It's been quiet... too quiet. That's cause I've been working on new features (and probably making new bugs as a result, derp):

There's a new split view tablet UX. Can browse/control media playback on one screen when in landscape mode.

Photos are way easier to cast now with a new swipey UI. And slideshow mode was added to boot.

Ever get interrupted during a cast when the pizza guy calls? The cast will now pause automatically! (thanks bekit)

Fellow gaming nerds rejoice, this version of AllCast supports casting! This will work on Chromecast, Apple TV, and Roku. Fire TV and the AllCast receiver coming soon too! DLNA, unfortunately, can not be supported.

To browse the new Twitch feed in your side drawer, make sure you have the Twitch app installed. Only live feeds are supported at the moment.

I also fixed a bunch of more Roku bugs. 4/19/2014

  • Oh, hello! I did not see you there. I've been playing too much Hearthstone lately. Fun!

  • Boring:

  • Roku fixes. Album art, stop button fix.

  • Cool:

  • Google Music now sees AllCast devices as Cast targets! Check out AllCast settings to enable this. It's awesome (req. root).

  • HEADPHONE HOOK OMG. I'm not even going to tell you what this is. I'll just link a video: Currently this only works w/ Fire TV and AllCast Receiver.

Oh, and there's a new AllCast Receiver.

Some users were saying they'd start playing something on their FireTV or their Smart TV, and nothing would happen. I told them it was just a matter of motivation, and they just needed to ask the TV nicely. That wasn't entirely true. Turns out there was a bug in my DLNA media playback code. But be nice to your TV anyways. And brush your teeth.

People do crazy things like use Windows Media Player to share media, and tether their chromecast to their phones! I accidentally broke those in a past update :(

But I fixed them. Please accept my apologies. And this update. And this cookie. 4/19/2014
