Video & TV Cast Browser for Chromecast for IOS

Found 24th Feb 2015
Hi,I have been using this for the last two days and have managed to stream websites to my TV via Chromecast. I know some Androids can do this, but not IPads/iPhones, so this is a great little app. Last night I streamed HD quality Big Hiro 6 without any issues.

Watch any web video or local video on your Chromecast device and enjoy the show on your big screen.

With Video & TV Cast you can browse through the web and stream any video you want on your Chromecast device

good find - I haven't tried it yet, but from the description it is going to add to iOS the little bit of functionality missing from the PC/Android set-up - being able to cast individual tabs on a browser to the Chromecast. Deep joy; being able to lie in bed and watch CreativeLive on the bedroom TV. Heat from me.

Hoping that there will be more apps for casting like there are for BBC iPlayer and Lynda.com. For anyone who wants a list of Cast Ready apps here's the link

This is a gret little app for the ipad, I use it all the time. You have to pay for additional features like being able to scrub forwards or backwards on the video but it is worth it.

I've upgraded to the full app too, well worth the money!

Top app! Been using it for a while

I know...I stumbled across it and after some niggles (mainly because I had Weblock running and ignorant first time user) I managed to get it casting no probs. I will buy the full app as I think it is worth it! Why am I paying for Now TV again I ask myself..

Plus this is a first for me..i put this deal in Misc (as it wasn't a deal) but the mods have moved it to freebies?!

That's why I put it in Misc originally- it is a freebie yes but not really a deal in my mind. I mean it hasn't had its price reduced - just a useful app for those who would like to cast from a website. Give it a go I am very happy to have found it.

Thanks op - very useful app.

Great potential with this one..., anything to do with Chromecast should be good. Mucho heat!

Very impressive, plays starsports on the big screen without the need for Apple TV.

Well worth the £4.99 upgrade for ad free and full usage. The ads are pretty intrusive while using the app, and the paid option great to use.

Why not try AllCast, not as expensive as this app.

Can you cast videos from Internet sites using that app? Looks like you can't so not really comparable.

How? I have installed it but no choices to cast embedded videos in websites...

Looks a Great App.
I'm just very confused how I get it to work.
Do I have to buy anything to make this happen?
I have a iPhone.

Open the app, it will connect to chromecast automatically, then browse to website with a video you want to watch. Once the app discovers the media to play it offers to cast it- a link at the bottom will be show and that is how you cast the video. Pretty easy to be honest but they do have a demo video you can watch on the home screen.

So can I cast moviebox off my iPhone to the chromecast with this app?

Not sure but I would think that app would need Chromecast support-it is simple to be honest. For example, I use a website like "movie tube"(they have a HD sections so quality is great) and cast that to the TV via Chromecast. Lot of sites can be used and they are increasing the number of supported sites

Thanks OP! Great app!

I've got videos downloaded onto my iPhone but can't find a way to cast them. They're on the phone and can be accessed by an app which they were downloaded from. They don't appear in the usual video folder so can't access them any other way. Any ideas anyone?

What site did u stream big hero 6 from? Thanks

If browser based then, possibly, yes- so give it a try? If an app then that needs to be supported by Chromecast directly- or use an Android device which can cast its screen (or install Avia say.) More choices with Android so that is why I was v.happy to find this for IOS!

There are other sites though....just have a look for yourself but, at least, with "movie tube" it contains an HD section so the quality is Now TV quality...without the subs

I use my phone all the time while casting though allcast and local cast to tv

I have a ton of apps for casting to my Chromecast but have to say this one is pretty hassle free from my iPhone just a shame no longer showbox for iOS but on line movies.pro is pretty good

Very nice app. Thanks OP.. I use Adblock for iOS.. This is able to dodge most of the annoying ads.. Not only for this app but ads across all the other apps..

adbl0ck.com/

works really well for me, thanks!

for those not aware g2g.fm is great for movies, tv shows and music. I also use couchtuner.eu for all the latest shows you should be able to cast to your tv from these sites

Where can I watch sky sports? On this??
