the list will build up, no way to clear it unless you close the app and open again. I found something else which is better, and can bookmark the video also. Uninstalled.

Its OK... Incompatibilities? Sure it casts videos from the Internet, and that function is splendid. But the problem is, it only casts SOME... I don't really know why, but even though I tried to play a mp4 video, it doesn't find it, as if invisible, although in some websites, their videos actually play fine. Maybe this app needs more compatible video formats. Please update it and maybe increase more compatible video formats, since this is my Fave app for using chromecast on my laptop.


Basic functionality Does what I need it to do: control what I cast from my PC. I have other apps on my android smartphone that I use to cast internet videos, but this comes in handy when I use the CastBuddy extension from my PC Chrome browser. Crashes fairly frequently, but is quick to reconnect and hasn't really been too much hassle.

Hangs all the time on pressing Videos button. Usability is awful. :(

Great app so I can close my laptop after I find a movie to stream. Would like to see a mute button if possible. Option to mute/pause on phone call or text message. A recent tab and favorites tab. "Allow soft renaming of files so we can recognize what's in our favorites and recent. Other wise love the app.
