank you so much for maintaining it, you’re tops in my book! I only wonder if there could ever be a pause to buffer feature. Every now and then I come across feeds that slog. I know that’s not an issue on your end, but could a feature be implemented to halt playback for a time and let the feed catch up? Only curious. Thanks again for all you do!.Version: 1.25
Chromecast reviewAll in all this app i have is pretty darn good. Then only thing I can say negative about it is the playing of an ad before you can broadcast and screen mirror before the video and can start to play thru my IPHONE 11. But one can also expect this when the free app to stream videos from a web, i. personal media, or downloaded movies, etc. is what requires this. As compared to having an upgraded version of the app and a person can pause rewind. Obviously my only complaint is I would like to have the upgraded app for free That supposedl.Version: 2.0
It actually worksYou can just search up anything you want in the search bar they provide. A sweet feature they have is if you are watching a video/movie you can go on a different app and it won’t interrupt the video/movie. Though their are some extra features for watching videos/movies you can purchase (fast forward or rewind through the video) but don’t worry because they are really inexpensive and you DONT HAVE TO buy it, it will work just fine without it..Version: 1.12
Works great with iPad Pro 9.7 with iOS 9.3.2Tl;dr
The video streaming works great, but the browser is missing tabbed browsing and doesn't support some sites that require logging in.
Have used this for several months, no crashing and flawless streaming.
After extended use, there are two deficiencies with the app that prevent a 5 star rating.
First, the browser is bare bones. There is no tabbed browsing. You can only have one page open at any given time. Sometimes, if you're on an ad supported site that would regularly open a new tab, you'll instead be redirected away from the page and have to use the back button to navigate back to the intended content.
Second, the browser doesn't support sites that use a native login prompt. That's the login box that's part of the browser that pops up and says "Authentication Required." You can't use these sites at all due to this oversight..Version: 1.8
So far so greatI thought Chromecast was going to let me stream from my phone or tablet straight into my HDTV but it didn't but luckily I found this app and so far I've been extremely pleased with the it. It's easy to navigate and I've not had any problems streaming anything to my TV. I've streamed everything from hit movies to music and the occasional not so G rated site with no problems, however I am going to purchase the premium bundle so I can fast-forward and rewind with ease and drop a few of the ads..Version: 1.8
Most times the app worksMost of the time this apps works but it’s not uncommon to encounter issues with certain video steams being unsupported or not working. Sometimes issues with videos not playing can be fixed by waiting for the pop up to skip commercials and then choosing to play video, and/or copying and pasting the linking then attempting to play the video when prompted. However even with these common problems I still find this app much better then others I have previously tried in the past. This is still the first app I’ll use when wasting to cast videos to tv.Version: 1.19
Good for the most part.I bought the premium version and it works pretty well for the most part. There are times it disconnects. Most of the time it casts perfectly! Great for live streaming. Rewinding and fast forwarding isn't smooth so I avoid using it. I turned off the notifications but the app continues telling me to turn it on even though I paid for the premium version to avoid annoying things like this. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and hope the developers continue improving the app. It has a lot of potential..Version: 1.8
Awesome must have for ChromecastFinally, u can stream dirty movies to ur Chromecast. It works on just about all the tube websites so-long as the format isn't windows media. It works best where there is only 1 tube on the page. Haven't been able to work with multi-video pages, but i haven't encountered a video that does work in safari that i can't open with this app.
Typically, i find the video in safari, then copy/paste address into this app's browser. Cheers to them Germans- thanks for helping me get my fix :).Version: 1.8
One of the best paid apps…out there..!I’m going to make this quick and simple. If you are looking to cast anything from any devices this is it for a one time payment and very reasonable you can have ff at anytime so don’t delay you won’t be disappointed. There’s lots of other features if you like as well. So go on to the site but first you need to download the and browse thru the application and choose what you liked. Happy trails.✌️.Version: 3.3
Love it!!This app is life!! This makes buying the chromecast worth it! Yeah it has some features that you have to buy, but you don't need them to use it. I haven't bought them and still enjoy this app very much. You can watch almost any video you come across online...it was buggy at first (used to stop the video for no reason and if you hadn't purchased scrollbar you had to start all over) but it seems like it has been fixed. So besides that, Love love love the app!! 😊.Version: 1.8
Good for live concertJust watched koerner hall piano concert streamed to chrome cast. Worked better than I expected.Version: 3.3
AppGreat app but it needs to be updated so there is no buffer problem and it dosent shut off after an hour. Other that that the app is great keep up the good work.Version: 1.8
Keeps buggingSo after buying the full version, the app does work. However often a the app would just shut down in the middle of the video. And I would need to reset the video. Also it would stop often to buffer. I would appreciate if the bug get fixed to avoid the app shutting down on its own..Version: 2.4
Love it!Awesome!.Version: 1.8
Ad blocking the screenI purchased the premium on my ipad which has just died, now I’m using my old phone to stream and I’m dissapointed that it doesn’t ask for a login so I can use the premium on this new device. Now I can only watch a shows for a certain time until the ad to go premium pops up and blocks part of the screen.
With the response teams help I was able to restore my purchase on the other mobile device and it’s now working the way I’m accustomed to!.Version: 3.3
Lovin’ every minute of it!Whoo hoo.Version: 3.3

Love itThank you.Version: 3.3
AwesomeJust bought the full version to unlock all the features. Worth every penny. Works amazing with the chrome cast :).Version: 3.3

Absolutely rock solid appWorking smooth as heck on my iphone XS max on the latest ios 14.3, allowing me to watch all of my content on my google chrome cast with google tv. Purchasing the premium to support this app, they deserve the $. Allowing me to have the full experience with ads was key. I know that this works well and it’s worth the purchase..Version: 3.1
The app doesn’t work in CanadaSince yesterday the app stopped working. Can’t detect and cast on my Sony tv. All other steaming apps work fine except for this app.Version: 3.1

I love it so farI purchased the full version and it’s still good to Chromecast video online easily. But I still don’t see the option to enable the subtitles even though the website i use to watch movies has them🤔. So I would like to know how because I purchased that option too.Version: 3.0
