Good work on the app update. The new video player is a huge improvement. One question, how do you change streaming options?

oh no, all my movies say error url not found when I try to play them on my iPhone, they were working fine before the update :(  the tv shows seem to play ok and the movies still play fine through my browser at work. Music is also getting the same error on iPhone.

 

all my tv shows are mp4  and all my movies are Full DVD rips to Video_TS folders.

Seems like there is an issue with DVD rips, I will look into it.

What are the steps to getting this to work with Chromecast?  Don't see anything in the options about this...

I'm no expert but I would guess you select the movie on you iPhone and then click the remote button and select your chrome cast from the list, I will be trying it when I get home today.

I dont see my Chomecast in the remote list.  Just the DLNA enabled devices and other MB clients (web or MBC)

 

If I open the Chromecast app it works fine and can find the chromecast.

I have updated it on my iPhone 4s too - but notice that I can not see any movie / series. It does show me that the latest movies and also one movie which I have stopped in the middle want to continue at the same time where it stopped. I notice that once I do start see the Data Connection seems sending Data to the phone which stops after 5 - 10 seconds.

 

Could be the reason for this that I have not yet updated the Server Version yet?

A good buddy of mine was waiting on this............can anyone record some of this in action on an iPad? If it meets his approval, he'll buy it instantly.

 

Edit: NVM, I see there's no iPad version yet.

OK, I tried it.. it works great... on iPhone, select movie and then remote, then selec your chromecast from the list. My Chromecast showed up.

My buddy already has it on iPhone, but he 'requires' a native iPad version. He owns an iPad just for HTPC use.
