Get your media on the TV with LocalCast! The only one that can:
- Use your phone as wireless headphones !
- rotate pictures and movies
- zoom in and out pictures and movies

☆ Cast pictures, videos or music from your device, NAS or the browser
★ Add subtitles (select the subtitle file in the folder view after you started a video)*
☆ Rotate pictures and videos
★ Choose files on your device either from the library or use the folder view
☆ Connect to your NAS via smb or DLNA/UPnP
★ Zoom in & out pictures and videos
☆ Open a movie stream in your browser then hit the share button and choose LocalCast or
★ Copy a link to a movie and choose "Paste link" in the app

(* internal subtitles which are inside the video container don't work YET)
(arabic subtitles: Please change the encoding in the settings to UTF-8)

Usage is pretty easy:

1. Connect to Chromecast:
First from the official Chromecast app
Second from Localcast

2. Choose what to stream:
Select a video, picture or song in the app from your device or from a NAS (smb or DLNA/UPnP)
or
Send the media to the app from other apps.
E.g. open a streaming site in your browser, choose a video there and send the link to LocalCast via the share button in your browser. For some sites it is best to use the mobile version.

Please check out the supported formats here:
https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media

If your format is not supported, use handbrake to convert the file:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/handbrake/

I will probably add support for more formats in the future, if there is a demand for the app, which I will judge from the ratings...

Free and ads supported, the ads can be removed via an in app purchase for a price from 1 to 5 €. Choose what you'd like to pay.

I am just one independent developer working on my apps whenever I can, without a big budget for testing on various devices. If you find a bug please contact me via Google+ or email and I'll try to fix it ASAP. Thanks for your support and happy casting!
