This app is not a mirroring app, you have to find a video while browsing the web and it will send that video to the Chromecast. It does not do tab casting.
Because of the nature of the sites a lot of the users of this app visit, videos will fail to play or BUFFER a lot when those sites (and their respective content providers) are under heavy load, specially on the weekends. There isn't anything this app or the Chromecast can do to fix that issue as it is only a server side issue.
HLS Live streams are supported (m3u8), as well as other videos which used the same file format. Not all streaming devices support M3U8 files. Chromecast, FireTV and AppleTV do support them.
Aside from the ability to cast videos to a Chromecast device this app also allows you to download videos, you should of course make sure you have permission from the copyright holder before downloading any videos. You can start the video downloader from the video list dialog. Live streams (m3u8) are not downloadable but mp4/avi/webm and other video formats work.
Instructions for casting:
Find a web video you want to watch in the browser.
Connect to a streaming device.
Play the video as you normally would or click the play button on the app menu.
Then all you have to do is relax and enjoy the video.
