Cast to TV using QuickCast, which is a newly launched mobile application on Google Play store and Apple App Store that enables the users to cast web videos, music or photos from their mobile phone and SD Card to their smart TV. It can be used to cast to TV, Chromecast and any other receiver protocol like Android Smart TV, Amazon Fire Stick, Fire TV, KODI, and other DLNA devices. The users can cast videos, music, images from their mobile to TV in just a few clicks. This Youtube video explains how QuickCast works.
One of the App Store users says in their review, “I’ve tried paid and free apps which require downloading (and paying for) apps on the fire stack, having to run both etc. None work well, some not at all. This app requires no download on the fire stick. You just select the fire stick when the app prompts you and well, it just works. Does background play too!”
QuickCast automatically detects the cast devices and the streaming devices to cast media files from the web. It is equipped with powerful ads detector and blocker for uninterrupted entertainment. The user can also bookmark their favorite sites and videos to play them later. The app supports multiple video search engine and enables the user to browse and delete playback history. It can be used to local video casting, music & audio casting and photos slideshow cast. With this app, the user can control their TV using their phone and perform actions like-pause, volume, forward/backward, previous/next etc.
In addition, QuickCast supports the most popular streaming devices that allow the users to stream videos on their TV directly from the web. Most of the devices are supported by the app includeing Google Cast receivers, Chromecast 1,2, and Ultra HD 4K TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Fire TV Stick, Android TV box with DLNA or AirPlay built-in as well as Smart TVs like LG WebOS, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, TCL and many more TV boxes with DLNA.
The iOS users can cast web videos, local videos, music or pictures to a Chromecast, Apple TV or Smart TV. They can simply download the QuickcCast app from the App Store and cast on the TV from their iPhone, iPod or a webpage to devices like Apple TV 4th Gen, Nexus Player, Amazon Fire TV, Sonos, Xbox 360 and other DLNA devices.
It is also to be noted that the Chromecast supports specific formats like mp4, mkv, 3gp and m4v, but all these containers use different codecs. If the video or audio is not playing from the iOS device, it means that the codec is not supported by the casting device.
