That would be great, but I doubt Google would implement it without giving the option for apps to simply block you from casting. Most apps that do not offer a casting option do this deliberately, so while I would love a push from Google I doubt it would do much, and if they go all-in it could piss content creators and providers too much.
For sites that also allow watching the video through the website I use Web Video Cast, which is a great app and it works ok for this use.
Works on iPhone without chrome extension
Install this if on Android then Paste link in.
Video Web Caster. Casts pretty much any video player online to Chromecast, including JW Player which is used by sites like Putlocker or Streamlord. Pro version offers bookmarks, ad block etc... really worth it.
For question 10, I know I often watch videos on a Roku TV by opening the website in Web Video Caster on my Android phone and using that to cast video to the TV (since the RT app can't cast video to the Roku from my phone and Roku doesn't have a browser or RT app allowing it access RT video).
I know of people with abandoned or unsupported platforms (like Xbox) that do the same thing using the same app and I've seen it recommended by other users here on occasion.
Assuming the app that we're talking about here is your "Web Video Cast" app, I'd say that there's a reasonable argument to be made that it's actually violating YouTube's terms of service by allowing you to cast videos from your phone to another device by parsing the page to extract the URL of the video file.
I think in particular section 5.1 (A), (B), (C), possible (E)(iii) depending how ads work in your app, and probably (M) as well could arguably be violated by your app (though it largely depends on exactly how you've implemented various features).
If I were you, I would make the app intent out to the YouTube app directly whenever you get a YouTube URL. That would be the safest approach.
An app called Web Video Caster. Let's you cast videos from the website to many streaming devices. It actually works better than RT's own Chromecast support.
Edit: this is the app on Android, not sure about iOS.
If you have an android and chromecast you can do what I do and just put on a 24 hour live stream on your tv.
Install Web Video Caster
Set up your chromecast on your tv
Using the web caster app, go to www.arconai.tv and choose your show then click the Play button on the navigation bar. This will give you a popup asking to cast it to your chromecast.
It also just works on your computer if you don't want to cast it
Not the best solution obviously, but I'd recommend an app called Web Video Cast for Android that let's you cast videos from the Rooster Teeth website (and any other website) to your Chromecast/Android TV: [link]
If you're on mobile like me, I always use this app to stream to my Chromecast when I can't find a YT link. Just plug in any of the links on here and it will scan the page for videos to cast.
When you are tab casting you are essentially recording your PC screen and sending it over to the Chromecast. When you are playing a video on your mobile and telling it to cast it the actual address of the video is being sent to the Chromecast and the Chromecast plays the video for you. The two video streams could be identical but having to stream it through tab casting has a lot of issues, first it is dependent on your computer speed to capture, encode and send the content over the Chromecast, and second, it is now tied to your computer resolution/screen size which might not be as good as your TV.
You might ask yourself, why doesn't the PC just send the video address? well the Chromecast supports a limited set of video codecs. A lot of mobile videos happen to use codecs the Chromecast understand. Most desktop browser videos are played using flash which the Chromecast does not support. Even when the flash video is something the Chromecast would support (like an mp4), it is being played by the flash player and not by the browser html5 video player so it would be much harder for the browser to know what the actual video address is.
Source: I wrote Web Video Caster which does this.
CBC content including live news is available from their site. Global News live is [link].
Get a Chromecast and casting app like [link]
You can with the 3rd party casting app such as Web Video Cast or Localcast. Open the link with "Play with" in ttv then choose the casting app. it will detect your roku device.
Web Video caster if you're looking for an Android App.
It's wonderful and beautiful. There's ad-supported and you can pay to remove the ads. Paying is worth it.
I have an app called Web Video Caster with this functionality, feel free to try it, and if it doesn't work let me know the website it didn't work with.
If anyone is interested in streaming this game on a Chromescast and owns an android device, I have a working solution going on right now.
This should work for any m3u8 stream. And I'm sure there is probably a similar iPhone app out there somewhere.
If you are on Windows and have VLC media player, copy one of the links above and in VLC hit ctrl + N and then paste the link and hit enter. If you have Windows 10, you can just paste in link into Microsoft Edge and then it should work. Not sure about Mac but you should be able to get VLC and do the same thing.
If you want to watch it on your android phone you can use an app called MX Player, just copy the link and then hit the three dots on the top and then Network Stream and paste the link.
If you have a Chromecast, you can cast a VLC link on your TV with this app. Pretty easy to use as well. [link]
Web video caster for Android is pretty legit. It can can cast quite a few videos / sites / formats that you can't cast from PC. It's basically the only workaround I've come across for certain streams. Check it out
They should. Whenever I encounter a video link that won't work on Chromecast, I use this app and it almost always works in casting whatever video is playing in the chrome browser.
Web Video Caster
I've been having this issue for a few weeks. However, Web Video Cast is such a nice casting app that I don't really bother anymore.
Cast from most sites with this app (putlocker,fmovies etc) been using it since I got my chromecast... Works excellent. Also is a IOS versions of this app if you're in the apple eco system.
try web video cast on your android.
You should be able to browse any site you want. The app tries to dig into the source code of the website and find the direct link to the stream which it then (probably) sends to your chromecast. (Routing through your phone is also an option, as far as I remember)
Haven't tested many sport related sites though.
//Edit: Fullscreen works for me.
Web Video Caster and Server Cast. They will both have it under beta before the end of the weekend. While it is working fine I was in the middle of other changes so I can't release until I finish those.
Use this and also you've got to download the same app in your TV, when you open APPS, scroll until you find Smart View enabled apps
buffstreams is almost always the link to go with. I also use Web Video Cast to access the stream via Reddit so I can cast to my smart TV or Chromecast, depending on which TV I'm using.
Web Video Cast - I cast movies with subtitles to my TV every weekend, so I bought the premium upgrade for 4$ as I use it a lot.
i recommend to use Web Video Cast, it's basically a browser, but can detect any video source on the page and cast it. Not every site offers you chromecast support, while is app works every time.
Not near my Roku right now, but a temp solution you can try is Web Video Cast on Android. Just pull up the Twitch website in its browser, find the stream you want to watch, wait for the video to load and then WVC will pull up a list of captured streams. Just pick one and then select your Roku as the casting target.
It should work, but I can't test it at this moment.
I've also been using Web Video Cast and it works perfectly with chromecast. Just copy the website from chrome to the app and a yellow icon will appear at the top with the video to play
The paid "Twitched" channel for $1 should still be up.
For a free workaround though, you can try Web Video Cast on Android. Just pull up the Twitch website in its browser, find the stream you want to watch, wait for the video to load and then WVC will pull up a list of captured streams. Just pick one and then select your Roku as the casting target.
I use an Android app called Web Video Cast. It's basically a web browser (with ad blocker built-in!) that sends any streaming video to the Roku. The best part, is that it's not a mirroring device. It sends only the streaming video URL to the companion Roku app it installs on the first run. I watched Back to the Future from Fmovies and it only used like 3% battery life during the whole movie since it's not really doing anything after the initial URL push. And while the video is playing, you can use the app on your phone as a remote control to pause, rewind, ffw, etc. It's incredible magic, and basically adds full Chromecast-like functionality to Roku. The dev is active here, too.
Here's how to do it with an android phone:
Download this app:
Once installed, open and navigate to page of the video. For the red bulls game: [link]
Let the ad before the stream play through and dismiss any options to cast until after the ad is finished.
Once the game stream is loaded select the yellow play button at the top. It will give you a few options for streams, I think that's the different definition qualities, I had good luck with the bottom one.
That should do it. Let me know if this isn't clear enough, I'm typing this on mobile so sorry about any mistakes.
Yahoo pls get your shit together.
Are you casting from a phone or computer?
If from computer, select the "Cast tab" option on the dropdown of the chromecast icon on your Chrome browser. The Clappr error seems to happen when you click on the Chromecast icons that are sometimes integrated into the bottom of the embedded players on the websites. Don't click on those icons, as they don't seem to work for some strange reason. Instead, always click on the Chromecast icon located at the top of your Chrome browser tab and use the cast tab option.
If from phone, download any one of those 3rd party casting apps. I use this one:
These apps have browsers built into the app so you can navigate to any of the streaming sites on the web. Then when you hit the Chromecast icon from within that app's browser, it'll cast fine. I kept trying to cast from my phone using the Chrome mobile browser, but it always gave me the Clappr error. Then one day it struck me that there's probably dedicated apps just for this purpose for phones, so I randomly searched the Play Store and found that one listed above. There's many other 3rd party casting apps available in the store too, but the one above has the best rating I believe.
Don't know of any app but watchcartoonsonline.eu has all the cartoons you mentioned.
If you want to be able to send them through ChromeCast, try Web Video Caster.
Better yet, I use /r/soccerstreams links and cast with Web Video Caster - [link]
And yes, you can use your phone wire casting, but not while screen mirroring.
If yesmovies.to is not blocked by your ISP you can cast those videos from your phone to your Chromecast using Web Video Caster.
I was using funimation with chromecast for about a month straight til yesterday then today i just get a black screen saying <host id error message> streaming in the app works fine but trying to cast it straight to tv won't work for me either
Edit: Found a work around from a different thread here on reddit from a year ago, you can download this app and login to funimation site and cast that way
Chrome doesn't show the cast button for all videos. Anyways, I have an app with the same functionality and you are welcome to try it [link]
Let me know if you have any issues.
Good question. It doesn't have integrated Chromecast support but if you want to cast from your phone I think you should be able to do so with the help of Web Video Cast(er).
EDIT: I just tried casting from my tablet to the BubbleUPnP server on my Android tv-box and that works great. It even casts the subtitles.
Solarmovie.sc (not to be confused with the other solarmovie sites out there) is my favorite site for streaming movies and TV series. It has a very big catalog, great sorting options, descriptions, trailers, IMDb ratings, optional integrated English subtitles (synced) and no ads.
It works great on PC and mobile and you can cast its content to your smart TV or Chromecast using Web Video Caster for Android.
Just open Web Video Caster, pair it to your smart TV/Chromecast and open solarmovie.sc in its built-in browser. Start a video to cast it to your TV, including subtitles!
You go to tnf.twitter.com within the app's browser. You hit the chromecast button at the top right to connect. You hit the "scan for video" button and it finds the source. You then just press play. It sends the link directly to chromecast so it's as if it has native chromecast support. It does not transcode nor funnel it through the phone unless you are having connection issues.
Happens to me too, using web video caster in place of it temporarily.
Google Play Link
Waiting for the feature to come back could take years.
I use this it's alright nothing I've seen is better than what the normal way to do it was. Hopefully they get their shit together. :D
If you have chromecast, download the app web video caster navigate to this page on your phone and open with that app.
If you are on Android Web Video Caster can chromecast the video OR be used to watch it full screen on your device if your browser doesn't want to cooperate
Web Video Caster was made for this. Install and then when you have nfl2go pulled up in browser just share to and Web video Caster will be an option. [link]
Posted this on one of ur other threads. Its a really good tool for Chromecast users though. You can use this app called Web Video Caster to cast the videos/games directly from ur phone to ur Chromecast. Of course a full screen cast works but u have to the video playing full screen on ur device. Using this app is like using Netflix. It will cast the game to your Chromecast in the background on ur device. And u can feel free to use ur device to do other things. I can confirm it worked. And it's easy, click the link, click open in browser, then select the web video Caster app.. I'm live streaming the NFL network right now onto my 45inch TV in HD using OP's new NFL network link. Try it out on tonights game. It's legit, over 500k downloads. [link]
Here's a cool trick I just discovered for Android users. You can use this app called Web Video Caster to cast the videos/games directly from ur phone to ur Chromecast. Of course a full screen cast works but u have to the video playing full screen on ur device. Using this app is like using Netflix. It will cast the game to your Chromecast in the background on ur device. And u can feel free to use ur device to do other things. I can confirm it worked. Try it out on tonights game. It's legit, over 500k downloads. [link]
USA website doesn't support Chromecast. You can cast the screen in Chrome or from your phone.
I cast with my phone using Web Video Caster - [link]
There are apps for Android to stream any video content on a webpage to your chromecast. Can't remember the name but some googling or searching on the play store will find it for sure.
Edit: Found it; [link], check out the alternatives too.
If you install Grow Box and uninstall MX Player files can be downloaded with Web Video Caster - [link]
I use WVC to Chromecast but you can also click "Options" when the stream starts and select "Download." Works great for me running 3.8.8 Showbox for all files.
Here's more from the WVC dev - [link]
Not sure if you have Android but you can use this app to cast sites to your TV.
With that and locast I been able to ditch cable and watch my football games.
www.twitch.tv/homearoo2020 is the link!
Here's an app that let's you stream the link from your iPhone to your roku
[link] here's an app that let's your roku pick up the twitch stream
Heres the Android version : [link]
This annoys me so much and is actually why I'm on this sub today, I understand that most YouTube videos now are 1080 60fps but I feel like Gen 1 Chromecasts should be told to play a lower quality. Right now watching YouTube is an absolutely miserable experience
A quick workaround that I've been using is to share the YouTube video to the Android app Web Video Cast, it seems to fix the issue
See if they have this app on the store Web Video Caster
If they do, you're in luck. I use that app to cast almost everything from anywhere to my chromecast. I paid for the premium for the adblocking features. You need it on some of these websites. I use it everyday since I have internet only.
I don't think so but try using this app Web Video Cast, it's fantastic. Use the menu to select phone files instead of the web
Chromecast = you must always use your phone or computer to cast from. It does not have a remote and built in apps. Fire TV stick, you have to use a special browser to cast to it if you are not using an app. I use a casting browser on my android phone, it can cast to chromecast, roku, or fire tv. I prefer Roku at this point because they no longer make the best Fire TV (the Gen 2 4k Box). The sticks are a little under powered.
This is the casting browser I use, it supports lots of devices.
If you have android than you can easily stream any video on any website with this app to Roku Stick. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instantbits.cast.webvideo
What website are you trying to cast from? Not all sites will offer the cast option for their content.
Alternatively try this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instantbits.cast.webvideo
> web video caster
Are you talking about this app ? : web video caster ([link])
I use it for other sites but this one has the same issue the others have : displays the site in desktop mode, plays the ad, then nothing.
I found a solution for android!
I am replying again just in case you looked at the first comment and won't see an edit.
I just tried out 3-4 different solutions and <strong>'Web Video Cast'</strong> worked amazingly. you will have to log into the site through their browser, but the three different videos I tried loaded very quickly, and at high quality so you should be A-OK with that.
The premium costs $3 to remove ads, but really that is worth it if you want to use a Roku. I don't see them releasing a Roku app anytime soon.
Try this if u have android [link].
Or you can use this to instantly stream anime if u have myanimelist [link]
Not a perfect fix, but a workaround: I use WebVideoCaster to cast other twitch streams to my TV. It drops occasionally, but that's because my TV is miles from the router.
I use Web Video Cast to do something similar. It allows you to open the video in an external player in lieu of casting to another device.
This is essentially a Chromecast Browser. MOST things that will play in a browser will cast through this app. Just load the site up in the app and it's pretty self explanatory.
This has gotten me to be able to stream tons of things that otherwise wouldn't work on the site itself.
Do you have any android phone or tablet? If you do, Install Web video cast on it. It will detect the videos embedded in the web page and you can just cast the video to the chromecast.
I browse it (nbastreams) with my android phone using Video Web Caster (alt android browser, with ad blocking), that has built in support to FLING to AFTV directly. No app on AFTV required.
I use Web Video Cast and edit the playercorefactory file to play videos from any provider. Use this link, third question from the bottom.
Okay so I'm having the same problem on Android, but I found a work around. If you have the time, and are using android. First you will need Web Video Caster app Then follow the steps in this photo album I made [link]
If you have the videos on an Android I highly recommend Web Video Caster. You can use local subtites or have it logged into a open subtitles account and it will just find them for you. As someone else pointed out LocalCast is also a good option on Android but it doesn't have the option for grabbing them from Open Subtitles.
No, as far as I know there isn't any Google Cast receiver that you can install on anything on your own. However Kodi can receive videos over DLNA and many apps like mine (Web Video Caster) will cast to it without issues.
I was wondering the same, but most of the streams on here are Flash-based. As far as I can tell, this new Chromecast functionality only works with HTML 5 videos. In fact some of the streams here are HTML 5 videos, but they are so deeply embedded in in markup, including iframes, within the HTML source, that Chrome can't pick it up. I have in the past gone in with my HTML inspector in my browser just to grab the the HTML 5 video, copied it out and pasted into a separate browser, just to get rid of all markup and ads and stuff, but it's tedious, and I'm a web developer.
So the short answer is no, this new Chrome + Chromecast feature doesn't really change things for us. It applies to services like Vimeo or Amazon Video which render clean HTML 5 video but do not provide native Chromecast ability (usually for business reasons, because Google is their competitor).
Actually, I think maybe CBC streams from the CBC website may now be Chromecast-able through this added functionality (haven't tested) but those streams are already Chromecast-able through the CBC Android app.
Also there are some cases where people post clean links to native video streams -- usually accompanied with "use VLC". This would need confirming, but if you can open those in Chrome, then you may be able to cast those. There's also an Android app ([link]) which works great for those. The hardest part is entering the link.
Lastly I would add that some people in this thread seem to be getting getting this new functionality mixed up with tab casting, which has been around in Chrome for a long time. As OWLsRCool2 notes, this is about having your Chromecast stream directly, not mirroring a tab on your browser (which has too much latency for hockey, though I imagine it would be not bad for something like baseball).
WebOS has dlna and also a their own media receiver app that can play videos. You can use it with most apps that support dlna or apps like mine ([link]) that support their media receiver. It just won't work with apps that exclusively support chromecast.
Shameless self promoting warning!
If you have an android device and a website with live news then I have an app that can cast live streams [link]
Since it hasn't been mentioned yet, you might want to check out this app:
Web Video Cast
You enter the URL of the website that's hosting the stream you want to cast, the app searches for videos on the website and then gives you the option to cast them.
I've had issues with app not locating videos on certain sites, but for the most part it has worked well for me.
I have just updated the beta of my app ([link]) to support the Apple TV 4th gen. It should let you cast YouTube videos if that is what you want to cast.
someone else just asked about chromecast and /u/thegreatsilence gave this answer: Not directly, you can screen cast or you can try using web video caster [link]
Web Video Caster can search for subtitles and cast them along with the video.
Unlike LocalCast it also supports casting subtitles to DLNA devices.
This one has intrigue. I see where, as a reply to a review, the developer offered the person a chance at a beta version also. Not sure about its full capabilities. Unfortunately I forgot to grab the chromecast before I left town.
These streams are great, you might want to suggest that Android users use Web Video Cast to send to Chromecast/FireTV/etc
If you have an android phone (not fire phone) you can give my browser a try [link]
It does not support flash but a lot of sites use html5 videos nowadays. Feel free to pm me for support or just email me.
WVC works for some live streams but it depends on the site and the encoding. Best you can do is try. I've been able to stream some La Liga games with WVC.
I have a Moto E which doesn't correctly screen cast. Only does audio, no video
Haven't tried with march madness streams, but Web video Caster can stream live:
Would have to find a web stream URL to send, not from the NCAA app.
Sorry, didn't realize you said phone. I use this; it works with almost all video sites, including Project free tv: [link]
I had same problem. There's something on the script of the link that doesn't allow the download. MX Player can deal with the script which is why it's now mandatory.
I use Web Video Caster to download as well as cast to my tv. Works great with the Growbox workaround. - [link]
Must install WVC and Growbox. It will pop up as one of your player options. When WVC opens, click "options" then "download."
Pain in the ass... But it is what it is since the hosting of the videos changed a few weeks ago
Web Video Caster lets you stream video from the browser to your Chromecast (provided that it's in the right format).
here's a possible solution:
1.a) install Web Video Caster ([link])
1.b) Install same app on TV (if not using a CC)
start mentioned app on smartphone and go to browser
log in to ATV+
start desired film or series' episode
wait till the app recognizes the stream and then cast it to your CC/TV
edit: reddit fucked up my listing
You can try web video caster [link]
Havent tried it with AppleTV but it works great with other streaming sites to cast to firetv and chromecast.
Amazon removed the twitch app from Roku a couple of years ago. If you want to use twitch on Roku you need to use a 3rd party app to cast it from your phone. A chromecast might work too. Personally I use Web Video Caster.
If you are on Android you can try this app. It's called web video caster. It will allow you to cast local media in addition to media online.. basically anything with a url. It will allow you to play the audio locally on your phone while playing the video on the tv. There are some settings to get the audio sync correct you might want to try fiddling with them a bit to get it right. Also I think I remember it being a paid app but it is completely worth it. It won't let you use your headphones directly with the Chromecast per se but at least you will be able to use them with your phone while watching the tv. I don't have a Roku but I imagine this might be similar to the private audio mode or whatever it's called. Here's a link to the play store. Hope you can benefit from this. [link]
I haven't used it on Stardom site lately but this app is really good to create Chromecast links of media in your phone so you can watch on the tv. The full version is really inexpensive also
If you still looking for THE best app for casting is this one
I try it free at first (I use a Fire HD 8 7th gen) to cast movies with Stremio to my smart TV (old Samsung) I bought the app and am using it like a year and a half, works awesome, plus the support is great and fast.
Definitely check it out.
Just use an app called web video cast from the google play store. It's casting works with the companion app for smart TVs and/or legacy casting on Roku. I only use teatv to find the links.
It's basically a web browser with built in casting and ad blocker
If you bought the new Chromecast with Google TV, then I assume that you know you can pair Bluetooth headphones with it. So I won’t go over that.
But if all you want is the sound from your cast to be routed to your phone, then use Web Video Cast. Of course, this app only works for casting websites.
For streaming to my tv I have gone through quite a few apps and for a while now I've settled on one app.
[link] this app has been my go to for years now. You can specify what you want it to look for. Usually it finds my tv fast (I have an lg and a vizio). Has a nice amount of controls and on some tv stores it has any app that will make connection even easier.
Do you want to just cast a video from your browser or do you want to cast your browser entirely? Because casting your browser just to play a video is not good for the performance of the Chromecast. If you just want to cast the video I'd suggest using an app like Web Video Caster. It directly casts the video from it's server without casting the website. Hope it helps.
FYI, casting is designed so that the Chromecast is playing the media directly from the provider, not your phone. So there's no audio for your phone to play.
There are some apps that have janky workarounds, like loading the stream on the phone and then forwarding the video to the Chromecast, but it's unreliable. I think Web Video Caster can do this, but I've never tried it myself.
Really, a better solution would be to get the new Chromecast with Google TV and then pair bluetooth headphones directly to it since it supports Bluetooth.
I'm still searching for the best app, but I did see that Web Video Cast does support subtitles during my testing. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instantbits.cast.webvideo&hl=en_US&gl=US
I know it's not open source but makes all that you're requesting.
If I find something open source I'll let you know
I've never tried, but I feel this might work.
You can share the audio, from whatever app you are using, and then select Web Video Caster app. Which then has a casting functionality. Works for both video and audio.
It also works for apps that don't have inbuilt casting but sharing ability.

For the sake of installing an app, worth a shot!
Report back if its a suitable solution, as this is a question I have when I get around to doing the full degoogle
^A ^little ^PSA... ^Pro ^Sport ^users ^on ^Kodi, ^the ^xrxs ^links ^are ^now ^working ^again. ^The ^latest ^update ^to ^the ^add-on ^fixed ^the ^cookie ^problem. ^Force ^an ^update ^if ^you ^haven't ^already ^gotten ^it. ^(PS, this has nothing to do with the CBC stream. Just letting you know in case you want a different feed and use Kodi Pro Sport. Those who don't use Kodi, please disregard this message)
^Also, ^the ^Hawks/Blues ^CBC ^stream ^was ^[probably] ^a ^bit ^overloaded ^last ^time. ^If ^the ^Sportsnet ^feed ^is ^available, ^I'll ^post ^that ^too.
Dropped the CBC feed down to 480p as the link had been giving users problems out of my control. Want 720p? Use the Sportsnet link instead.
~~CBC Direct m3u8~~ | 720p HD | No Geo-Block | No VPN Needed
Play on Tablet, Mobile, Edge, VLC (or Ace Player if you have problems), MX Player, Xbox One etc.
Kodi Pro Sport users, choose the 'M3U8 stream' link in the game streams list.
Roku users can view the stream with channel PEAR.
Chromecasters... copy the m3u8 link from above then go here. Paste the link you copied into the input box, click the green 'Play' button and then cast the tab. If that doesn't work, Android users can download the Web Video Cast app and use that to stream to Chromecast instead.
Apple TV users, open the link in Safari on your computer and then click on the AirPlay icon. Your Apple TV will use the stream source directly and get full quality/stability, instead of casting from or mirroring your computer.
Note 1: I am aware of some users having issues with stream quality in VLC. The link is an adaptive bitrate m3u8 which, in simple terms means it will choose the best quality based on your connection speed at the time and is the best option for most of us. I understand that sometimes when VLC chooses a bitrate, it sticks and doesn't use the better quality one when available. A couple users have mailed me and said that they fixed the issue by just stopping the stream and then hitting the play button again but if that doesn't work, you can replace the master.m3u8 part in the link url with index_2500_av-b.m3u8. That will bypass the adaptive part and stream the 720p version directly. (Please make sure your connection is fast enough.)
Note 2 (Important): One thing I ask of you is... PLEASE do not post any links from the master.m3u8 file in the thread. I have explained the process of how to get the 720p stream (Note: above) for those having problems. Posting more m3u8 files from the same source means it clogs up the list for the Pro Sport users on Kodi. If you're around and you see someone comment on having VLC quality issues, please point them to 'Note 1' in this post or, if you want to do so, PM them the link but try and keep the links for the m3u8's out of the thread.
^EDIT: ^CBC ^fixed ^their ^web ^player ^page. ^Link ^updated. ^No ^Sportsnet ^feed ^tonight... ^they're ^showing ^the ^Baseball.

This is one of the greatest apps ever built. [link] The developers are amazing
Web Video Cast has always been my go to - [link]
Can do streams of live sports, too.
If you have an Android device, use Web Video Cast

If you are casting videos stored on your phone or the web yes.
I use Web Video Caster, the free version do the job perfectly, and the pro version totally worth it.
I prefer Web Video Caster.
Try web video caster [link]
I was able to use this Android app to stream .m3u8 games just fine.
You can try Web Video Cast instead. I've yet to have issues with it.

Use this app for when certainly sites won't give you a Chromecast option. Works like a charm.
This will do the trick
/r/nflstreams + web video caster
I use r/soccerstreams with [link]
He means the app, which I found can work better compared to trying to cast from Chrome: [link]
My app would let you cast a browser video from the phone but sorry I don't have a PC chrome extension yet.
Lots of chromecast apps let you sync subtitles while casting, I of course recommend mine [link]
Web Video Caster > Localcast
Have you tried Web Video Caster?
Figured but wasn't certain ;)
Android or desktop?
If Android, use Web Video Caster - [link]
I've had luck sending live streams [YT and others] through Web Video Caster - [link]
Bonus: use Web Video Cast to send to Chromecast/Roku/FireTV/Xbox/Smart TVs
Just download web video caster ( a must for Chromecast users) and open [link]
Web Video Cast might be what you are looking for
Happens from time to time so I just use Web Video Caster.
Andriod - [link]
You can use this on android [link] and play videos from movietube.cc etc.
Yes, for example in a previous event you would get the .m3u8 url - and use a Chrome extension like CastBuddy then copy and paste the url into the box where it says: "Enter a URL below to start playing it on Chromecast:". Then when you cast it to the tv it should start playing. Worked for me for the last few live events.
Edit: can't seem to get it working with castbuddy, but it works fine with web video caster - [link]
I use those sites but cast to my tv from my phone with this app
Web video cast from playstore, it supports many streaming devices.
Here is the link: [link]
Install this app. It has an browser and it can cast almost every video from a website. Pick your own porn site 👍
I am using this app personally and it works great.
Web video caster
It's not an Android app, but sndcpy sends audio over USB. Also check out scrcpy.
If it must be an app it seems Web Video Cast (free version) can be used. This app does not use USB. Open the app, click the Cast icon, select "Web Browser receiver", go to "http://cast2tv.io" on a PC browser, enter the code provided by the app, open the sidebar in the app and select "Phone files", navigate to the file you want to play, and click it. You may also need to click play (▶) in your PC browser.
Note that the PC browser needs to support the format of the file you want to play - for example, casting an .mkv file won't work in Firefox, but it will in Chrome.
Lastly there seems to Bluetooth solutions too, but I haven't looked into this.
No worries I got you
If you have an Android device, use the app "WEB VIDEO CASTER". It is basically a browser that will stream any video on the website to your chromecast. I used it with sportsurge all the time, instead of plugging in my laptop to the TV.
I tried it last night, using the free content on F1TV.com and it worked fine. So until F1 updates the app to be compatible with Chromecast, you can just use this app as a browser that is compatible with chromecast to watch.
Try using this to cast to your xbox, it's what I used to cast things like showbox
Are you on android? I use this to watch on my chrome cast [link]
For anyone looking for a similar Android solution, found this through a post about Twitched in /r/roku:
Worked for me.
Yes you can on Android I use this app...
Oh but you can...I use Web Video Cast and I was able to watch the Twitter show on my Home Hub using the Periscope link.
Yes, nothing to do with RT.
This is the Android app. [link]
Use any web cast and you can play any video on chromecast or chromecast build-in
Va sur le site web avec cette app : [link]
Ça te permet d'envoyer le vidéo au Chromecast même si le site est pas configuré pour.
I would be curious to know if they work with my app but I've had very bad luck with vimeo private videos.
Puedes usar [link]
If you have an android phone you can use my browser (Web Video Caster) to send videos to the Fire TV.
If you use my app (Web Video Caster) to cast then there is an option to fix subtitle timing.
kissanime/kisscartoon cast natively through apps like Web Video Caster or, if you log in, it gives direct google drive .mp4 links that should cast right out of chrome.
I use Web Video Caster. That still works for me.
Check Web Vídeo Cast, for me it works on most of the streams.
The direct link is working for me.
I use this app: [link]
If you have an Android, try out Web Video Cast
Install Web Video Caster then add the link to that.
Yeah chromecast doesn't work with his links.
You have to put the link into Web Video Caster and cast from that.
If you have a Chromecast, you can cast a VLC link on your TV with this app.
Works really well for me.
This has worked well for me:
It supports amazon's fling
Edit: the Dev has another app called Server Cast too for local playback
Or if you installed Kodi:
Mobile Device - Yatse to Kodi works
For Computer - play to Kodi
you can try WebVideoCaster
I have found this to be very helpful for casting web content from streaming services like couchtuner.
I use this app to cast the games from this to my tv
Use this to cast it to your TV if you have an Android phone.
use this Link [link]
Sure. Try downloading this app [link]
It works fine for me.
This app allowed my to stream from my phone to the firestick lite. (Web Video Caster)
es esta app?
La voy a usar para ver partidos a los que no tengo subscripción
Find yourself a good free streaming site and use this app to cast its content to your TV.
Use this app [link]
Embedded vimeo vids are usually a pain to share. If you want to chromecast from an android, you can use this
Web video cast
Try this one
[link] seems to have minimal ads,if you have a smart TV it will work for that as well. and yeah VLC will play anything you throw at it but it's a little bit more glitchy than that
You can use the app Web Video Caster . I always use it to stream anime on my TV, and if you have a good internet connection or your TV supports different video formats it works with pretty much any website. I normally use 9anime and 4anime, they work just fine for me.
Hey, check out Web Video Caster. It worked with my TV.
Personally I prefer Web Video Cast since it's on Android and iOS.
Use Web Video Caster
I used this app to cast videos from webpages it works well enough!
On Android use Web Video Cast to cast to the fire stick.
This is what I've been using on my Roku. Pretty flawless.
this is what you are looking for.
I just use Web Video Cast
This is so good, I actually paid for the premium version. Will cast web streams and local files. Has support for dlna, webOS, fire etc etc. Can't recommend this more.
I use this app called Web video caster via this app
Imo the best one is Web Video Cast
Made by /u/instantbitsapps.
YouTube automatically adjusts quality on Chromecast. I know it's a big buggy but you can try this app that I use to play in survive specific quality
I hate this. That's why I use Web Video Cast , which allows you to select quality
Yea saw that in the sc, it makes sense to assume it wont work for live streams. I am not sure why i didnt try this before, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instantbits.cast.webvideo&hl=en seems to work in casting it from mobile phones as well. Need to test this for the live events now.
Web video caster:
i am using this web browser and cast almost any web video
try this app
Using a phone browser to cast is always a bit tricky. Maybe try using this app. It sometimes works better then chrome
If you're wanting to cast web based videos I'm a fan of the Web Video Cast android app, which has a roku companion app.
If you're talking about casting your actual screen you'll need to look into your specific device and check that it's compatible with Miracast, which is the standard roku supports.
u/DriveByRandominfo gave a solution that would redirect the sound coming from the chromecast to a Bluetooth transmitter that you can pair to a bluetooth device and it's the ultimate solution. There are a few apps out there that can play local media while giving you the option to use your phone as the sound source. There's also Web Video Caster that does it for most streaming websites excluding major ones.
I use these two apps depending on my needs to cast videos from shady websites to the Chromecast.
Both of them work great.
There's no software on PC/mac that does the same thing
I use an app called Web Video Cast on my Android phone. It works with Chromecast and/or smart TVs that support DLNA. The free version has ads and other limitations but you could at least test it out. I've never come across a video on the web that it wouldn't cast.
If you want to stream mainly netflix, Chromecast is the cheapest and most reliable way to do it. You said you plan on getting a 4k TV soon, I think the $ saved from the chromecast will serve you well on that TV.
My former TV didn't have netflix either. Trust me, Chromecast Ultra is an extremely powerful streaming device. It only allows to cast from a PC/Phone onto the TV, unlike stuff like Roku which gives you limited channels for free. However, Chromecast is litterly all you need.
Netlfix, youtube, and videos from the internet can all be wirelessly viewed in 4k with the $40 attachment. Download this onto your phone though if you want to cast things that are not the standard streaming platforms:
For sure! I think i might put the name wrong but here ya go [link]
Oh use this app to Chromecast from Android: Use this app this works for all those websites where it is only possible for you to stream. It works like a charm
I used Web Video Cast and anYme (/r/anYme) to stream to my roku tv.
If you have an android device, cast any content on hdfy through this app [link]
And that will bypass any account you have to create with them and there hasn't been any watch time limits as long as I've been using it either. Just use the app and Google hdfy and hit the first link to get to the site.
If on android, Web Video Caster
Use the browser to go to the channel you want to watch, let the video load, select stream from orange button. It is kinda jank, but stable. I can't even cast to my TV from the official Twitch app without constant stuttering.
Update: To save ppl some extra clicks: Solution above is dead, but they link to another Reddit thread where someone suggested Web Video Cast (Play Store) / (iOS version), which is working great for me!
Web Video Cast seems to work. Just use it's browser to login to Lynda.com and load a video through it.
You could use web video caster to open them instead of the built in player. Works with most videos.
I have a phone app (Web Video Caster) for casting video to your TV from the browser. If anyone has any questions feel free to message me. Supports Roku, Chromecast, most Smart TVs, Apple TV, Fire TV.
Web Video Caster on Android
Connect the app to Roku, navigate to the website with the hosted video and it should pick up any videos embedded in the page. Then you can cast to Roku.
I have used it for years and it works about 95% of the time.
For casting to Chromecast, try using Web Video Cast or BubbleUpnP. A much better casting experience.
I use two casting apps and never having issues watching whatever I want through Chromecast. Web Video Cast and BubbleUpnP. BubbleUpnP pretty much casts everything to Chromecast as there's an option in Settings where it will transcode on the fly to a format that will play through Chromecast.
However, I mainly use Web Video Cast because I find it a little smoother, but it doesn't play everything. With Chromecast, it's not that it doesn't play .mkv files but it doesn't play x265 video or 5.1/7.1 audio encoded files natively. Stick to selecting x264 files with AAC audio and you can play whatever show or movie with Web Video Cast. Otherwise, grab BubbleUpnP which will transcode the x265 or 5.1 files.
Yes get Web Video Cast from the Play store. It supports firesticks.
If you're on Android, try Web Video Cast.
It lets you cast almost any video that can be played in a browser.
Web Video Caster might work (I've only tested it with Roku).
Cool good to know. I went to using the Web Video Cast app on both my phone and Fire TV and it works great. You just install the app on both devices and it connects up easy. No issues. I was able to watch 3 hours straight with no issues.
I use Web Video Cast for Android, though usually for streaming non-YT videos.
I recall it saying it casts using Amazon Fling (FireTV casting protocol)... but I can't seem to find reference to that anymore.
There's also this older AFTV article.
Or, as DontPmMeHentai mentions, you can use FireTV's built-in mirroring.
Web Video Cast works works for 95% of the time, though I never tried with locally stored media.
Aside from the audio issues, display mirroring can be a bit choppy and burns though battery quite quickly. If the site you're using doesn't offer casting on their embedded player, I would use Web Video Caster or a comparable app. These apps detect the video source that the web page is using and allow you to cast it to Chromecast/AndroidTV.
actually, u can make the sound coming out from ur phone using that app
there will be some latency, but if u have good internet, u will be ok
> really weird / unknown user-agent
9anime probably doesn't like "Webkit based browser on iOS 12.4" (from whatismybrowser) then.
> I don't believe there is any way around this
Actually, there is (assuming OP's using this app). u/Wilks_, there's an option to change the user agent. I tried with the Android 7.1.1 one and it worked.
Edit: make sure to set it as the default.
This app and a chromecast.
Only free place for the dub is Viz's website.
They don't have a Roku channel, but you can use Web Video Cast on Android to send the video to your Roku.
Web Video Caster on Android is the easiest way.
If you want a native app, then there isn't any simple solution.
An Emby server can stream URLs by making a text file, pasting the URL, save, and then change the file extension to .strm to finish. Make a new Library in Emby, set its type as "Home Videos & Photos", and set the location where you've saved the STRM file. Let Emby scan for media and it sould show up in the server ready to stream.
I use a Chromecast and cast using Web Video Cast or BubbleUpnP ...Both of which will play subtitles. You just have to select your stream and then use the subtitle search from within either app and download them separately. And no need to leave your screen on like you do with screen mirroring.
Yes, correct. In TvZion once you choose the link, instead of hitting the "Play" button, you would hit the "Play with" or "Share to" buttons and choosing Web Video Cast or BubbleUpnP.
It does not work just as well.
The screen is recorded and sent to the Chromecast. There's quality loss, the aspect ratio of the phone will likely not match your TV, the phone and its screen needs to be turned on the whole time. It's not a good solution at all.
A better workaround would be to use an app like Web Video Caster ([link]) which has proper cast support.
You can try [link]
You'll have to sign in to Facebook on it, but it should work.
Wasn't exactly correct on the name, here's the link: [link]
Not sure how it'll work with subtitles as I don't use them usually
TvZion didn't cast subtitles well, but you can usually download and play them separately. I personally use Web Video Cast x264 videos and ocassionally BubbleUpnP for the h265 videos that Chromecast won't play sound for. I've also previously used Localcast as Norman05 stated.
Web video caster
Really like this app, usually my go to streaming app
Yes, you can change subs while watching. [link]
I use this app to cast file or web page from my phone to my chromecast.
Web Video Caster should work, though it's an app for your phone, not one that goes on the roku
Ok, that's dumb. Buy a cheap Firestick if you want a web browser on your TV. Or download Web Video Caster from the Play Store to send random web videos to your Roku.
Easier alternative is to download Web video cast
For anyone with a Chromecast and using their Android device, this player doesn't have Chromecast ability but install Web Video Cast from Play Store and open the muchoflix link in it.
What you want is webvideocaster. It works with a lot of video apps such as beetv and teatv as long as you can select an external player. Including some of the live tv apps that let you use an external player.
It also works with videos on websites or videos in your device.
I know it works to cast to my Samsung un50ku6300 series TV. no Chromecast needed. I tried localcast but it doesn't work very good when it does work.
After months and months of searching webvideocaster is the only app that i found that works decent. It cast to my TV or my Fire TV box.
It shouldn't be hard to find online although the version i seen here on reddit is a little outdated. Some bugs have been fixed and it works a little better now.
Here is the official link. [link]
What you want is the mod to remove the horrible ads. I seem to have version 4.5.8_build_1924-mod. There is a newer version now but i am too tired to update. It shouldn't be hard to find just make sure you scan for viruses with websites like virus total before you install it.
I have it on my own cloud drive but don't want to share my cloud drive as it has important stuff on it and i don't want to lose my accounts. Mainly that one is shared with family.
If someone knows of a different file host that i can use as a temp i could just upload there. What is the best to use as a throw away or an upload and forget about it file host?
It may not be a legitimate source but there is a subreddit that is dedicated to NFL streams. A lot of them can be casted to you TV. I like to use Web Video Cast for playing most website videos to Cast targets:
Do you happen to have an android device? There is a really good app called Web Video Cast that allows you to cast the video from web streams to the fire tv
There is probably a Firefox or Chrome extension that does something similar but I have not sought it out because web video cast works so well
I've been meaning to try sideloading Kiwi Browser which is based on chromium and can load extensions like UBO from Google but have not had a chance yet. You may need Mouse Toggle for Fire TV to control it
Try this app, it works for me to my roku.
Con esta app pude mandar al Chromecast los vídeos de la página, funciona para cualquier reproductor que no deje enviar el vídeo
La versión gratis tiene ads pero no afectan el vídeo porcia
you can use web video caster and / or i web tv both have android/iphone apps that sync with a app on the roku. i use web video on my android to stream dubbed anime.
web video android app
web video iphone app
web video roku app
iwebtv iphone app
iwebtv roku app
And then also the Web Video Cast Channel onto you Roku.
You sure do! [link]
Got it to work with This app, which is the first app I tried, so others might work too...
I have pixel 2, what router do you have?
If you use a modern casting browser, any of those will work. This example does online and local [link]
I use that app to watch web site videos on Roku, Firestick and Chromecast.. just depends which room I am in, as we have all of them. Normally I do Chromecast (Vizo tv with it built in) but the others work as well. T
I use web video caster on my phone. Almost all video streaming sites works with it.
If you need the same functionality from chrome (desktop), try PlayTo for Chromecast™ extention. Be warned that, I haven't tried this one yet.
Web Video Cast isn't intensive. It just finds the identifies the video and has the xbox stream from the internet. It isn't casting your phone's screen.
Web Video Caster: [link]
Edit: you could give YouTube Vanced a try as well, the developers have a subreddit here
Il y a une app qui permet de caster pas mal n'importe quel vidéo que tu trouves sur le web : [link]
You can do this with Web video cast. Use the browser to go on YouTube and hit the Play icon on the video you want to watch. Wait for the list of videos to find the size you want, press on the video, and use Open With to choose MX Player.
You won't get anything higher than 720 though
Only options you have are Web Video Cast, Server Cast, or TVCast, all of these do the same thing except the last one you can give it an EPG link (doesn't show up on the Roku, it's only on the device you install it on). I have a Roku Stick on a TV in my workout room, since it's not used as a dedicated IPTV device these apps work well enough to watch something.
Use [link] to Cast, if you have an Android device
try this one [link]
If you have an Android phone or tablet then you should be able to use this app to cast to your TV.
Usa "Web Video Cast" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instantbits.cast.webvideo&hl=it in versione premium.
È un browser che ti permette di streammare qualunque video accessibile su internet ma anche quelli presenti in locale (quindi video o film scaricati sul cell). Ti permette inoltre di salvare i video dei vari siti, anche quelli in streaming.
Facile da usare, con adblocker integrato, diversi settaggi disponibili.
Penso sia la migliore in assoluto.
Why is location permission required? I see other permissions explained (which is great to see, thanks!) on the app store description, but location isn't there.
I'm assuming this is the app: [link]
Web video caster is by far the best app I've tried for this. It has so much value.
It has an in app browser for you to cast any video on the site to the chromecast and also plays local files on the chromecast. It also has options for finding subtitles in app.... It's perfect!
I use Web Video Caster
Youtube app in Chromecast sucks, no playback speed setting, no quality setting...
That's why anyone that cares about this stuff can use a web browser that crawls each web for audio/video files embedded on a player and allows you to send them to your Chromecast at any resolution/change the playback speed...
Is the main android app that does this.
I'm sure there are multiple iOS alternatives
Toss those suckers into this chromecast browser. Works like a charm for me and solves mostly any other wonky sites as well.
>You can cast almost any video on the web to the fire tv using something like Web Video Cast but it doesn't work at all like Google Cast
Yeah, What is the difference.. that is what I want to know..
Currently what I have in mind is-
Chromecast - Only Screen Cast
Fire TV stick - Fire TV OS for streaming services + Screen Cast
Above makes Fire TV a better proposition.. I want to know where does fire tv lack and how?
If all you want to do is use Google cast, get the chromecast
You can cast your screen to the fire tvs using Miracast but I don't think this is really what you want to do
You can cast almost any video on the web to the fire tv using something like Web Video Cast but it doesn't work at all like Google Cast
Io ho l'idea perfetta e tuo ovviamente sei la persona giusta per realizzarla.
Ti spiego il mio bisogno: ho il chromecast a casa ma non ho voglia di installare ogni volta un'app diversa per vedere una cosa (Rai, la7, dplay, altro), però ogni tanto vorrei vedere un video qua e là.
La mia procedura è:
youtube-dl -j url
Questo chiaramente è noisoso (youtube-dl va in shell), scomodo per playlist (che yotube-dl gestirebbe ma io devo fare a mano) e devo filtrare "a occhio" le url non compatibili con il chromecast (oppure andare di tentativi manuali).
Potresti fare un'app che combina youtube-dl + chromecast, io ti do una url, l'app usa youtube-dl per trovare lo streaming e me lo lancia sulla tv.
Nota: youtube-dl è compatibili con una miriade di siti ed è rilasciato in public domain.
Or from your phone using [link]
RedBox forces you to choose between a few apps to play the stream. I use this app to stream to my Roku:
It also supports chromecast. Would be great if you can use any media players, but this works well enough.
Do you get MXPlayer as an option or does it auto open? if it auto opens then it is set as the default. If it is a single option then it could be the video address. If you want to try it with my app (Web Video Caster) and it doesn't work, then I can take a look at the exact video and server and see why that is.
Unfortunately..no. BTW I used to run such sites on [link]
If web video cast can't do it, I don't think anything will
If it doesn't work, switch to a $40 Fire tv stick: you can run an actual browser on the thing and watch videos like that.
Do you have a link? All I'm seeing is "Web Video Cast", not your Web View caster.
Try this app it might help: [link]
Try Web Video Caster.
I'm using this one for my phone only:
Otherwise, from my laptop, I obviously have to use the Chrome browser like everyone else.
Try the ace stream engine and share it with some casting app like mine.
The acestream engine on android will share an m3u8 with most apps, at least it shares it with my app as far as I've tested, however not all streams will work. BubbleUPnP might be able to transcode those that don't work with my app.
Web video cast is the best one i have been using from last couple of years. it’s pretty good! WVC
Try casting with Web video cast or localcast.
False. There are a few apps that can route the audio to your phone. Could be a possible solution if bluetooth speakers are available.
My fav: [link]
When casting, try Web video cast (play with - web video cast) and when playing on your phone, try Exoplayer.
Try casting with Web video cast or localcast. I always cast with these apps and never had any subtitle issues with my CC2.
From u/aftvnews ' article...
Or alternatively, use something like Web Video Caster on your Andriod phone, which actually uses the Fling protocol to send directly to your AFTV.
If you want to cast to a Chromecast, you can use Terrarium with the Web Video Cast app (it allows to change subs size, color, sync, etc.). You can load the subs from your phone after downloading them. Just use Play with... in Terrarium after tapping on the video source.
Combination of fmovies and Web Video Caster
However, Web Video Caster does a much better job:
Tu comentario me hizo probar, puedes verlo en el Chromecast con esta maravilla sin mayor complicacion.
Web Video Cast perhaps (website)
I don't think Localcast is that difficult to use.. but Web video cast might be a little bit easier..so try Web Video Cast. After installation, go into settings, then enable "Always use subtitles". Every time you "play with" and choose WVC, it will show you the subtitles menu. Click on Opensubtitles there.(Screenshot) You will see the subtititles list like TTV. You just then choose the one you want. (Screenshot)
This used to work pretty well with fire TV if you have an android, there's option for Roku/Roku TV. [link]
Ay brotato, use
If you use Google rewards you can get the paid for version for free with built in adblock.
Web Video Caster
I've used this app before to cast html5 video to my Roku.
I use an app called Web Video Caster:
You can cast streaming links and also local files. It's really good and opens up the uses of the Chromecast for me!
Try Web Video Caster. [link] (sub button)
If you're having issues you can try this app they suggested in one post, is pretty cool, just use the direct link on it:
The easiest way to cast is just using the html5 player or native one and use the cast icon in the player itself. (for live games use the green one). You must be on the same wifi, it won't work if you use the nearby devices functionality in your chromecast.
Note: Yellow streams are only available in Europe.
if the native player doesn't work with your CC, give this app a try from your android device. works great for me:
Use web video cast and the fire stick, it works much better than mirroring.
if you have an android device, try casting using Web Video Cast.
Worked well for me before I setup Kodi.
Similarly, this app lets you cast to Google, Fire, Roku. Just found it today and it works like a charm.
This [link] might work for you
Casts web videos to your Chromecast
[Web Video Cast | Browser to TV (Chromecast/DLNA/+) - Android] ...
Try web video caster. I find it more reliable for internet streams.
Here is a formula that works for me. I use a Chromecast and an obsoleted Galaxy S5 and:
Web Video Cast | Browser to TV
I use this app everyday. Even for other sites like movie streaming sites.
Are you using this from Android? my app blocks all popup windows by default. However it does not block redirects by default, that is part of premium.
Web Video Cast will do it for online media,
LocalCast for local files.
I made an app for Android to do this, I'm guessing there are iOS equivalents. Search for "Chromecast browser" or "Cast browser".
Web Video Cast: [link]
Or PC? VLC has experimental CC support but it is pretty broken.
I can recommend the "web video cast" app from Google Play. I use the app, very useful. [link]
If you have an android device, this app works pretty well for me:
I would also be interested in a browser extension with the functionality you're describing.
I've moved over from kissanime to 9anime.to and am going through Duel Monsters now. It has both sub and dub and is free.
If you have a chromecast, Android phone and are interested in watching on your tv, check out Web Video Caster ([link]). Works great for cartoon/anime sites.
If you have a Chromecast and an Android phone, these sites work very well with Web Video Caster.
where do you have problems with 9anime and chromecast? I use them together all the time without issue.
I don't know if this makes the difference, but I use [link] (Web Video Cast) to do the casting as opposed to straight from Chrome.
I am using this one:
It can cast pretty much any video you find online (except for amazon prime instant video), as well as files stored on your device or in your network.
Yes, it should do. I know it works on iOS natively, android has a player that supports m3u8 (if not natively) but cant remember what it's called.
EDIT: It's called Web Video Cast and also lets you cast to other sources.
Probá esta app que está muy buena, no sé si te servirá tho
Eu uso o webcast para assistir aos programas da Globosat!
I actually edited the xml file to use this in place of local cast. Then I keep the xml file in a separate folder. I'll drop a copy of it in the correct folder when I want to use chromecast, and delete it when I want to use my phone.
Local Cast didn't work for one of my repos, so I started doing this. I've only tried it twice, but it fixed the issue I was having. Good luck!
I don't think there's an ios version, but I use Web Video Caster - [link]
Not sure if this is what you mean by CBS but I've been very happy with [link]
I use ( a must for Chromecast IMO) [link] for casting it.
Also if you are a bit more on the progressive side there is always TYT on youtube.
Web video cast
It uses casting but it pulls the url on the shield and is only linked to you phone as a remote. You can share from chrome using it.
I know this isn't adressing your issue directly but this might be an alternative until you/they get it fixed
I'm still interested in the answer but I've found that Web Video Caster (also?) has integrated OpenSubtitles support which works fine.
You don't need kodi if you have chromecast. Do you have an iPhone or Android phone?
I'll just tell you how in this edit: If you have a chromecast-
Download Web Video Cast | Browser To TV
Open it up and navigate to Solarmovie.is/tv and search for The Americans
Cast to to your tv and press play after closing the ad.
It should work. Let me know if you need help or if you have an iPhone. I think there is a different app for iPhone.
This might do it
I've found great luck using android for this kind of thing. There's a Casting app that has the best ability of extracting video files better than any other platform I've used. Redditor-made, redditor-approved.
Obviously it's going to try to cast the file if it finds it, but you can copy it and/or paste it into any 'ol downloader to get direct access.
Then again, .smf is an audio (midi) file. While WVC can cast/detect these, I doubt you're going to get video out of a .smf. It could be that the file you found isn't the actual video file, and any app or program should spit out a list of available content.
This app - [link] manages to cast the videos if you share the link to it. Would it be good if you could add a RSS feed from the news sites to Kodi and it pulls the videos of the articles out to watch.
I use the web video caster app
If you have an Android device, try an app called Web Video Cast
here's the link: [link]
away: Brooklyn Nets vs. home: Atlanta Hawks
These links expires after 5 minutes (20:38:55 PST), refresh the post to get a new link if it expired.
away: Phoenix Suns vs. home: Minnesota Timberwolves
These links expires after 5 minutes (01:56:59 PST), refresh the post to get a new link if it expired.
Do you know what the version number is, I think I have the latest as well. I would also really appreciate it if you could tell me if my app also has the issue but I totally understand if you don't want to install it. [link]
Oops sorry, guess I should have added that.
I use an app called web video caster and it works great with my chromecast. Not laggy at all.
Also, Web Video Caster. I use it with Showbox among other things.
as /u/WarpSeven pointed out I think this is your best option
The page is a little vague but if you can get a link to the stream then 85% chance it should work along with this app [link]
^ BTW this is a total must have app for all Android + Chromecast users.
Just found and downloaded [link] and got it streaming just fine now. Add the full m3u8 URL in the in-app browser.
EDIT: Also tried casting VLC using full screen/window cast through the cast tab extension, but the frame rate wasn't as good.
if you have an android use this app [link] to cast to chromecast
I use the WebVideoCaster App on Android to cast the m3u8 stream. Works amazingly well! [link]
Well what i did was download this app
Then open it up and go to the funimate site and login. Their you pick what you want to watch then press the play button on top and cast to your screen
I'm using Web video caster
To open watchseries.to inside the app, working great. May also work for this site.
This has worked for me with quite a few streaming sites.
Chromecast is easily one of my favorite purchases from last year. So cheap and yet has brought so much content to my TV. Heck it's probably paid itself off by now with all the free offers and movie rentals.
Here are some of my app recommendations if you're looking beyond the usual Netflix/YouTube fare:
Webvideo Caster: Let's you cast ANY video on the web to your TV.
Plex: Use your computer as your media library that you can cast to your TV. Not sure if I linked to the correct app version but there should be a free version that supports Chromecast.
PlutoTV: If you prefer the channel watching experience, this has some curated channels that you can cast. The app still needs some work though; I don't know why they don't let you cast unless the app is currently open.
Haystack: Good for catching up on news custom tailored to your interests. The content is still somewhat limited though and pretty US centric outside of major world events, but it has served my news needs so far.
There's also other stuff like Crunchyroll if you like anime and Twitch if you're into watching game streams. Also check out /r/Chromecast for way more info.
Try the web video caster app: [link]
For any android + chromecast users... Im having success with Web Video Caster.
Copy paste the game link and cast to the TV.
I have an app for the Chromecast called Web Video Caster made exactly for that type of stuff (website has videos and you want to stream them to a TV) and my current beta supports a bunch more streaming devices and I am just a few hours from publishing a new beta with FireTV support.
Can put links in a queue.
It isn't as user friendly as ShowBox or HDCinema, but I use Web Video Caster to stream flash based videos online to my Chromecast. I have it bookmarked to solarmovie.is and go from there.
I've only watched it for a few minutes but it seems to work with my app Web Video Caster, but let me know if you have any issues.
From my Nexus 4, this and from my iPad, this.
Didn't want to self promote, specially on a non Chromecast sub but anyways my app is Web Video Caster. Like I said it is a pain to use with that site. I had to turn on ad mode 1 and used Chrome win7 as the user agent. It acted like it was going to fail but all of the sudden it actually played the show.
Once you have the video on your website, try visiting it with your phone and have Web Video Caster installed. It makes almost any video castable from almost any website. Hell it'll even cast .gifs.
If you want to try and cast your video from your Google Drive, you'll want to try ExootCast.
Edit: these are Android only solutions.
Try this - [link] . I use this instead of BubbleUPnP these days.
Web Video Caster works. Just tried it.
I used Web Video Caster. Just paste the link into the app's browser after connecting it to your chromecast and press play.
After installing WVC it will come up as one of your "players" when you start a video. Here are the steps:
Select video & push "watch now"
The "complete action using" list should come up for you.
Select WVC (or I use MX to stream or Easy Downloader Pro to download) to cast it
Be sure to push "just once" or it will be set as your default player
WVC pops up with the url to the mp4 file of your video
Connect WVC to your Chromecast
That should be it. Just worked again for me with the new showbox.
Posted this above (more detail), but try using Web Video Caster. Works for me with the new showbox.
Try web caster?
I use showbox for streaming and use this too cast
Try web video cast (beta?). It likely can cast audio only, although I haven't tried myself.
Have you tried Web Video Caster? I searched the subreddit for "m3u" and found a post that mentioned it.
Are you on Android? you can try my app Web Video Caster but it needs GrowBox to work.
I really don't get why people use there ps4 to watch anime when there browser sucks. All u need is a roku or chromecast and just use this app if u have an iPhone
If u have android use this app
