How does it Work?

Watch any web-video, online movie, livestream or live tv show on your Samsung Smart TV or Blu-ray Player. Enjoy the show on your big screen with the no#1 web video streamer. With Video & TV Cast for Samsung Smart TV you can browse the web and stream any web video, online movie, livestream or live tv show you want on your Samsung 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 Samsung 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 Samsung App Store (Smart Hub) on your TV or Blu-ray Player, search for 'TV Cast' and install the receiver app. * Please enter the ip-adress of your iPhone/iPad by using the number pad and up/down/left/right keys on your Samsung TV Remote. Just enter the numbers, no need to press the enter key. * iTunes movies, Flash video and other DRM protected videos like HBO now are not supported! * Please test your favorite videos with the free edition before upgrading! * Please use the Remote Playbar for video control while browsing (see more info below) * 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 Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray Players. You can also use the included TV Remote for basic video control (play, pause, stop, forward and rewind videos) and navigating in Samsung Smart Hub. The TV Remote currently works on 2010 - 2013 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. * Change Homepage: Set your personal homepage in the settings.

  • Difficult to start but once you get the hang of it

    By dborg55
    Downloaded for the iPhone version and it was a little bit difficult to actually figure it out but once I learned, no problem. I actually cannot figure out why people complain so much when it was a little difficult to start yes but once I figured it out it has been smooth sailing. I just wonder if it is the attention span of today’s millennial’s. They want everything done, now. Oh wait no I’m sorry they wanted done now now now. My only complaint is high is at the lower end of high definition when playing on TV cast. But I am definitely pleased that’s why I gave it a four star. I am now trying to figure out how to play my saved videos on my phone and yes someone could teach me but it’s better that I learn on my own.
  • Needs lots of work

    By BurnsBattery
    This app does not work as expected. My intent was to watch Home videos taken on my iPhone, and screen share / cast them to a Samsung smart tv - something that *should* be as simple as FaceTime, right ? Wrong! The app will disconnect from the tv, as soon as you switch to your video and start play, so no luck there. Second option - Using the app Menu, then find your home video. It tells you that only the last three videos taken can be watched with the free version of the app ! I guess the in-app purchase is now required. So I tried one - result: no sound, and the video does not rotate to match the orientation of the Home video. So you sit on the couch with your head cocked sideways, with no sound. Also, the app must upload your video to a web service to “optimize” it, which means they now have a copy of your content. This process creates a web link url, so now you are streaming it to the TV app. This is not “screen casting” or mirroring at all ! It is uploading from the phone app, and downloading to the TV app ! Also / biggest pain ever is the whole “enter IP address “ nonsense . Hello Developers - it’s called multicast, or broadcast, or DNS lookup - there are many choice to find devices on the same layer 2 network without asking users to type in numbers they don’t understand. It should be as simple as FaceTime. Go back to the beginning and start over on your device discovery subroutines.
  • Have to connect 📺 &📱2 WiFi

    By LHale0121
    You have to connect your phone and tv to WiFi to even use anything in this app.... can’t even use the remote without connecting both tv and phone to WiFi. Would be better if they offered a way for u to use the phone as tv remote without having to connect to WiFi like other apps do! I have used multiple other apps and was able to use the remote control on my phone without connecting to anything. But I understand a lot of new phones aren’t able to do it anymore. That’s y I got the phone I did in January when I upgraded so I would still b able to have the capability to connect phone to tv without WiFi. I live on a mountain and WiFi is not available here. Well it is available.... I’ve tried 3 different ones including at&t, Hughes net, and 1 other and none work very well where I live and all were literally as slow or slower than old dial up where ya plugged the cord into house phone jack 😂So sorry to make this so long I jus wish yal wud make it available to use, atleast the remote part of the app if u can’t do it for the mirroring too?? Maby connect via Bluetooth or something idk... hopefully yal will make the app available for those of us who aren’t able to use WiFi! If the apps updated to where I can use without wifi I will rate 5 stars
  • Waste of time in today’s world

    By M.G. Dawsin
    All I can say is I’m super happy that I didn’t pay a dime for this. I don’t like being required to download an app which has been specifically designed to ensure that customers cannot use their own technology the way they want to. In a nutshell, this app allows you to play videos from your camera roll and videos that meet specific criteria, which can only be accessed through a search bar actually built into the app itself. There is no real web-browser feature and no real screen-casting ability at all. If you want that, you’ll need to go buy another app from Samsung or someone else. FYI: All cellphones have very easy-to-use screen casting abilities built into the operating system. This garbage app for Samsung TVs simply limits everything that other devices do natively in today’s world for the sake of nickle and dime-ing customers for functionality that shouldn’t have to be paid for. My advice? Just buy an AppleTV or Chromecast. They do everything that Samsung Smart TVs can do, and more, on any TV at all, without charging again and again for functions that you should have anyway.
  • Problems but worth it sometimes

    By ViviMindee
    It’s honestly a great app when it works properly. It can be confusing to start at first but it’s worth the try! I’ve casted many many videos just by watching one ad before hand and it runs smoothly. However, there’s times where the video doesn’t cast at all, or while casting a video it will crash or the app will crash, it’s kind of frequent, but it’s the best free app I’ve found so far for Samsung tv casting. Anyways, once that’s fixed or solutions are proposed, it’s a great app I would consider actually paying for.
  • TLDR: Useless download

    By JDMZ32
    Samsung makes things incredibly difficult. The screen mirroring on my Samsung “smart” TV doesn’t work and never once has, so I downloaded their recommended phone app I’m reviewing here. Once you download the free app, it immediately fills the screen to ask you to spend money on a pricey subscription. If you want to stream a show on an app, for example because your 2 y/o “smart” Samsung TV doesn’t update or allow you to add apps, this app doesn’t allow it. It gives you the option to cast the last 3 videos on your phone, but I didn’t bother trying so I can’t tell you if that works. If you want to cast older videos, you’ll pay for it. Nowhere in the overcomplicated app is an option to stream a show/movie from an app. Once you leave this app, it immediately disconnects from your TV every time. Samsung puts so much work into making their products look useful when unfortunately they’re all useless beyond your basic needs.
  • Awesome simple and very convenient

    By If you aint 1st your last
    There are a ton of free websites that have free movies that allow you to stream, and this app doesn’t slow down my internet at all! When I use iPhone or iPad mirroring, I always notice that it has a huge impact on everyone in the house and a lot of time I experience lag trying to play a movie. I have a very nice router with mesh coverage, my average speed is 75 mbs. This app is so easy to use with the built in browser and the app on my Samsung smart TV there’s no middle man. I highly recommend this for all iOS users that have newer Samsung TV’s. I am sure if I had a Samsung phone (never) no 3rd party app is needed, but until Apple starts to make 4K OLED televisions under millions of dollars, LOL, this is a great tool and time saver! 👍🏻👍🏻
  • Waste of your time!!!

    By SilasTheTruth
    This app needs a ridiculous amount of work. Nothing works as it intended and I did go through the tutorials to make sure I was operating correctly. And every app or add on that should be really simple and work they want you to pay some money for to use, that’s absolutely ridiculous just pulled up to the app that you said it was in make it happen. These developers need to stop trying to get a quick money grab in create a decent app/free app like so many other developers and people will start buying premium items, that is if the base app actually works correctly, which unfortunately this app doesn’t at all it doesn’t even come close. With all the apps out there that can do casting why is this on such a disappointment. Developer stop trying to go a quick money grab an actually create something and then maybe more than 540 people downloaded.
  • Best app i could find so far

    By Fikx73
    Okay, I see lots of negative feedbacks here. I don’t understand. This is only app in market which auto-detects videos on websites(saves me for movies online stored on OpenLoad). It bypasses all ads and auto loads video embed url. Also, I couldn’t find any other app with integrated ad blocker. It asks you every time if you want to open or block popup, so you don’t have to bother with crappy ads from which you can’t go backwards to your content. TV app needs to be installed, but as soon as it’s ran, phone finds TV’s IP without problems. Great app anyways, keep up good work devs.
  • Apple iPhone 8 IOS 11.0.3

    By Happylovingthisapp
    I was so disappointed that I almost uninstalled this app when it kept crashing when IOS version updated.... but THE DEVELOPERS OF THIS APP ARE AMAZING!!!! The most recent update bug fix resolved my issues, and I am back to casting ALL the shows and movies I love. Best thing is this is free to cast, and being able to do so I am saving myself the cost of an Apple TV, or fire stick, etc. I WOULD GLADLY HELP THE DEVELOPERS TEST FROM A CUSTOMERS PERSPECTIVE. I look forward to any and every update with this app. and to the developers.... YOU ARE THE BEST!!!! KEEP UP THE AMAZING TECHNICAL WORK! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR HARD WORK AND MOST RECENT UPDATE!!
