Cast online videos from your iOS device to the new 2015 Apple TV! Use your TV to watch videos that are embedded in webpages.
Install A-Cast Player app in your Apple TV and install this A-Cast app in your iOS device. After you connect the devices to the same Wi-Fi network, launch both apps and add the TV to your iOS device in this app.
NOTE: Please keep the A-Cast Player open in Apple TV when using this A-Cast app.
Browse the web for videos in this app and cast them to the A-Cast Player in Apple TV. It's that easy!
After casting the video to the TV app, it will play the video on the TV independent of this iOS app in the mobile device. This is not a screen-mirroring app so you don't need the phone or tablet after casting the video. The video is directly streamed to the TV from the website.
If you see A-Cast Player load the video but not play, please try casting the video again.
You will only be able to cast online videos from webpages and not the videos stored in your device.

Ratings and Reviews
Good basic webcasting functionality.
I've been looking for a mechanism to view arbitrary webcasts on my new AppleTV and this app, paired with its tvOS sibling, does the trick nicely.
Pair the iOS app with an AppleTV running the A-Cast tvOS app on a local wifi network (supports multiple AppleTVs), navigate to & launch a webcast with the embedded browser in the iOS app, choose the desired target AppleTV, and the iOS app hands off the webcast URL to its tvOS partner.
There are a few drawbacks: doesn't provide for access to your existing Safari bookmarks, and doesn't replicate its own bookmarks between your iOS devices. Hopefully these deficiencies will be rectified in a future update (I'm using version 1.0,2).
I’ve been using this app since the end of 2015. At that time l was tired of air-playing videos from my device was looking for a way to have a browser for my apple tv. Why don’t we have a Safari browser on our apple tvs??? So, with this app’s browser you can load any movies or videos from any website, and you are free to use your other device as soon as the video is casted to the apple tv.
The only improvements to be made to the browser would be an ad blocker, a pop-up blocker and multiple tabs support.
But, for what it does, this app is well worth the money. It never crashed or displayed an error.
