CastBox Android App - Cast media from your phone to your Chromecast, Xbox and selected Smart TVs

Found this brilliant little free (no iAP) casting app which can cast media from your phone to your Chromecast. Can also be used to stream from apps such as showbox.

When I try streaming from showbox it shows the source as unknown and will not let me stream it, however I can mirror my pictures onto my tv using this app.

Any way to fix this.

What particular movie did you try or was that issue on more than one video?

I have an S3 and a 2010 Sony Smart TV and have been thwarted at every attempt to see my phone's content on "the big screen"!
"Miracast" doesn't recognise my TV,....nor does "BubbleuPnP", and I've been told not to hold my breath for "Chromecast" to be able to do this!
Would be very interested to hear if anyone with the same kit has any luck using this app and Chromecast!

showbox adds .temp to end of mp4 file when downloaded. use file manager or astra to delete .temp part of file name and it will now cast fine.

anything for ios that do same thing please?

Prefer AllCast myself.

Localcast looks quite nice.

AllCast perfect streaming all the time. easy instructions on how to use on Youtube.

Local cast man myself. Viera, chromecast, no problem on either.

PixoCast … PixoCast https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pixocast-watch-your-mobile/id814298961?mt=8But is a paid app and not too sure about casting any streams

cheers

I have really struggled to play anything from showbox since the last 2 app updates.

Regularly get a can't support mp4 format error messages regardless of the cast app I use

Any suggestions to fix? I always thought downloading was a worse .... ahem.... moral position than straight streaming

I use yatse from the play store which is remote but also allows streaming straight from showbox to my raspberry pi without downloading the film to my phone. Leaves my phone free once the stream info is sent too :-)

I thought this app would stream it, and would rathwr not download, thanks for the suggestion though.

If anyone has problems like I did streaming to their xbox one use local cast, works a charm.

been getting error messages that no app can open the movie! so I normally then play through showbox and it works fine!

Another shout for local cast. Top app

just tried this app to view WhatsApp-sent vid and it played upside down. I've let the developers know. I was a bit hesitant as download count was only around 1000 but took a chance.

Local cast all the way

Showbox+allcast+Apple TV perfect

Try localcast

Also can anyone use showbox with mobile data 3g or 4g, I can only seem to use wifi

Thought I would add an easy solution to the problems people seem to be having casting to tv using showbox.

I sussed it by accident while using localcast, I did try others, bubbleUpnp, chromecast and cast to TV, but localcast worked best and it's free :-)
Run localcast and find your chromecast dongle.
Open Showbox and find your movie - Tv episode.
There's a tick in the white box which says "use internal player", untick this box.
Click on watch now and a menu will appear, choose localcast, a white page with a box will appear choose play, wait a second or two and watch your movie.

As a bonus, if you open showbox from the menu on your phone or tablet, click on the next episode or film you're going to watch, press watch now, choose localcast from the menu and a white page with a box appears, choose enqueue and the next episode starts automatically. You can queue as many films or episodes you like.

Good luck and happy viewing.

Yes 4g fine. Not tried casting it though.

Anyone know a work around - I've found that I can only 'cast' a video from showbox to apple tv as
long as they are on the same wifi - which is fine at home but when I go to my dads, who doesn't have
broadband, and use direct wifi to his tv it disconnects my phone from the internet. So it no longer
works.

Is there a way I can stream a show via 3g/4g and then beam it to a apple tv or chrome cast at the same
time?

I struggled with some stuff on local cast however I found an app called web video caster and its not failed in the slightest also to stream live TV chrome plays up although I found an app called film online not the best quality but plenty of channels

All cast for my Sony works brill, not tried anything else mind you

need something like this that runs on android 2.3

Try Skifta if the above do not give you the results you need, I find it does the job.

Allcast works fine with showbox. Only problem is that it costs £2.99.

Anyone found a good app to stream live football from?
