  • (2020-01-09) Jon VanRyn: Always had a great experience with this extension. Works perfectly with the Android app for remote use when casting. Only ever had one issue, quickly corrected with a FAQ. Went premium long ago, worth every penny. A+ work and support.
  • (2020-01-05) Mr. Sandman: Broken garbage, this extension is just a link to download a videostream app. save the frustration and get a different program.
  • (2019-12-24) Stefan Milic: hasn't worked for 6 months, the "chrome app" just prompts you to their homepage and the desktop app doesn't work for windows 10 as it can't connect to localhost.
  • (2019-12-21) Victor Dahlberg: At the moment, this plugin gets 2 stars. After the update, the plugin shortcut no longer works - it just forwards the user to the "Get Videostreamer for Chromecast" site, despite uninstalling and installing the plugin several times. I'm able to launch the plugin through the desktop shortcut, however they have also changed the GUI for loading media files - the new interface is not userfriendly at all, PLEASE at least provide an option to browse for files using Windows Explorer. Also - Add and drop support for media files, would really make things easier.
  • (2019-12-15) marc wezdecki: VS used to be my go to app for casting videos. Now, it's trash.
  • (2019-11-29) TJL: Doesn't launch Videostream, simply opens tab to download stand alone app, which I already have. Useless!
  • (2019-11-17) Karlo Don: era perfetto, ho fatto la premium anni fa. ora non va piu' su Ubuntu (da +PC) non so da win ma non ci siamo proprio
  • (2019-11-15) Booster85dk: not working again!!! don't buy it
  • (2019-11-04) Miranda van den Hurk: Na een windows update, helaas niet meer werkend te krijgen.
  • (2019-10-18) Mark Wiggers: Sadly, videostream does not work anymore.it gives an error. a lot of people are reporting this issue.
  • (2019-10-05) Adam Borg: Worked perfectly in the beginning but now it´s nothing but errors all the time, haven't been able to stream anything in the last couple of months
  • (2019-10-05) David Hill: 5 stars to 1 star. Completely broken, don't bother.
  • (2019-09-18) Jerrod Kaplan: Literally all this does is open getvideostream.com. Which accomplishes nothing.
  • (2019-08-18) James Busch: Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Times out connecting to chromecast and gives in incorrect error code regarding the windows 10 firewall. Too bad, it's quite pretty.
  • (2019-08-11) Hora Taka: Única problema que vc precisa instalar toda vez que for usar, não existe um atalho ou algo do tipo para abrir o programa, no mais ele funciona bem.
  • (2019-07-23) BENJAMIN NEU: This app used to be so awesome. Now's a giant turd. I paid for pro...now I regret it. What a waste.
  • (2019-07-05) Rej Leatherman: See above -- but in a nutshell -- after installation, it doesn't actually launch VS. It takes you to the installation web page. Huh?
  • (2019-06-16) Josh Norris: Used to love this app, now the extension just takes me to the Videostream website, I am unable to get it to run after buying premium and using it for 3-4 years. VS offer no official support but are happy to take your money. Going to see if I can find another service now had an absolute gutful with the build quality of this app plummeting after taking my money.
  • (2019-06-07) Leon Van kessel: Doesn't work anymore
  • (2019-05-22) Marc Langlais: useless
  • (2019-05-20) Jesper Nørgaard: Used to work fine. Now: Just a blurry screen when trying to either cast or load video.
  • (2019-05-14) Johnny Ramrod: To be clear, Videostream is still an EXCELLENT program. I am a premium user and LOVE it. This addin, however, no longer works. People on here complaining about the program are confusing the two. I believe this is to do with the security/add in changes made in Chrome. Now, I'd LOVE the devs to fix this - the quick launch is nice. But don't confuse that with the app itself, which is still the best streaming app I've ever used. Oh, and sure the button no longer works, but given the app is still there I just created a task bar shortcut, which works just fine. Not perfect, and I'd like this to work, but lets not confuse a plugin that no longer works with the security rearchitecture of plugins with the actual app... This plugin was only ever a LAUNCHER.
  • (2019-04-30) Pamela V.: me gusta esta app pero ya no funciona,
  • (2019-04-28) Barking News: Thats it, downloaded desktop version and all broke ! This extension used to be enough to start playing videos, and drop in files to playlist was possible and didn't need to have desktop file installed it used to start player form extension. Now all f up badly, wish I wasn't updating as it was ideal for years ! many years no isue and reliable, now updated to hell. Nothing works as it shoud.
  • (2019-04-27) Amanpreet Saini: VS Launcher does not work. Clicking on it ask to install video stream again but works one time only. If you open browser again , extension will again ask you to install.
