Sorry This app was completely unable to play any of the files I tried. When it didn't state that the format is not supported, either the sound was missing or the video just never loaded.

Casts my vids and pics! One suggestion would be to allow an option to show hidden files. Direct Cast Lite does that. Otherwise it Works great! I recommend! HTC One M8
