Product Description

CastOn is a DLNA/UPNP-compatible player that casts media contents from your tablet/phone to TV. It may also cast contents from 3rd party apps via their share link.

CastOn requires a Wifi network and a UPNP/DLNA compatible TV or set-top box. If you do not already have a DLNA TV, consider upgrading the TV using the HDMI Dongle at www.web2mytv.com, or install the the CastOn server app CastOn Receiver on the set-top box.

Using CastOn is really easy - select the TV screen to play on, then select the content to play. There are more sophisticated short-cuts as you will discover, but the simplest way is always there and it works. Soon you will find out that you can set the sound volume of the TV with the volume button on your handset; you can move forward and backward by swiping left and right on the preview pane; and similarly, you can switch between remote and local screens by swiping up and down on the preview pane. If you are even more adventurous, get the CastOn Receiver on your Android set-top box to experience using your phone as a Wifi remote with keyboard and voice functions, and use playlist, bookmarks, and live web pages on TV!

CastOn also works with the share link of 3rd party apps. For example, you can use a drawing app like Picasso to create a picture and share it to TV by selecting Share and then pick CastOn to handle the request. It is a great way to entertain the kids!

As a UPNP/DLNA-compatible player, CastOn can cast most audio, video, and photo formats onto TV using a common home Wifi network. But that is not all - CastOn's capability goes far beyond these DLNA "basics" if it is paired with CastOn Receiver, a set-top box app that is also available on Google Play. With the matching receiver, you will discover the following additional unique features:

1. Cast web pages - share web contents on TV, play media web contents using the included remote control.

2. Create a shared playlist for video and audio - prepare your own "program" before you sit down and watch. Note that the program is shared, unlike in most other apps where the program or playlist is kept only in the handset.

3. Monitor and control the TV without a full-time connection - CastOn can be put on background to allow you to use other applications such as reading emails. CastOn will still display the current progress of playback as if it was running continuously.

If you have any feedback or comments feel free to contact us at support@web2mytv.com.

I wanted something that would play music from my kindle fire hd to my dlna tv. Tried a few apps but they either would not work out would only play vids. Very pleased with this.

I am being kind and giving this 2 stars.
The app is poorly designed in that tracks are not sorted by album, artist etc and this just presents a long list in aphabetical order.
Next when the app is run it does not identify itself as a media server like any good DLNA / UPNP app should, thereby allowing DLNA / UPNP device to browse the media library, and finally although my media DLNA player is identified from my android device and when I try playing an app the DLNA device thinks something is coming, nothing plays!
I will stick to Bubble UPNP.

This is the only DNLA app that works every time with my Sony Bravia t.v. The other apps of this kind that I tried were always hit and miss.
