LocalCast for Chromecast

Stefan Pledl
Cast webvideos, local videos, music or pictures to a Chromecast, Apple TV or Smart TV.

FROM your iPhone, iPad or iPod or NAS, DLNA/UPnP, Google Drive, Dropbox or a webpage

TO AppleTV 4th Gen, Chromecast, Nexus Player, Amazon Fire TV, SmartTV, Sonos, Xbox 360, Xbox One or other DLNA devices.

// Web

Browse webpages in the app. If a streamable video is found on the page you can send it to your TV.

// Pro Version

The app is free and fully functional. In order to keep the app free there are advertisements on the bottom of the screen and sometimes a fullscreen ad will pop up. You can disable both type of ads, by purchasing the Pro Version via the in-app purchase.

// Videos

Please be aware that the Chromecast only supports a couple of formats. Videos stored on your iPhone, iPad or iPod will be transcoded automatically. For videos on other sources:
The Chromecast can read containers like mp4, mkv, 3gp and m4v, but all these containers can use different codecs. If you can't hear the audio of a video, then the audio codec is not supported. If you can't see the video but hear the audio, then the video codec is not supported.


// Music

If you cast from your device or DLNA, the album cover will be displayed on the TV. Playlists will be added soon.


// Pictures

On a Chromecast, Nexus Player or other Cast device:
You can rotate, zoom and pan pictures easily from the "Now playing" screen, just touch the button with the four arrows.


// Subtitles

If you use a Chromecast, Nexus Player or other Cast device:
Subtitles from DLNA servers will be added automatically. You can use the integrated Opensubtitles.org search to add a subtitle manually.
Internal subtitles which are inside the video container don't work.
