Cast Streaming Video from my phone
« on: September 16, 2014, 08:51:40 PM »
Ok, here is my question. I have the app on my HTC One (M8) phone. I installed the new Amazon Prime app and, while the app works fine, I cannot seem to get it to cast. So, what is the very best app that will cast ANY streaming video I have on my phone to my TV. By that I mean what 3rd party app puts the little chromecaster box on the video I am watching, or anything else the phone has on its screen?

I'm not aware of any app that can do that. I have amazon prime instant video and it doesn't cast, but apparently will do at some point in the future. As far as I know it is up to individual app developers to add chromecast functionality

I'm not positive, but I think if you go into the hamburger menu in the chromecast app and select cast screen, then open the Amazon app it should cast whatever is on your screen. I believe I did this once and it was not a completely satisfactory experience, but it did cast.

I tried this last night with Amazon Music, and yes it does cast, but the sound is really choppy. I gave up. I hope Amazon add Chromecast support as rumoured.
