Hello!
Thank you very much for this app. I sideloaded on my FTVS and it works great with Spotify. Unfortunately I can't detect it with any other app like Chrome / Youtube... Is this app able to cast only sound?

Install Google Home on your tablet, phone, whatever and go to cast screen.

This works great. Just gonna keep stuff like roms\emulators on my tablet primarily now.
Thank you!

Hi, thanks for apk. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. I have installed your apk and googleHome Cast app. Moreover i installed the google play service for android tv. On my phone and my PC i can see the new "tv-stick-chromecast-device", but i don't can see anything if i try to send something from Phone or PC to the Stick. After opening the Chromecast app i tried to go to cast screen, but there is no device found. What i'm doing wrong, please help me. Thank you.

greetings

VERY cool!
It took me several times to get it to cast but it is works.
I hope this app sticks around longer than the last Google cast app for AFTV.

Hi josuelopezv:
What's so shameful. Developers give you a convenient to install android box without Google Play Service since you said you already buy it from Google PlayStore. But you leak it as piracy and don't think how many times developers spend to implement the Cast Protocol in house.

Free APK to send chrome cast content (screen cast and tab cast) to your fire tv. It supports any fire tv.

Instructions:
side load the APK to your Fire TV


Version 1.2

This is not my work but it is verified to work and it does not contain any ads or any limitations

I thought this is forbidden/illegal? Shouldnt this thread or at least the APK have been deleted?
I do not have a problem to buy any app that has the right functionality.
Im just not used to see pirated content on here(?) :confused: :eek:

This doesn't seem to allow cast of youtube. It works fine for everything else though. Was hoping to use this for a workaround for the upcoming youtube app removal.

Same here. Casting from YouTube via Chrome on my laptop doesn't work but casting the whole screen does (never found a use for that though since the quality and latency make it pretty useless)

Yeah since I found a work around for the coming youtube/fire armageddon I'm not concerned. How are you casting the whole screen btw?

This appears to run as a chromecast receiver & NOT as a chromecast Audio receiver. I'm not sure why Google differentiates them but it would be nice to have a toggle in this app.

    Thanks. So I might as well use default mirror option in FTVS2 instead of this?
    This is mirroring by Google Cast, Amazon's is Miracast which is dead on newer versions of Android.

    There is nothing illegal about this.

    Works great for me, using android 8 on OnePlus 3t to cast to Amazon Fire 4k.
    To use-after installing cast receiver and enabling cast on the fire tv-
    On the phone-
    1. launch the app you want to cast, open video feed (in my case- Motogp app). The casting button will appear but greyed, not working
    2. Open Google home app, cast the phone to the fire tv- the phone will appear on the tv screen
    3. Go back to the video app- now the casting button is active and you can press it and cast!

    Thanks for posting this. Is there any way to support the developer as this appears to be a premium version?
    After I saw it's working and solve my problem- I've installed the app from playstore on my phone and payed for the premium version, you can do that of you like
