Nice on Asus memo pad HD7 tablet. It plays videos well for the most part. It doesn't play all videos but there's a lot to choose from on the net. I like how you can block the pop ups which is really helpful when there are too many. I would have to say though that it occasionally has some stability problems. Videos just won't load that well and it'll randomly back out of a video and stop playing all together. If it wasn't for that I'd give it 5 stars. Overall a great app though, glad I bought it. :-)

Great App!! Works exactly as described with both my phone (note 4) and tablet (tab 3) using Fire TV stick. Open the app find a web video and play it by selecting the device from the pop up.
