The app-icon is too much detailed up-right. I cant understand what it symbolize.

Also. the app should be named web-built-in-videos-cast.

or web-video-cast.

One question, how does the inside app-architecture work? Does it download offline in cache and stream seconds later, or does the app (cast controller) redirect live to the device (chromeCast eg.)?

Thank you very much for your effort

-> it's made up of the "Rays" of the Cast-Icon and the Browser-Icon (I think you're pointing to a sea on the globe ), both from Google's Material Icon Set. it's truly not the best, but I'm absolutely no graphics-designer, so this is as good as it gets

-> Not a self-explaining name, I know, but there are already "Web Video Cast" and similar named apps on the store, wanted to make a difference, as it works differently

-> no, it's way easier in a nutshell, it get's the Video's URL from within the browser window and then tells Chromecast's/FireTV's built-in media player to play it. so you even could kill the app after starting the video and it would keep playing and it doesn't drain your battery more than necessary.

UPDTAE: had to artifically remove Youtube support from App, as Google screwed me for this - so next Release won't bring YT to your TV anymore

However, Amazon doesn't care about that kind of stuff, so I implemented this ridicolous "barrier" only for the GooglePlay-Release - via Amazon Appstore it will continue supporting Youtube.
