If something doesn't work, please visit the FAQ (english only right now): www.localcast-app.com/faq


// Pictures

On a Chromecast:
Rotate, zoom and pan pictures easily from the "Now playing" screen, touch the
button with the four arrows.


// Subtitles

Subtitles work with Chromecast and Apple TV 4:
- Use the Opensubtitles.org integration
- Touch a subtitle file after you started a video
Subtitles in the same folder are added automatically.
You can set a subtitle folder which will be searched.
Subtitle timing, font, background and color can be changed.
Subtitle encoding in the settings: e.g. for arabic subtitles choose UTF-8
Some DLNA servers add information about subtitles, some don't.


// Wireless headphones (beta)

Touch "Route audio to phone" on the "Now playing" screen, to stream the sound to your phone.
It's impossible to sync this automatically and network delays make it hard.
This feature is in beta: it might work most of the time.

Works OK, but takes 10 minutes (!) to install and 10 minutes "optimising apps 1 of 1" on EACH phone startup. Something is terribly wrong. Full Review

This is a vast improvement over the past couple of version. The constant starting and stopping while trying to watch a movie finally stopped. Hurray! Full Review

Great app. But the ads are really intrusive often to the point of losing the flow. Luckily i got my phone rooted and adaway keeps the ads at bay. Full Review

I needed one simple functionality. I just needed an app to play the music stored on my phone send it to a Chromecast; without putting it on a NAS, without putting out on a computer, without uploading it on a cloud, without DLNA, without uPnP. This aap is exactly what I was looking for. Plays most everything from my phone without glitch. This is deserving of 10 out of 10 stars. I have been miserly with the rating for one simple reason. Way too many ads. But I hope to get the pro version soon, and then, bye bye adverts. Full Review
