UPDATE 9/17/16: Now works with tvOS 10.0 update! Please update to the latest version: 1.0.4 of A-Cast Player.

Cast online videos from any mobile device to the new 2015 Apple TV! Use your TV to watch videos that are embedded in webpages.

Install this A-Cast Player app in your Apple TV and install A-Cast app in your mobile device. After you connect the devices to the same Wi-Fi network, launch both apps and add the TV to your mobile device.

NOTE: Please keep this A-Cast Player open in Apple TV when using the A-Cast app.

Browse the web for videos in the A-Cast app and cast them to the A-Cast Player in Apple TV. It's that easy!

After casting the video to this TV app, it will play the video on the TV independent of the mobile app in the mobile device. This is not a screen-mirroring app so you don't need the phone or tablet after casting the video. The video is directly streamed to the TV from the website.

If you see A-Cast Player load the video but not play, please try casting the video again.

You will only be able to cast online videos from webpages and not the videos stored in your device.

Quick Start:
• Install this A-Cast Player in your Apple TV
• Download A-Cast app in your mobile device from appestry.biz
• Connect your mobile device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV
• Open both apps and add the TV to your mobile device in A-Cast app
• Browse the web for your favorite entertainment in A-Cast app
• Play the videos to launch the cast menu
• Keeping this player open, select the Apple TV to cast and voila!
• Enjoy videos on the big screen!!

In the A-Cast app upgrade to A-Cast All-Star Edition (in-app purchase) to watch videos longer than 10 minutes. The upgrade removes the ads at the bottom of the browser. It doesn't remove the ads hosted by the websites you visit.

Please make sure the websites you frequent play in A-Cast Player before upgrading to the All-Star Edition. A-Cast Player only works with A-Cast app.
