Hi,

To push from an Ipad, you have to first start the y2cast program from an Android phone. So, why wouldn't you just also push from the Android phone instead of the Ipad. Am I missing something or is an Ipad version of y2cast coming where you wouldn't need the Android phone? Or would this work with 2 Chromecasts at the same time once you started y2cast, one for the phone and one from the Ipad?

Thanks

Think about this case:
You have an Android phone, your wife has a ipad.
She'd like to use ipad to push media file to chromecase, not operate on your Android phone, right?

Hi Again,

I was trying to get this working on my computer without a phone using Bluestacks, an android emulator. It works the same as on the phone except the cast button doesn't show up on Y2Cast. Is there any way to get the cast button to show up that you know of or is it not possible.

Thanks

I do not try bluestacks, but please make sure y2cast and chromecast is under the same LAN, otherwise, it could not find chromecast.

it seems bluestacks has different IP address, and it could not be changed.

Depends on what people are watching. Because not all apps on Ipad are available on Android and vice versa. Or you may prefer how smoothly certain apps run on Ipad versus Android, or vice versa. I've tested it from our Ipad Air and I think it's brilliant.

Yes, it would be nice and tidy if y2cast was available for IOS. But this is a very cool work-around. Keep in mind you're still relegated to using apps that support DLNA. What would make y2cast even cooler is if it supported Airplay. Because I also tested apps on the Ipad that only support Airplay and the Airplay button was grayed out. I was hoping for some miracle that it would allow me to Airplay to y2cast. LOL! But it can't. You need DLNA supported apps.

Default All cast .avi video support from my android

I'm finding that I can't cast .avi files with Allcast or this app. Will there be any support? Mp4 files are the only video types I see. Further more, I've tried a lot of other cast apps for .avi files on my android nexus 7 and they just give a black screen and broken audio. Anyone had any success? Do tell! :P

Thanks.
