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.

Confused This looks like it should be a decent app, but all it does is play videos locally on my phone, I see no option to select my Chromecast anywhere.
