  • Not playing mp3 (edited) Dec 28, 2017

    By Aquilla Network
    I’m trying to play music on my home mini but when I try to get mp3 from Dropbox it says it’s not supported. I went to the link in the desc and mp3 is supported EDIT: Uploaded mp3 to google drive and everything works. Very good quality, but still pulling off a star for the fact I had to transfer to drive. 😐

  • Local Cast won’t run in iOS 11 Sep 21, 2017

    By Seperry
    I installed iOS 11 on 2 devices: an iPhone 6sPlus and and iPad mini 2, and Local Cast crashes on both devices after about 3 seconds during the app’s startup. I tried deleting and then downloading fresh copies on both devices as well as shutting down each device and restarting. No luck. FYI, 5 stars because I loved the app when it worked. Hopefully a fix is in the works.

  • Works with drive video, scrubbing is broken Mar 10, 2018

    By Evan I Am
    5 stars for being the first app I can find to cast Google Drive video. However it's not perfect: video scrubbing doesn't work at all, and I usually have to restart the app after each video. Still worth it imo

    This was a good app. With the update of the version before this one, if you changed the playback speed, when you hit the reset, it would not go back to normal playback. With today's update, it's still doing the same thing. All versions prior to that last two updates WOULD reset to normal playback speed. Fix this bug, and you will have a great app. Also if you would fix it showing the next video in the directory automatically. Put an option in settings to choose autoplay or not.

  • Nope, still won't connect after latest update!! Jun 30, 2017

    By LPC1
    Under the tab "DNLA/Upnp" your app used to connect fine to my "WDMyCloud" drive it used to work great until you redesigned the look awhile back and broke something. Now under "DNLA/Upnp" it still sees my WDMyCloud drive and it shows icons of content including all the photos, videos & music on my drive. BUT it will NOT play anything anymore. When a video or music or photo there is clicked now it says "NOT connected, touch the amber button in the lower right to connect." So then I do that and it just forever reads "Scanning network for devices...". It stays stuck there forever & thus is not working now. It used to work fine & was great until the latest recent updates, (thank goodness your Apple TV app still works). The new iPhone app design looks very nice but since it broke the app from playing anything that it still sees and shows on my drive but will not play any of it then what's the point of having it if it shows the contents but won't play any of it anymore now. (Maybe go back to the simpler design at least it worked then.) Please fix ASAP and then I will reconsider the review, thanks.

    Loaded with tons and tons of ads. Ok I can understand a few it's free after all but the amount of ads in this app is ridiculously high. Even 5 sec there is a advertisement. Would detect my TV and when I try to play something, you know what, yeah you guessed it right, it doesn't cast. Also a funny thing is that it detects my Sony Smart TV as an apple TV. I don't know what this kind of app is doing on play store. Garbage app.

    I'm sorry, but there's something wrong with this app. It keeps CLAIMING that a video isn't supported and that is the Chromecasts fault. But that's BS. It will play one video but not another and BOTH of these videos have the EXACT same specs. Same codec, same bit rate, same resolution, same frame rate, and shot with the same phone and the same settings. Yeah sorry, but the app is the problem.

    Since the last update, casting Cartoon HD is not possible anymore. I realise you haven't created the app with this site in mind. But LocalCast is used a lot by myself and many others. If it would be possible for you to look into this issue it would be much appreciated. I still think LocalCast is one of the best casting apps available, so I thank you for creating the app. 👍🙏

    The app casts to Chromecast audio hence 5*. However, I am missing a couple of features: - cannot filter songs by genre, only by folder, artist. Other media players all support this feature. - can change the font but not the font size. I have a 10" tablet and song name is so tiny you can hardly read it if you are 1m away. - there is a bug where folder picture (folder.jpg) is not displayed for folders with more than 50 files inside

  • Great idea for an app Mar 2, 2018

    By Randoguy37
    This really is a great idea, and it does work well. Unfortunately, it has some bugs. I hope these bugs will be fixed in a future version. Specifically, the ability to fast forward / rewind (video scrubbing). I did not test this with all videos, but his feature did not work when I played videos from my google drive.

    Unless I keep my phone open constantly and watch adds it will stop every two minutes which is annoying. Also hard to skip to where I'm up to when it inevitably shuts down after I miss an add. Managed to make it work tho I could relax as I constantly had to tap my phone. However I didn't have to pay for it so props to that idea for us broke students.

  • Should have read reviews Oct 26, 2019

    By Rob1GSXR1000
    I’m not going to recite the things others have said. I bought the app without reading reviews because of the number of stars. I’m giving it 3 stars because at least it seems to work OK for local pics on my phone. Hoping the developer can fix everything as it’s a great idea.

  • It launches next video on its own Jul 3, 2017

    By Demir9
    While playing a video, if i bring the app to foreground, the app automatically stops the current video and starts the next video in my local nas drive folder. It should not start any video without user action. Otherwise good. Thanks.

    It's good to be honest. But it has subtitles section but no audio section? The file I have has multiple audio. I cant change to the audio language I want.

  • Better than nothing? Maybe Jun 11, 2018

    By animandyac
    This app will cast exactly one song. It will do continous play within an album or artist, nor will it shuffle at all, even though it boasts that function. Casting one song is better than no songs, because apple and chromecast hate each other, but I can't figure out why this app does the hard part (cast), but can't do what is presumably the easy part, play two songs in a row. I use the app to hear the one song I have a hankering for, then give up. Looking forward to an improvement or alternative.

    Doesn't broadcast itself to be discovered like bubbleupnp or many others. Most other apps are immediately identified by the PlayStation 4 media player. Also the main screen is cluttered and basically one big advertisement.

  • Does not cast Dropbox Aug 17, 2019

    By Pier3285
    After paying for this app I discovered that it will not cast photos from Dropbox. It can open Dropbox and access the photos but will not cast them. The error message is “file type not supported” even though many of the photos are .jpg. I am using it on my apple 10 iPhone and my up to date apple iPads. The app has not been updated in 11 months even though apple has made several os changes in that period of time.
