Cast online videos from your Android device to Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick! This app is intended to help cast videos embedded in websites that are not directly accessible in Fire TV.

Install "Firecast Player" in your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick and then install this "Firecast" app in your Android device. Once you connect the devices to the same Wi-Fi network, this app will detect the Fire TV.

Browse the web for videos in the Firecast app and cast them to the Firecast Player in your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick. It's that easy!

Please note that not all videos can be cast (like Flash videos, live streams, etc). Videos in the web that are not in high definition, might not look the same on your HD TV as they look in a small screen.

UPDATE 7/30/14: YouTube videos will not cast in Android 4.4 devices, please use the YouTube app.

Quick Start:
* Install Firecast Player app in your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick:
* Install this Firecast app in your Android device
* Connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Fire TV
* This app will detect the Fire TV in your network
* Browse the web for your favorite entertainment
* In Android 4.3 or earlier, play videos in full view for the cast menu
* In Android 4.4 or later, just start videos to launch the cast menu
* Select the Fire TV to cast and voila!
* Enjoy videos on the big screen!!

Upgrade to the FLAMIN' edition to watch videos longer than 10 minutes. The upgrade removes the ads at the bottom of the browser. It doesn't remove the ads hosted by the websites you visit.

I paid for this? Paired with fire TV fine. Asks if you want to cast to fire then 'unable to play video'. After that, it asks repeatedly, starts and then fails. Meanwhile, you can't see your video due to the pop ups, can't stop the app.

Works Great! Works fantastic with my Fire TV stick! I was looking for something that could cast individual videos as opposed to screen mirroring. This works perfectly. The only thing that could be changed is that, when I choose casting, it still begins to play on my phone. Not a major issue... I just have to stop it. But it would be nice if I didn't have to. Great app! Thanks!

Had some problems but works fine now. Edit: I finally came back to using Firecast to try it using HTML 5 videos and it seems to work just fine there. Before I was doing 1080p download links that would open a video player in another tab to stream and it would often pause for a few seconds every 5 - 10 minutes. Chromecast didn't do that so I was a bit confused. But I feel it's still preferable to enjoy my streamed shows with a remote to skip through certain content. It's definitely worth it if you often watch video streaming sites.

Nice on Asus memo pad HD7 tablet. It plays videos well for the most part. It doesn't play all videos but there's a lot to choose from on the net. I like how you can block the pop ups which is really helpful when there are too many. I would have to say though that it occasionally has some stability problems. Videos just won't load that well and it'll randomly back out of a video and stop playing all together. If it wasn't for that I'd give it 5 stars. Overall a great app though, glad I bought it. :-)

Better than allcast This is the only app that can stream Google drive videos with sound no matter the audio codec. Allcast stream Google drive but audio has to be compatible with firetv.

Nathan Dann

Exactly what I needed Awesome quality... Flawless no skips! This is the only app I've ever submitted a rating for so I'm pretty impressed

Firecast It's ok, you have to use their browser to watch instead of being able to mirror what's on your cell

William Kilvington

Great App!! Works exactly as described with both my phone (note 4) and tablet (tab 3) using Fire TV stick. Open the app find a web video and play it by selecting the device from the pop up.

Johnson Doan

READ REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING!!!!! just downloaded it. its their own browser you use to view content. BUT went to 10 different sites.... tv network sites, news sites, etc. NONE WORKED! MY CONNECTION IS PERFECT BUT NOT A SINGKE SITE WORKED. all other sites that work ALREADY HAVE a compatible FIRE TV app available anyway. So tired of these false promise apps! Dont do it!

John Crisp

Free worked, Paid didn't! What a disappointment! I tried the free version and it worked great for the advertised 10 minutes. Bought the app and it won't go to the big screen anymore. On the same network as the Fire Stick. UPDATE: Can I not play live stream events on this? It appears to play recorded events but not live streaming.

Stockton Sam

Doesn't work with all websites

Tony Alldis

Great app for casting everyday web video content to your TV via the FireTV. Had no issues with is at all. Nice to find a useful app that just works!

Alex Solis

Works Its basically a browser that casts whatever video you fullscreen, but it works.

khoi tran

Todd Nochomson

kranthi kiran

Jiwook Kim

Great tool Love this tool

Alethea Hamilton

Good bones Works well. Got the paid version. Customer service is also great for any bumps in the road which so far are minimal.

jaehong park

Good It works now. So good, but youtube contents doesn't work in this app.

Ben Philips

Galaxy S3 & S4 - works perfectly!

G Duvall

10 Minute Limit for free Uninstalled. Not free with ads and a 10 min limit. My S4 has mirroring built in but not currently supported on fire stick. Oh well.

Jonathan Vilela

Didn't work Downloaded app on phone and FireTV, won't play any videos

Lee Keller

Sucks All it does is advertise blip TV. Totally worthless except to practice the uninstall process.

Jorge D. Alvarez

Not good.. Ate my battery in record time, had to uninstall.

Vernom Tyrell

It's ok It would he better without having to fix the bug were it doesn't know if I payed and some stuff I cast I have to constantly ex out pop ups

Jory Andre

Paid for full version The app works maybe 10% of the time, usually when I try to cast a video it'll play the ad overlay and then crash on my fire stick. It wont play the video

Breanne Mayen

Some days are better then others.

im Batman

Not working It said error every time I try to play a video

John Koeck

Don't Read Negative Reviews ...because this thing works wonders. The people saying it doesn't work must not know anything about technology. Finds both my Fire TV and Fire TV stick. Love it!

Dan Clarke-Hall

Works great Only have the free version currently but will upgrade later today. Watch a lot of webcasts and have yet to find a video this cannot stream. Using Galaxy S4

Jennifer Butler

When I play a video The app asks where I want to cast. I'll select my fire tv then a pop up ad comes. It won't cast. I'm not paying for the app unless I can actually test it first

tony kiesel

Unable to play or error every video Every video says either error casting or unable to play. Free trial worked just fine. Do not upgrade.

DaVette H

Yea it is awesome When I will play one video. And it wont do that

Brian Saltzman

Doesn't work Unless u want no functionality and a lot of ads skip this app

J.C. Stein

Fast & dependable Works great with fire stick. Smooth streaming. Highly recommend. Paid version well worth it.

Tyler Simpson

It is a great app, everything you need from it, it provides. The only thing I don't like is how you lose your spot in your video if you leave the app on your fire tv. But, other than that it is a great app.

Bobbi ray

Does not work with Galaxy Note edge

Gaurav Pandey

I liked it but need help... Hi Developers, I have been pretty happy with the app and it works as promised. But lately I have been having issue with some of the videos as it seems the browser inbuilt in the app is old and the websites I am trying to play the video need an updated browser. Request you to please update the browser and once again become the awesome.

Sail J

Didn't work I tried casting vimeo video and I get error casting please try again. I tried 5 times and I get same message.

Harry Mumma

Almost gave it 1 star Worked great on fee version so i upgraded. Then it wouldn't let me play what i had already played. As i was rating 1 star it started playing and has been fine since.

Zoey Dog

Didn't Work Tried it with two phones..nope and nope. Neither worked. Got an error message several times.

Marsiella B. Dennis

Works awesomely! I love this app it's works extremely well with Amazon Fire tv (2015 version). If are looking an app to stream videos from your browser, look no further.

Justin Willison

Doesn't always work.. even in paid version I bought this for use to stream swearnet to my fire tv stick.. it works.. most of the time.. some times it won't pop up asking "play here" or "play on fire stick 1" or 2 or 3... etc... and sometimes exiting fixes it, sometimes refreshing does, and sometimes it just won't play.. I guess I expected more from it. But 3 stars bc it's not consistent.

Krystal Price

Doesn't work. Kept saying error casting.

Louis Cook

Utter garbage Doesn't work. Don't waste your time.

Phong Dam

Keep getting error while casting Error while casting

Liveit untiltheend

Good appp You have to pay but it works great.

Steven Mitchell

Works perfect With my HTC and fire stick ?

Joel Diaz

No worth the price I tried using this app with a few sites. Either it loaded the wrong video or it would start then stop. I really wanted this to work.

J. Shreve

Awesome However, I don't like how sometimes it'll drop the video have to reload it and it starts at the beginning. You should be able to control from where it was playing or is playing at in the video you watching on your phone, while its streaming to your TV.

keith horn

Terrible, I think I'm tech savvy and can 9.5 times out of 10 get these things to work Put app on stick and phone synchronised once and then everytime after it failed. Wasted £3 thinking upgrade might sort it but, no .. Russian roulette with your cash ...

V Sco

Firecast works for me It does what I need it to do, when I need it to do, in conjunction with what I need it to work with. Thank you and good deal.

David Justice

It's just okay Doesn't always work properly and have to close app and try try try again. There's gotta be a better way to watch prawn on my tv. Lol

Liza Lara

Works great! I can finally cast my anime from my phone!

Steve Harrison

Absolute frustration When this app works, it is pretty cool. However, each time I use it I find that I have to engage in a ritual to get it to work again. The only two times I've been able to get the paid version to work is by uninstalling and reinstalling both apps (receiver and cast). And I swear by all that's holy if you come back and say "make sure both devices are connected to the same network" I will invent a way to email you a sack of flaming poo. I have one network, both devices operate on it fine.

Edder Orozco

Useless POS brand app Why does it say it supports firestick when it doesn't?!

Ian Pritchett

Half awesome, have fah q When it works is magic. Dies not work with youtube most the time, though. You know, the app you're most likely to need it for. Fix thos and you'll get 5 stars. Reply to me "we'll give your money back and you'll lost that one, and I'll glitter bomb you to oblivion

Simone Jamaica

Works as it should Great app to cast content to my TV. The only issues I have are that sometimes it asks for me to upgrade even though I already have and also sometimes doesn't recognize my firestick. Both resolved with refreshing the page.... So really not issues in the real sense.

Gabrielle Williams

Was Hopeful Very temperamental. More often than not, it shows my Fire Stick but won't cast the video. It will then it won't, won't, won't, won't, will. Evidently, it's not the user since this happens from video to video, not day to day. And all videos I'm attempting to cast are from the same site.

andrew ingram

Wont work with (paid to) Amazon fire tv latest version if i can even get it to pick up my amazon fire tv it will only play video for few seconds PLEASE FIX

Jennifer Ford

Sucks Won't let me cast from apps and when I tried casting a simple youtube video from the browser it says it couldn't do it

Thomas DiSilva

Did not work

Steven Mitchell

Works perfect With my HTC and fire stick ?

Mark O'Connor

Has potential.... but.... finds the Fire Stick twice. Casts for 7-10 seconds then stops. All the while still asking where to cast to. Have to kill the app to try and use it again.

Justin Troupe

Garbage There's no interface just a web browser. It'. unusable.
