Tubecast developer Webrox has just released a new streaming media app Playcast for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
Unlike his Tubecast app the app is aimed at local and cloud media (video, songs and pictures) and not Youtube video, but like that app it supports streaming to a variety of receivers including Chromecast, Chromecast Audio, Apple TV (AirPlay), DLNA Smart TV, Internet Box, XBOX One, XBOX 360. The app can work in the background, meaning you can start a video playing and then use your phone for other purposes, and it will even streaming a video from OneDrive to your TV.
The app has just had its first update in the Windows Store, taking it to version 0.7.4.0.
The update brings:
- “RPC” bug fixed
- Few minor bug fixes
The developer has also acknowledged an unfixed bug affecting the Apple TV where the connection can drop when long videos or audio files are streamed. This should however be addressed in short order.
See screen shots of the app below:
The app is $3.99 with a fully-functional week-long free trail and can be found in the Windows Store here.
