I paid for this? Paired with fire TV fine. Asks if you want to cast to fire then 'unable to play video'. After that, it asks repeatedly, starts and then fails. Meanwhile, you can't see your video due to the pop ups, can't stop the app.

Firecast It's ok, you have to use their browser to watch instead of being able to mirror what's on your cell

Had some problems but works fine now. Edit: I finally came back to using Firecast to try it using HTML 5 videos and it seems to work just fine there. Before I was doing 1080p download links that would open a video player in another tab to stream and it would often pause for a few seconds every 5 - 10 minutes. Chromecast didn't do that so I was a bit confused. But I feel it's still preferable to enjoy my streamed shows with a remote to skip through certain content. It's definitely worth it if you often watch video streaming sites.
