Just purchased allcast and having some issues with streaming from Google music when I initially open the Google music app there's no option to stream to my apple TV, I have to go into the allcast app an open a picture for example before the Google music app will recognise the Apple TV, I've checked the settings and clicked the Google music button which preformed a restart but still the same behaviour, any help would be appreciated.

Google and Apple don't mix

I have been using allcast for months for my chromecast and Google tv but it has now stopped working with apps such as tv portal or video mix pro. Casting via other apps works fine and I can cast from Google+ in local allcast app but choosing outside of app doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?

Showbox working fine for me with allcast

I purchased AllCast Premium last week. I love casting a video to one of my Roku's for the kids in the family room, while casting a video to my Chromecast at the same time. The Roku connection is more stable, plus the remote works. For anybody thinking of getting AllCast Premium, I'd highly recommend it.

Yesterday I installed AllCast Receiver on my youngest son's Nexus 7. It's pretty awesome. I have a few questions: He can't control playback. I'm assuming this is designed? Can this functionality be added as an option? Also, when I cast to the Nexus 7 (2012) from my Nexus 10, the AllCast screen on my Nexus 10 flashes the Pause button so I have to time it to Pause the cast. Not sure if this is a known bug, but I'm adding my two cents.

Will take a look about to see what the pause flashing is about.

Hi,
ALLCast seems to be one of the best apps for streaming to chromecast. When using serviio, I can select subtitles, which is great.

Only issue I have is the black bar behind the subs.

Is there anyway to get rid of these?

thanks Rob.

I just got the chromecast and trying to decide between allcast and other apps. The one major feature that allcast lacks is volume control using the buttons. Tried it with my HTC one and nexus 7 but it never worked, works with other apps. Will third be added?

Also can you integrate it with ES File Explorer? I can get around it but would be easier if everything was in one app.

When the volume button are added back I will buy it (been a cwm fan for years and trust them) but not having it is just a deal breaker.

It seems that my tablet through Allcast can't find my chromecast? But if I go through other chromecast programs it can be found.

After the last update:
Google drive: showing pictures from my drive is fine when picking one picture at the time. Showing a slideshow from my drive, problems appear. The slideshow runs fine on the tablet, but not through the chromecast. Pictures appears, but there is missing about five to ten pictures in between, if I compare the tablet to the pictures appearing on the chromecast.

Hope to get this fixed. Otherwise very nice work. Your app is one of the apps I use the most

I can successfully cast my screen with:
mirror - all cast receiver and
mirror - wireless display (miracast)

But to Chromecast isn't working, Chromecast stay black and mirrors say casting in progress.

Ideas?

Is there any chance of developing a sender app for OSX that would allow screen mirroring to allcast?

+Koushik Dutta, +Koushik Dutta the latest updates made my allcast useless on my Nexus 10 and my s4. The app can't find the wireless devices on my network.

Hi
 I was looking for a chromecast to cast from my phone to my tv and i found allcast app. Looks great but i have some problems.
I use a samsung s4 mini phone with android 4.2.2 and an apple tv 2 ios 5.0.2 connected with a wire to my router. My problem is that every time when i want to cast an avi file (like my kids cartoons)  or something from youtube i receive the message "An error occurred when loading content" on my tv.
The curios thing is that it works great with photos, music and smaller videos made with my phone.
I receive the same error regardless what quality i choose for the video even on the premium version of the app.
If i can get this to work i won't need the chromecast anymore , it just suit my needs

thanks in advance

+Koushik Dutta when Mirror copies itself to the system partition does it do anything other than put the apk in /system/priv-app? I wrote an addon.d to persist it across my nightly flashes but after a flash the app crashes until I manually reinstall it again.

LAST UPDATED: 16 June 2014 at 1:30PM GMT

I've done a full review on bugs and features of Allcast before, and with the latest update, I feel another one is required.

The reason that I love this app, is because it streams from so many sources to so many devices and renderers. I've tried bubbleupnp, but it's interface isn't user friendly, and it's upcoming interface is still not as refined and intuitive as Allcast.

+Koushik Dutta I hope my feedback below is helpful.

A. BUG FIX REQUESTS

1. Casting pics from my phone storage to Chromecast doesn't work. Nothing happens. Works fine on my tablet though. Also Google Drive casting causes a force closure on all my devices. The "now playing" screen (with its swipe navigation) doesn't work on my note 3 when casting my LOCAL device pics

2. If I override a stream to my Chromecast with another stream (e.g. connect to YouTube without disconnecting from Allcast first), the Allcast actionable notification stays lingering. When I realise that I have the Allcast notification still hanging around, I press the stop button in Allcast notification, but it not only cancels the Allcast notification but the new active stream too. I can't simply dismiss the Allcast notification with a swipe.

3. There is a random stop button in the app action bar. It looks like this is really a disconnect and exit button. Is that right? Is it a master kill switch? The now playing section already has a stop button and so does the actionable notification. This 3rd button confuses me.

B. REFINEMENT REQUESTS

1. This is a request I've been wanting for forever now. A "time elapsed" indicator (or at least the option to toggle between "time elapsed" or "time remaining") on the "now playing" screen. Without a "time elapsed" view, it is hard to know from where I'm starting my scrub from. I prefer the standard approach taken by all other streaming apps ie time elapsed on left and time remaining on the right

2. I have multiple Roku units, and when I have to select a unit to play to, I have multiple "Roku Streaming Player" selections, and I do not know which one is which. Any chance of building the MAC address serial number or some unique identifier into the name?

3. Ability to reconnect to a Chromecast stream from a different device or on same initiating device after a reboot. When my phone reboots, I'm unable to reconnect to the stream.

C. NEW FEATURE REQUESTS

1. Desktop app for on-the-fly transcoding when within a network that has a PC that can run such a transcoder. When PC transcoder isn't available, the in-app transcoder should kick in.

2. Would love to see the capability to add queues, so that I can send multiple videos and pics to the AllCast queue without having to pic up my phone each time an item finishes streaming.

3. Manual refresh button to force check for network attached devices

D. FUNCTIONAL TESTING

+Koushik Dutta with the new update, picture casting on my note 3 phone isn't working, but it works on my note 10.1 tablet.

On my tablet, the Chromecast connects to Allcast and then shows the pic, but on phone, nothing happens when I hit the picture
