AllCast Releases on their way to Play/Chrome store
There's an updated AllCast Receiver
Chrome app. This release includes UX changes, and fixes to work with the new versions of AllCast out there.
There's also some fancy new Mirror receiver code that will allow mirroring from all newer Android devices, and not just the ones that support WebRTC. Hoping to get Mirror out the door soon here. The ADB Shell for Chrome was actually a stepping stone towards that release (non root support). If I don't do that soon, I'll publish a new beta extending the expiration time bomb.https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/allcast-receiver/hjbljnpdahefgnopeohlaeohgkiidnoe?hl=en-USAllCast
has been updated some fancy new things:New/revamped video transcoding engine.
Many phones record 1080p video at 20Mbps+ bitrate. This can bring wifi networks to a grinding halt. Use the Bitrate option under Settings to transcode and stream the video, reatime, into a suitable streaming format.
Recents. +Artem Russakovskii
pinged me about this. Recents will automatically track which folders and media you were browsing recently. Use it there to quickly get back to your favorite media. No more hunting.
Optional AllCast splash screen. Another +Artem Russakovskii
request. The last release immediately started up AllCast and showed a splash screen on the receiver to improve startup time and the first run experience. This is now an option in settings.
Other fixes include:
Chromecast detection fixes.
Better proxy server for primitive receivers (Roku, DLNA)
Subtitles on Chromecast fixes (still need to fix UTF-8 next release)
Remove 10 minute viewing limit on Chromecast in favor of a watermark.
Better looking ad units.
Add Crashalytics for better crash analysis.
New HTTP Engine (supports ion+spdy).
Better grid/list UX. Soon to be a toggleable action bar option.https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.cast&hl=en
