AllCast pushes locally stored videos and photos to various AirPlay/DLNA connected devices such as Smart TVs, the Xbox 360 (and the Xbox One), Roku boxes, and, originally, the Chromecast. Ultimately, Google released an update that broke AllCast's Chromecast support. But the company finally released the Google Cast SDK yesterday, and then, after getting prodded by a member of the Google Chomecast team to re-add support for Chromecast, Koushik Dutta returned the functionality to his app in supposedly under 20 minutes of work.
- Chromecast support! (Requires new Google Play Services 4.2.34)
- Better song info when playing music on DLNA or Roku
- Power/wake leak fixes
- Better photo support for DLNA
- Fix for duplicate device entries in list
- Fix crash on start
- Fix AllCast running and eating battery when YouTube or Netflix are in use
To enjoy this reunion, you need AllCast version 18.104.22.168 and Google Play Services 4.2.34. Hopefully this is just the beginning. We look forward to seeing what pops up on our TV screens next.
