Product Description

*** In-app purchase of $2.99 gives you Chromecast support, casting to DLNA enabled devices, access to Dropbox, support for themes and removes all ads ***


*** ALERT ***
- Make sure your Android device and device you want to cast to, e.g. Chromecast, are using the same Wi-Fi network
- Some users only see the Avia logo when casting to Chromecast. Changing the Wi-Fi channel on your router to anything other than its current setting solves this problem
- When using Avia to access media from other devices, they must have UPnP/DLNA serving enabled.
- When casting from Avia, files MUST be compatible with the receiving device. Many devices have fewer compatible codecs than a home computer. Please review your media formats with the specifications of your devices before attempting to cast. (Example: Chromecast is not compatible with .AVI files) Please see the video conversion guide at aviatheapp.com/support
- Devices running Android Version 4.0.3 have a compatibility issue preventing them from finding Chromecast devices on the network.

Known Devices:
- Toshiba Thrive
- 2012 Versions of the Kindle Fire HD 7" and 8.9" tablets


Version 7.0 Features:
- Chromecast support (in-app purchase required)
- DLNA media sharing integrated with casting
- Automatically adds cover art and music information
- Improved media indexing speed and efficiency
- Easy to use user interface
- Subtitle, scaling, and device support improvements


Avia lets you play, manage and share your personal media. You get seamless access to photos, videos and music from social media sites, your home network, and your device’s local storage.

And of course, Avia still allows you to: Share your photos, videos and music on these devices: Chromecast / Xbox 360 / Xbox One / Google TV / PC / Mac

Play and manage media stored on your Android device, in the cloud or from these devices: Facebook / Dropbox / Google+ Photos (Picasa) / Network Attached Storage (NAS) / Windows Media Player (WMP) / Serviio / Plex / Subsonic / PC / Mac / Other Android Devices

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a let-down 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase
This app is of limited use and although its a freeapp you need to purchase the upgrade before it does anything. It only lets you cast content already stored on your kindle but unable to use to cast videos from YouTube or movies from netflix.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chromecast on the Kindle? 22 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
As a free app, it is nothing more than a media player, and a pretty ugly on to boot. I have not had a chance to test how well it copes with different file formats as I was more interested in its ability to connect to my new Chromecast. Of course, this feature requires an in app purchase (£1.89), which was to be expected but is not clear from the app's description.

Does it work? Yes, but only from the app itself. This means you will be able to cast downloaded media, but don't expect any way to cast Prime Instant Video, for example. The smart money is on Amazon releasing its own version of Chromecast, which is a shame as Chromecast works really well on standard Android and iOS tablets, and support on Kindle from more apps than just Netflix would be very welcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 8 Jan 2013
By Brimdol
Verified Purchase
Simple to use and the talking is in sync. Doesn't need to be connected to wireless to work and you can port all media from your laptop or pc and not have to worry about file type. So far I've played mp4 and avi files no problem. And it's free. What more do you need?

2.0 out of 5 stars Free Media player 13 Jan 2013
By Tino
Verified Purchase
Looks to do the task well, but after downloading it, the app looked a little too complex, with lots of 'bells and whistes' that I did not require. I just wanted a video player. I was also not sure what was going on in the background, so it was removed from my Kindle fire shortly afterwards. It may suit someone more confident in using a multiuse application.

I managed to set up all my other devices to cast on my TV through chrome. My iPhone was really easy to set up even if it's an Apple product and my laptop (PC) was also quite straightforward. Really disappointed that this is making it so difficult to set up the casts from my kindle fire. I have given up so far but will try again.

You have to pay a little extra for casting but it's so worth it. Most things seem to play and also mp4 videos play well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer App for Kindle video playback 9 Jan 2014
By KJ44
Verified Purchase
This is the first app I've actually bought. DLNA works and is fast. Add the "Vitamio Plugin ARMv7" and it decodes everything you can throw at it. It has a hardware decoder option that is fast but stutters on some formats. so switch to software and it works fine.

I'd give it 10 stars if I could, it's that good. Try the free app at first if you like, to confirm it works, but this app deserves to be bought.

free download that allows me to stream media from home media server to kindle, did require the vitamio plugin ARMv7 to access all file types but works adequately for my needs.
