HOW IT WORKS

Web Video Caster is a browser cast app, which allows you to stream videos for movies, TV shows, and other media from the internet through a streaming device to display on your television. Web Video Caster grabs the video URL, sends it to the streaming device (i.e. Chromecast, Fire TV, Roku), and then plays the video directly from the content provider. This ultimately saves your mobile device’s battery. Web Video Caster does not host these videos. This is not a mirroring app.

The app will also allow you to download videos for which you have permission to do so. Start the video downloader from the video list dialog. File types include MP4, AVI, WEBM. Excludes live streams (M3U8).

GET STARTED

Follow these simple step-by-step instructions to start streaming:

1. Find a video online that you want to watch.

2. Make sure this video can play on mobile browsers without Flash.

3. Connect to one of the supported devices listed above.

4. Play the video as you normally would. Or, click the play button on the toolbar.

Web Video Cast user reviews :

The app sometimes would freeze, sometimes it doesn’t play a mobile friendly video (would have to restart the app in order to make it work), AND when I cast a video, for whatever reason I can now see an ugly scroll bar underneath the video. Back then it didn’t have any of that, but during one of the updates, this scroll bar is there and it is just annoying to look at! It is very distracting whenever I would watch a video. The app still does its main purpose, but that ugly scroll bar is really annoying!!!!!!

  • As the what’s new section describes, the bar at the bottom is a bug on the latest chromecast firmware. You can fix it by disabling the title under settings or by installing the beta. You can email me at webvideo@instantbits.com for the beta apk or signup for betas. If you have some video that doesn’t work then send me the link and I’ll analyze it.
Good App But Can’t Buy Premium I use this app all the time with Chromecast but when I press buy premium nothing happens.

  • Usually when that happens rebooting the phone will fix it. Email me at webvideo@instantbits.com if it doesn’t help
