HOW IT WORKS
Web Video Cast™ is a browser, which allows you to stream videos of movies, TV shows, and other media from the internet to a streaming device or smart tv. Web Video Caster grabs the video URL inside the web page, sends it to the streaming device (i.e. Chromecast or DLNA device), and then plays the video directly from the content provider. This ultimately saves your mobile device’s battery. It also detects subtitles on the web page. Web Video Cast™ does not host these videos. This is not a mirroring app.
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 your streaming device.
4. Play the video as you normally would. Or, click the play button on the toolbar.
• No in-app advertising
• Most visited sites
• Set homepage
**This functionality does not apply universally to all streaming devices.

Ratings and Reviews
Everything about this app is pretty dang good. You can either airplay, use dlna, or cast to the receiver app if you have one installed on the tv. Airplay works quite good but limited to 1080p 60. Using the dlna can work much higher but it depends on your tvs capabilities of what files and performance. But you can if it exists download the app on your tv and connect the phone to that app. Then I haven’t had any issue with ANY video playing. I can change audio track and overall it’s really good. Only issue is that subtitles don’t work correctly at all. A file I know has subtitles ingrained doesn’t show any subtitles. Meaning I can’t watch any anime unless it’s dubbed. Additionally the apps find subtitles online functionality doesn’t work correct even though I’m looking for one punch man s1 e1 I get stranger things. Put simply what works it’s really really good. No clutter and the best app out of many I’ve tried. Once or if subtitles get fixed I’ll change to 5 stars and like buy any pro or whatever as it’s the only app that works correctly (minus subs).
Update 5 stars
Subtitles still aren’t perfect but honestly. This app is the best on the store. They deserve the 5 especially since they don’t have a subscription but just a flat fee. Big fan of the app and like I said it’s jus the best at what it does.
BIG PROBLEM SINCE NEW IOS UPDATE
Hello. I have been using this Web Casting App for about going on two years now. I must say, I love it. Now, like any other App, you may have to delete it and restore it, all of the built up that needs to be deleted, that’s fine.
The issue I am having is I deleted the App from the TV, I deleted and reinstalled the App from my iPhone. If the websites have ads, they want you to unblock it. There’s a lot of delays with whatever you are trying to cast before, during and after. It will just freeze period. I deleted the App from my TV again and my iPhone and reinstalled in both areas. I would watch something, it worked well at the beginning, then again the freezing. I would press the fast forward, and again, it freezes. I got so annoyed today because this has never happened. I will try it again. When will there be some update in the his App? I will have to look for something else until the update are completed.
Best screen casting *app* for iOS to Roku
So I recently have been looking for an app that can screencast videos (which were unavailable on any of the streaming apps available on Roku) from my iPhone 12 to my Roku Express. I honestly have to say that this is the best app out there for iOS to Roku. I can’t get regular AirPlay to work, but they have an app on Roku OS that works smoothly, plus it has an ad blocker on every website FOR FREE! So if you only want to use AirPlay on Roku, I’m not sure this app is the best option; but if you download this app on both your iPhone and your Roku, I fully believe it’s one of the best ones out there— I definitely haven’t found a better one.
