Fantastic! One thing... This is the best casting app! One option I'd like to have is to NOT display the file type. Basically, to show "The Dark Knight" instead of "The Dark Knight.mp4"

Cannot automatically play the next video Need to manually click to play the next video. Good for individual video but not when you want a folder being played. Also can not play by folder.
