CloudCaster

CloudCaster


CloudCaster enables you to cast supported media files directly from the cloud to your Chromecast.
Perfect if you need to display pictures or play video/audio from the cloud in your living room.


What CloudCaster can do
CloudCaster can cast supported media directly to the Chromecast. For it to work, the media file and its codecs has to be supported by the Chromecast. See supported media here: https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media
If you experience black screen, screen tears or corrupted audio, your file is most likely not supported.

CloudCaster can not transcode audio or video, since media is cast directly from the cloud provider to your Chromecast. Be sure your internet connection is of high quality to ensure audio and video files doesn't lag. When streaming directly from the cloud to the Chromecast, CloudCaster cannot influence the quality of service - it acts merely as a remote control.

Free version
The free edition of CloudCaster contains ads and only allows you to add one cloud account.
If you upgrade to the premium version via in-app purchase, ads will be removed, you can configure unlimited accounts and save favorites. Please restart app after buying premium version.

What's Going On? It doesn't play ANY standard and popular video formats?? I was ready to buy this app… but now, it's useless to me. Why??? Why doesn't it support video formats we all have?? Why?? Plus, there is no sound on mp3's. ?? I tried everything to no avail! Uninstalled this really bad piece of code!

Ignores my premium key Because it won't let me select which account to use it with. I've got two Google accounts on this device, I'm not buying the app twice just so I can use it without ads. Also, unfortunately, pretty bad performance when it was working.
