One photo I can cast one photo. A swipe or exit and restart blinks the TV screen, but the first photo cast is the only one I see, on a Kenobi tablet, or a Samsung Galaxy Canberra 2

At last Chromecast is useful I've tried so many apps that state they stream local contact from my android device. Well from my experiences with the awful Allcast, and Realplayer (which only plays selected files, usually the ones I don't need). So far this has handled all media stored on my device, from downloaded shows to jpegs. Finally getting the use out of Chromecast. Will get the paid for version after I've trialled this for a week. Good work
