A tap on the link will start the show. You don't need to install a big media server like Plex or any other third party software.
>>> Important Notes
* To enable video casting please open the App Store on your Sony TV, search for 'TV Cast' and install the companion app.
* If your Sony TV is powered by Google Cast or Chromecast built-in, please download our dedicated App 'Video & TV Cast | Google Cast' to enable casting.
* Please enter the ip-address of your iPhone/iPad by using the number pad and up/down/left/right keys on your Sony Remote. Just enter the numbers, no need to press the enter key.
* iTunes movies, Flash video and DRM protected videos like Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, DirecTV, Xfinity, HBO now are not supported!
* Please test your favorite videos with the free edition before upgrading!
* Please use the Remote Playbar for video control while browsing (see more info below)
* The app streams only the video part of a website and not the whole website content (No screen or tab mirroring!).
* Sometimes it is necessary to play the video on your iPad or iPhone first before it gets discovered by the app for streaming. It may also be neccessary to start casting multiple times until it works with specific videos.
* If a specific video is not working, please check the FAQ on the app startpage. If that does not help you, please drop us an email before leaving a negative comment on the App Store. We will try to add support for that website as soon as possible.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is very useful for when I want to watch stuff online and put it on the big screen but sometimes it lags terribly. Like every 5 seconds. I try disconnecting everything but my tablet so the tv can get good signal but sometimes it keeps lagging. I hope they can fix this bug soon. Or maybe a way to be able to change the server or something.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for taking time to review our app. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Please try the following options that may help:
(1) Please make sure you have a stable internet connection (both your iOS device and the receiver device). Please also try to move your wifi access point (or router) nearer to your receiver device and your sender device to improve the signal.
(2) Please make sure that the energy-saving mode of your phone is not activated (the battery percentage of your iOS device should ideally be above 30%). This can lead to incorrect transmission.
(3) Please try to turn off both your iOS device and your Cast device completely (pull the plug) and let it cool down for about 5 minutes.
(4) Please try to switch between 2,4 GHz and 5GHz wifi network as due to different conditions the different frequencies could work better or worse.
(5) Please check out the tutorial videos and the FAQ inside the app.
Please let us know if any of these solutions work for you. We'd love to hear from you.
Pretty Good Casting
Pluses: Hi def source on iPhone is hi def on the tv. Also using a Sony blu ray player works for casting to a non smart & non Sony tv.
Minuses: Because of Sony’s complete lack of support for useful apps on players like the BDP-S6700 the home screen’s Opera TV app very slowly launches the truly horrible “vewd” app which won’t remain on your home screen for next time. This app is found in vewd. Most player apps are placed in vewd and they’re truly crummy apps. The box the player comes in uses pictures of apps as a con job. Thanks a lot Sony, as usual.
This app often hangs up and won’t cast a program, just a prior commercial repeatedly. Eventually you get the show.
And it won’t allow subtitles to pass thru.
When it works it’s great.
Has issues with loading so then you have to uninstall app a few time but when it does work it does a pretty good job but it doesn’t work on every site
