How does it Work?

Watch any web-video, online movie, livestream or live tv show on your LG Smart TV. Enjoy the show on your big screen with the no#1 web video streamer. With Video & TV Cast for LG Smart TV you can browse the web and stream any web video, online movie, livestream or live tv show you want on your LG Smart TV. Mp4, m3u8, hls livestreams and also video-over-https are supported. There is no time limit at all! You can watch videos of 2 minutes or 2 hours or even more. Just open Video & TV Cast, navigate to a website, wait for link detection and send the video with a single tap to your LG Smart TV. The discovered link will be shown below the browser. A tap on the link will start the show. You don't need to install a big media server like Plex or any other third party software. >>> Important Notes * To enable video casting please open the LG App Store (LG Smart World / LG Content Store) on your TV, search for 'TV Cast' and install the companion app. * Please enter the ip-address of your iPhone/iPad by using the number pad and up/down/left/right keys on your TV Remote or scroll wheel on your Magic Remote. Just enter the numbers, no need to press the enter key. * iTunes movies, Flash video and DRM protected videos like Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, DirecTV, Xfinity, HBO now are not supported! * Please test your favorite videos with the free edition before upgrading! * Please use the hardware remote of your LG for controlling the TV app and video playback. * The app streams only the video part of a website and not the whole website content (No screen or tab mirroring!). * Sometimes it is necessary to play the video on your iPad or iPhone first before it gets discovered by the app for streaming. It may also be neccessary to start casting multiple times until it works with specific videos. * If a specific video is not working, please check the FAQ on the app startpage. If that does not help you, please drop us an email before leaving a negative comment on the App Store. We will try to add support for that website as soon as possible. >>> UPGRADE FEATURES (available as in-app purchases) * Premium Edition: Unlocks all of the features listed here. Also future features are included, so you do not have to pay for them when they are released in an updated app version. * Remote Playbar: Use the Playbar for advanced video control while browsing, including video scrubbing, forward, rewind, play, pause, stop. The playbar works on all LG Smart TVs. * Local Videos: Cast your camera roll videos from an iPhone or iPad. Supports mp4, m4v and mov videos that were saved to the camera roll via Apples SD-Card/USB Adapter, iTunes Desktop Software or third party apps. * Ad-Blocker: Blocks ads & popups on most websites and removes the sponsoring ads from the app. You can update and enable/disable ad-blocking at any time in the settings. * Bookmarks: Save unlimited website bookmarks. Synchronize and transfer them between different TV Cast apps and iOS devices by using backup and restore via iCloud. * Desktop Mode: Change the browser user-agent and cloak your iPhone/iPad as a desktop PC to load the desktop website instead of a mobile website. Please note that this will NOT enable video casting on websites that serve Flash videos in desktop mode.

  • once in a while it works

    By absjr
    The number of annoying things about this app is too high to cover them all. You have to use the browser within the app to get to your video. If you have a long URL that you can’t copy (eg, in subscription sites) you have to retype into the app’s browser. It will not work with live streams. The popup that asks you to choose video quality makes the video stop playing, which prevents the app from connecting. Then another popup appears immediately (before you can get the video restarted) asking if it’s working, which again overrides video controls. The “Is it working” popup tells you to wait at least 30 sec before hitting retry; why not wait the 30 seconds before popping up?? If you chose the “free” version, ads will pop up that REQUIRE you to sign up with credit card for something before you can close them. I went for the premium version and the best I can say is that I got it to work once. Spend your money on a TV streaming device that allows you to mirror your small screen instead.
  • Works perfectly when you learn how to use it

    By Sydthkid18
    This app is great but it’s not self explanatory. The negative reviews are from users that likely did not get it to work to its full potential (the casting is not just limited to the web browser within the app, you can cast any sort of streaming app to the TV). I wanted to provide advice for how I was able to use it. To cast an app (ie HBO, Netflix, etc.): - connect phone to TV using the IP address instructions - exit this app and go to the app you want to watch a show on - launch video within that app - click on the casting symbol (usually in the top right corner when the video is launched) - click view Airplay devices, and select your TV from the list The video should launch on your TV, and you should be free to use your phone for other things. Hopefully this is helpful, don’t give up on the app too early! As long as you don’t mind an ad or two before your video connects, the free version works just fine.
  • Worst excuse for a piece of software

    By Prof5833
    I’d give less than one star, but..., not available. A 1,000th of a star would be TOO much. Every time I try this app before watching a program it jumps to selling stuf (actually another 4 letter word with the same first letter). It just recycles ad after ad after ad and never launches program. THEN - if it does “start to cast” the TV then infinitely buffers. Oh is it the TV ? Right - you work with LG to lock up the service, so it is expected that this is a tech integration that should would - no? I get it it’s free and they want to make money. However, the people behind this app should be embarrassed to tell anyone what they do. I bet you only hire the dumb bunny engineers. Or, you are - like - fake? How could one trust buying the paid version, when the trial just so completely lame!
  • Does the job

    By Damette
    It’s not particularly easy to start with the wall of text when you open the app, but once you get through that, set up is simple enough. And although it works I do have to re-try casting at least twice with each video to get it to initially start. Plus if the show has a commercial break I have to recast after each one. It’s just frustrating when you’re trying to do something around the house to keep having to come back and restart. But you get what you pay for. This does the job and in the end, that’s the most important thing....
  • Too difficult, too many ads, have to pay for features

    By Lenny904
    Title pretty much sums it up. They claim to have an ad blocker but you have to pay $7 for premium to turn it on. As it is there’s way too many ads. It will work to stream a video from phone to smart tv, but it’s just too time consuming to consistently do so. Want to fast forward or rewind? Well there’s a playbar that may allow you to do that but you have to pay for that feature too. If the app was better designed I’d gladly pay $7, but having to type in different IP addresses every time you open/close app is just idiotic. I would give app 3 stars based on it doing what it claims, but ads and inconvenience drop it 1 star. Do better!
  • Best app

    By GailTirso
    I don’t know why this only has star rating of 3.3?! Y’all have to give this guys some excellent credit for connecting wirelessly. I love this app and I use it 24/7 cuz my kids love watching movie so it makes it super easy for me. And on top of that, I can play her movie and still watch my own movie or just simply using other apps. This app is certainly a life saver, and if I could rate this a 10 I would do so. Thank you for making an awesome app that does what it’s supposed to do.
  • Everything works - It’s “ok” for an app

    By Aero-93
    All the features do work. Sometimes the instructions aren’t 100% clear but after some trial and error it’s easy to understand the app. It does feel pretty dated though and I feel that’s where its not quite as user friendly as it could be. Unfortunately it’s pretty much the only option out there on the App Store. Shame LG doesn’t make an up to date app with all the same abilities. LG does make an app but it’s also not very user friendly, a little dated and lacks some of the key capabilities this app has.
  • Almost Perfect App!

    By Astronomy Buff
    This app does a five star job casting videos to your compatible smart TV. I am downgrading it to four stars because of two deficiencies. It requires you to manually enter your iPhone or iPad IP address every time you use a different device. It's a small but annoying deficiency. The TV app needs to be updated to remember several device IP's, and scan for the active device on launch. It also doesn't display stills from the device photo library, a major omission.
  • Works great with MotoGP

    By davey987
    Only gripe I have is the directional pad on the remote changes the IP address fields both during video playback and setup for the LG TV WebOS app. This causes you to reconfigure after video playback. A minor annoyance. It would be great if the dpad would rewind and fast forward during playback. So this isn’t the correct forum to complain, but the LG App Store doesn’t allow reviews. And the app developer didn’t ask for reviews to improve the app.
  • Just uninstalled it

    By The Myriad
    This app works but not very well. It’s riddled with ads and slow. When the video finally does show up on screen it’s cloudy and hard to make out. It’s like this app literally took your small video and expanded it keeping the terrible quality on a large screen. I’ve heard the paid version isn’t much better either. This app needs extreme improvement before I’ll even bother giving it a second shot. It’s easier to just use your phone or even the TV itself, since both are fully capable of using browsers and watching videos. The connection is a hassle and I don’t recommend it.
