Good but one thing Need to have option to rotate video that I captured in landscape so I don't have to hold my head to the side to view on my TV

1080 video freezes intermitently This app does chromecast alright but misses on basic features such as slideshow. I tried viewing video shot by phone, and video freezes intermitently.

Excellent Works flawlessly on my xperia z and nexus 10. I can now finally chromecast all my Picasa photos and video clips via Google +. It works quickly with no buffering, brilliant!
