Raspicast – Cast media content from your android device

[App] Raspicast

RaspicastRaspicast : Cast YouTube videos

Cast media content from your android device
Play local media files on your Raspberry Pi
Play streams from playlists (m3u, pls) on your Raspberry Pi

You just need a Raspberry Pi with a running SSH-Server, the omxplayer and optional a little image viewer. I only tested it with Raspbian, but there is no reason why it shouldn’t work on other distributions.

Controllable via a seekbar
Hardware volume buttons
Support for multiple audio and subtitle (srt-format) streams

To cast YouTube videos to your Raspberry Pi just open the YouTube app and a video and choose “Share” ‚Üí Raspicast.
To play streams just copy a playlist (m3u or pls format) to your android device and open the list via the app, or play the streams manually from the actionbar.

image viewer: omxiv.bplaced.net

Raspicast user reviews :

Great app, but it would be better if you added screen mirroring. Anyone who is having trouble casting pictures, you have to install some additional software on the raspberry pi. You have to install the omx image viewer, there is a link in the description.

Everytime i share something from youtube it open up another another window of the cast application on my phone why not just going back to the one i have open already?

Great App. Can someone help me understand what is local audio output

it’s all awesome, but can you fix YouTube quee, it’s not working correctly with playlists ūüôĀ it was ok, but something is not ok for now

Great app! Good that i found it too cause i was about to start writing something similar

Great app. YouTube videos stutter while playing. Otherwise this is perfect for me. Good job developer.

Amazing app. I would be interested to have an option to use vlc instead of omx since omx does not connect to my Bluetooth speaker… this app is a gem

I dont have the subtitle option as here on pictures and it is not working, named the same as the mivie but it doesnt load it up

Wow – I didn’t expect it to work instantly, without even any setup on my Pi Zeros (except enabling SSH which I’d done long ago). It Just Works. Even over whatever’s already running. Then just goes away again. Faster and easier than a Chromecast. Wow…

It’s a s√ļper brillant idea but still need some work to fix errors because when i share multiple videos from YouTube the app creates multiple instances and ends failing the casting. So many thanks for create this project

Hi, in upcoming update, if possible try to add a feature, where the audio output in Android phone itself. It will be great, where user can stream video in tv, n audio in their mobile itself… But overall this is app is gem, n must have for all raspbian users.

Very fictional and beautiful app. Steams local network and youtube-dl supported contents. Would love if developer could introduce live streaming support as well

1:Video playing should have option to forward and reverse video 30sec. 2: option to change audio stream Required when video has multiple audio format 3: support to select different video aspect ratio size 4: image casting not working

The implementation has been done really well and very user friendly. All you need to do is install the app and start ssh on raspberry pi.

Just amazing app. Does what it says. The developers had done a wonderful job. Thanks a ton.
