Cast screen shuts itself off after 10-20 seconds Samsung Galaxy S5 when going to the Chromecast app, using the cast screen option, it will connect the phone and TV for only 10 to 20 seconds and automatically shut the cast screen connection off!?!?

More improvements It needs to be more polished. But if you have. a TV with hdmi and just need to stream to it it works great. I used an iPhone to stream to my TV and it works better, I can send a movie to chromecast an still use the iPhone independently. Example: send Netflix to TV, give iphone to kid to watch YouTube and the volume controls do not change the volume on the TV, android doesn't work that way. While playing music needs to have a clock and the option to see the weather. On the TV

Flixster playback issues. Supposedly compatible After a long wait for Chromecast to support flixster so I could play my ultraviolet collection on tv only to find I get movie sound but not picture. Occasional movie trailers work but nothing else. Was casting Chromecast from hudl2 to latest Samsung smart tv. Sort it out !!!! Had to purchase Roku stick to watch flixster and even then roku only plays some of flixster movies on my tv. Finally resolved problem by wirelessly casting flixster to roku stick from hudl2 which makes roku a better buy than Chromecast
