LocalCast for Chromecast/DLNA

LocalCast is the number one casting solution on Android with over 3,000,000 users! Send videos, music or pictures FROM your phone or tablet, NAS (DLNA/UPnP or Samba), Google Drive, Google+, Dropbox or a webpage TO a Chromecast, Roku, Nexus Player, Amazon Fire TV or Stick, AppleTV, Sony Bravia, Samsung, LG, Panasonic and other SmartTVs, Sonos, Xbox 360, Xbox One or other DLNA Devices. // Unique features - Videos: Zoom & rotate (Chromecast & other Google Cast devices) - Pictures: Zoom & rotate & pan Chromecast & other Google Cast devices) - NAS: SMB access - Subtitles: Opensubtitle.org integration & subs from the same folder will be added automatically // Videos Please be aware that the Chromecast only supports a couple of formats. It 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. (I am looking into "on-the-fly" transcoding) // Music If you cast from your device or DLNA, the album cover will be displayed on the TV. The queue and playlists work with all files, but were added to easily set up music for your next party and don't worry about it. // 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: You can easily add subtitles. You can download them easily inside the app from Opensubtitles.org. Subtitles in the same folder will be added automatically. You can set a dedicated subtitle folder which will be searched when you start a video. Subtitle timing, font, background and color can be changed. You can change the subtitle encoding in the settings, e.g. for arabic subtitles choose UTF-8 Internal subtitles which are inside the video container don't work YET // Wireless headphones (beta) Touch "Route audio to phone" on the "Now playing" screen, to listen to what you are watching on your phone.
