CastOn TV Receiver Premium
10 - 50 downloadsAdd this app to your lists
Here comes an app that runs in a set-top box and creates a special "channel" that you can share contents from the phone or PC. Just get Wifi connected, start the PlayOn TV Receiver app, and you are ready to go! Send movies stored or found in your smartphone to play on the TV screen, using the touch screen as a remote.
This APK is the paid version that removes the expiration in the trial version and has more sophisticated error handling. Please test compatibility for your device using the free version first.
PlayOn TV Receiver is UPNP compatible. It can be remote controlled by most UPNP/DLNA apps as a usual UPNP renderer capable of streaming video, audio and photo data over a Wifi network. But that's not all - CastOn TV Receiver does a great deal more if it is driven by its sibling app CastOn TV. It becomes a remote-controlled launcher that allows many things happen (and more to come) on a big screen with the convenience of a touch-screen handset. Here are the highlights:
1. Cast web pages and PDF documents.
Send your favorite web pages or PDF documents to the TV. PlayOn TV Receiver will function as a web or PDF viewer launched and controlled from your phone!
2. Support for playlist for video and audio.
Prepare your own "program" before you sit down and watch. You will still be able to insert a clip to play immediately, and in that case the playlist will resume after the clip is done. PlayOn TV Receiver maintains a shared queue for requests from different phones so that a group can truly share. This cannot be done w/ apps that keep the playlist in the handset.
3. Allow for continuous TV monitoring without a full-time connection.
You can do fast forward, backward, pause, cancel from your phone and monitor playback status of the TV on your phone at any time. But you don't have to stay with your controller app. Just go do other things as you want and when you come back, it will be as if the connection is still on.
CastOn TV places no restriction on what type of media formats you can play. It will play whatever the system or hardware plays. It can even play formats that are not supported by the system in a native manner by invoking 3rd party players (our favorite helper video player is MX Player, for example).
Video streaming is demanding on the network. For 720P video streaming your network should have sustainable bandwidth > 200KB/s and for 1080P video double the bandwidth. A congested office WiFi, for example, is not good for a UPNP application. There is no need to try it.
Recommended system: 1 GHz ARM A9 core (dual core preferred), .512 MB RAM. Android 2.3+ (Android 4.0 preferred).
