  • (2020-09-13) Tony B: It casted the video but takes the screen hostage while it's playing. If I try to go to a different tab or try to scroll on the page, the video instantly stops
  • (2020-08-29) Enrique Rodriguez: the older version was better it would play the next stream automatically
  • (2020-08-23) Pedro Cabral Berumen: The last update was a big mistake, now the information inside the pop-up (to find, add and control videos) doesn´t fit and always have to scroll in horizontal way. But the saddest thing is that now the volume control doens´t exists anymore. I like it before when it was easy to scroll in the queue and the volume option was enabled to use it directly from the extension.
  • (2020-08-15) Yesenia Fontanez: Esta nueva version es totalmente inutil una total basura ya no se puede conectar al chrome cast la version anterior era muchisimo mejor.
  • (2020-07-30) Mehmet AKINCI: iyi
  • (2020-03-27) P N: Maybe I don't know how to use it properly, but I can't make it working on a youtube page, it doesn't accept the Youtube URL of the video.

  • (2020-03-24) Ruby Rendle: does not find any devises to chrome cast on yes i have got chrome cast on my tv's but for some reason it does not pick it up
  • (2020-02-15) George Machun: I was hopeful this would work but it just didn't seem to work at all well. Endless loading but no playing. Too bad it's a great idea.
  • (2020-01-01) Clara P: I thought this would be the answer to all of my issues, however the website I wan't to stream from does not work. The extension says "No compatible videos found on current page, visit any page containing videos you would like to cast.". I know the video isn't compatible with chromecast, that is the point of the extension, to watch the videos that chromecast won't connect to itself.

    Thanks for your great work. Any chance to add compatibility to other cast options, like DLNA or Airplay ?? If you sell as premium option, i want to pay bro. For example, my samsung series 7 don't work with the extension.

  • (2019-05-16, v:0.0.106) Vladimir Dugat: Monetization of browser extensions
    Hello, We are looking for partners with extensions who are interested in installing our SDK extension for Chrome/Opera/Yandex. Our SDK collects anonymously advertisements. Are you interested in the discussion? This can be an additional income for you. We do not compete with any other monetization. All this is compatible and transparent, does not affect the UX speed, surfing speed and user usability. Thanks! -- Kind regards, Vladimir grow.rdd at gmail.com
  • (2019-03-10, v:0.0.106) Carlos Morelli: Live Streaming
    Does it cast live streams? Every time I open a page with a video streaming live, the extension shows a 0 (zero) notification, and if I click on it, the "no compatible videos were found" message appears. The fact that it shows a 0 notification is as if the extension knows that there is a video playing but it's not able to cast it.
  • (2019-03-10, v:0.0.106) David Durgee: does not find video stream to cast on website
    I installed your extension expecting it to be able to cast the video from this website: http://church-redeemer.churchonline.org/ Unfortunately you are not seeing the video stream: No compatible videos found on current page, visit any page containing videos you would like to cast. Make sure to disable Adobe Flash Plugin under: Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Content Settings -> Flash I have disabled Flash, so that is not the problem. Could you take a look at the site and add support for it? The stream will be available several times today, but you will have to wait a few days for it to be available again after that. Dave
  • (2019-03-08, v:0.0.106) Laura Peralta: Stoped working
    I see this was updated recently, but isn't connecting to chromecast as of today. It used to work wonderfully. nice work! Hope you can fix it again.
