  • If I want an app to cast media (such as videos like I tried,) you shouldn't have to pay the first time. You should get at least 1 test to see if you are satisfied. Do not download for video streaming unless you want to pay.

  • Con's you into paying to cast, then when you do pay its an in app purchase so I'm not sure how to get a refund because it doesn't work at all. Incompatible device? Or scam? From my droid turbo.

  • Don't download... Ever... Forced you to pay the charge to use this rubbish app with chromecast but then it just hangs on the loading screen... Gave up after 10 minutes of waiting for a 23 second video to load... Don't download this and definitely don't pay for the in-app rubbish

  • Trying to cast ANY video from dlna server, local sdcard including videos taken on phone fails to cast to chromecast. Audio and picture cast is excellent. Video is NON EXISTENT.

  • I have paid you the in app purchase and unlocked video but now it seems I have lost my purchase and not just my unlocked feature but my money too.. What the hell going on was a fan but this is taking the p*%# now. Crooks in the making

  • I should be able to add and remove media from the DLNA server. I should be able to rename files and perform other edits from my phone. The player and chromecast should accept and play a wider range in media formats.

  • One suggestion though: could you just enable subtitles by default for casting without the need to go through choosing a file, the way it currently works when streaming on own device. In my setup, the subtitle srt file is named exactly as the video file and resides in same directory. Thank you.

  • An impulse purchase to get streaming ability from my WD MyBookLive to my chromecast. It doesn't work. Have tried from my Nexus 7 and my Note 3. I can stream to my tablet or phone from the WD device just fine, but casting just hangs. Also, no sound from some .MKV files. I would like a refund please

  • Lately struggles to stream video...and photo galleries do not refresh, settings are not great (like just show photos I don't need the name etc on-screen). Wish I hadn't bought :( Trying BubbleUpnp instead...

  • Stable but basic. I like the simple navigation. Desperately needs network tools & guidance integrated to help users determine why things aren't working. What resources are required & what's missing. Slowly developing & getting better. Doesn't work with other devices executing Avia on the same network.

  • I have been using this app for the past month on my HTC One m7 for streaming compatible videos to chromecast. The good: it connects to cc fast, no audio sync issues, subtitles work too. The bad: most times the playback will just hang, sometimes 2-3 times in a 30 mins clip. Hopefully the devs will be able to fix this in a future version.

  • Was using a stock Nexus 7 (2013) to chromecast a few shows and it the Avia would disconnect 30 minutes into the shows. Happened 3 times last night. I had to resort to Allcast to continuing watching via the Chromecast without any issues.. Could be a possible bug. Hope it gets fixed.

  • Looks like re-installing the app fixed the thumbnails issue but I did notice that now the Media Database takes a long time to build even with just 5 videos and a handful of images on my phone.

  • Takes forever to connect chromecast, constantly crashing, pausing, audio out of sync, have to force stop app between episodes or it plays the same one over again. Really annoying. Used to be a great app, now can't get through 10 mins w/o issues.

  • I've gone 48 hours without Avia trying to update and request I pay again. Remade all my playlist.. not thrilled that I have to keep doing this but it's working. Seriously though, how hard is it to add an "export playlist to sdcard" option? Why does it save the playlist in /data/ folder anyway and not the /storage/Android/data/? Makes no sense.. 80% of my issues would be resolved with that change.

In-app purchase of $4.99 gives you Chromecast support, casting to Apple TV, Roku, WebOS and UPnP/DLNA enabled devices, access to Dropbox, support for themes and an ad-free interface.


It's been almost a year since Avia's Chromecast release. Chromecast has been a success for Avia, to say the least. To add to the sweetness, we're now supporting casting to Apple TV, Roku and WebOS devices along with an updated UI, icons and themes. Avia 7.2 also offers overall stability improvements. Here are the features of 7.2:

Features:
• Updated user interface with simpler navigation and smoother response
• New icons throughout the app
• Casting to Apple TV
• Casting to Roku devices (need to install Avia for Roku)
• Casting to WebOS enabled TVs
• Improved stability and support for the latest Google Chromecast software
• Full playback control from your phone or tablet
• Music album artwork and artist images displayed on your TV


And of course, Avia still allows you to: Share your photos, videos and music on these devices: Chromecast / Roku / Apple TV / WebOS TV's / Xbox One / Google TV / PC / Mac


Play and manage media stored on your Android device, in the cloud or from these devices: Facebook / Dropbox / Google+ Photos (Picasa) / Network Attached Storage (NAS) / Windows Media Player (WMP) / XBMC / Serviio / Plex / Subsonic / PC / Mac / Other Android Devices


Finally, here are a few pieces of advice to get the most out of Avia:
• To cast to Roku devices, please install the Avia for Roku channel that will appear on your Roku screen.
• Make sure your Android device and device you want to cast to, e.g. Chromecast, are using the same Wi-Fi network.
• When using Avia to access media from other devices, they must have UPnP/DLNA serving enabled.
• When casting from Avia, files MUST be compatible with the receiving device. Many devices have fewer compatible codecs than a home computer.
• Please review your media formats with the specifications of your devices before attempting to cast. (Example: Chromecast is not compatible with .AVI files.) Please see the video conversion guide at http://aviatheapp.com/support.


If you have questions, comments or feedback, please check out our support page at http://aviatheapp.com/support/


If the Chromecast icon is still missing, troubleshoot suggestions are below :
• Reboot WiFi router (optional: change WiFi channel), reset factory settings on Chromecast, rename Chromecast and re-install Avia.
