Other things I forgot already

LocalCast 2.2.3:

LocalCast 2.1.0:

Fixed not casting
Multiple picture selection
SMB: Queue added
Server notification updated
Changelog: 2nd post


LocalCast 2.0.3:
New features:

- Subtitles:
Start a movie, then either hit 'Add subtitle' or just go back and open the Folder view. Navigate to your subtitle and touch it. You can toggle the subtitle on the 'Now playing' screen.

- Rotation:
Pictures and Videos can be rotated in 90 steps

- Zoom:
Pictures and Videos can be zoomed in & out.

- Artist: & Albums:
The music category got 2 new tabs for Artists and Albums

- Paste Link:
You can now paste every link in the App. Instead of blindly searching a video link and playing it, all links to videos will be displayed. You can choose to play it or queue it. This works for links that get shared with the app, too.

- TV Layout:
I don't use a ready made receiver app by Google anymore, but a custom one, where I had to build everything myself, so it looks different. To avoid burn in on Plasma and other TVs, when only music is playing, the background changes and the cover moves.

- Subtitles + SMB:
I forgot to handle subtitles from smb shares. So an easy fix for now is: copy the subtitle to your device. Start the movie from your smb share and add the subtitle.

Thanks! Downloaded and works like a charm on my nexus 7 2013.
If you continue with this, could you possibly add subtitle support?

EDIT: How does the app screen for videos? There are a couple that didn't show up, but they're unplayable with Avia/Real Player Cloud as well. Does the app only show videos that are compatible with the ChromeCast?

You sir are my hero

I would say I love you but then my wife might get jealous :P

PS: Subtitles support would be quite awesome

PS2: Haven't downloaded the app and I'm already waiting for incoming updates and in love with it


EDIT


It's working like a charm but I would like to ask for a feature if it's possible.

Right now the app scans the memory for video files which is great BUT, it's a bit of a mess if you have several videos from whatsapp, downloaded files, camera files, etc.

Would it be possible to separate the files per folders like "Whatsapp videos" Camera Videos", etc... Like how the gallery works.

Also, it would be awesome to be able to also show the pictures and not only the videos... I know is a lot to ask for, but that would make the app perfect...


Also, as I said, the app is working awesomely

I can use this app but, it doesn't detect all of my video files. It detects 1 or 2 in the same folder and same format and permissions and everything but, doesn't detect the others. What can I do?

Is it possible to use the android unified file open dialog? Or maybe some sort of browsing? When I open the app it says no video on device. How do I cast pictures? Its not detecting pics in gallery...
