R-Cast


Cast online videos from your Android device to Roku! This app is intended to help cast videos embedded in websites that don't have a Roku channel.

Install the R-Cast channel and R-Cast app in your Roku and Android devices respectively. Once you connect the devices to the same Wi-Fi network, this app will detect your Roku devices.

Browse the web for videos in the Android app and cast them to the Roku channel. It's that easy!

Please note that not all videos can be cast including HTTPS, Flash videos, live streams. If you see R-Cast channel load the video and return to the home screen it is usually because of incompatible video format. Roku doesn't play all video formats that play in Android devices.

Videos in the web that are not in high definition, might not look the same on your HD TV as they look in a small screen. If the video website already has a Roku channel, please use its channel.

UPDATE 7/30/14: YouTube videos will not cast in Android 4.4 devices, please use the YouTube app.

Quick Start:
* Install R-Cast channel in your Roku device: https://owner.roku.com/add/rcast
* Install R-Cast app in your Android device
* Connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Roku device
* The app will detect Roku devices in your network
* Browse the web for your favorite entertainment
* In Android 4.3 or earlier, play videos in full view for the cast menu
* In Android 4.4 or later, just start videos to launch the cast menu
* Select the Roku device to cast and voila!
* Enjoy videos on the big screen!!

Worked great for a day...then it all went to crap! I installed, paid the money to be commercial free and for an entire day it worked beautifully. Day 2, would go to roku, play the intro...not all of it and crash to the main roku screen. I uninstalled, re-installed it and nothing. Both times paid for the commercial free! Gonna have to sadly uninstall and ask for BOTH refunds back. What happened? I already had friends and family hyped about this. Had to take the walk of shame telling them what happened. That it's not good any longer.
