App description• Cast YouTube videos
• Cast media content from your android device
• Play local media files on your Raspberry Pi
• Play streams from playlists (m3u, pls) on your Raspberry Pi
You just need a Raspberry Pi with a running SSH-Server, the omxplayer and optional a little image viewer. I only tested it with Raspbian, but there is no reason why it shouldn't work on other distributions.
• Controllable via a seekbar
• Hardware volume buttons
• Support for multiple audio and subtitle (srt-format) streams
• To cast YouTube videos to your Raspberry Pi just open the YouTube app and a video and choose "Share" → Raspicast.
• To play streams just copy a playlist (m3u or pls format) to your android device and open the list via the app, or play the streams manually from the actionbar.

When, as I imagine many will know, using a Pi Zero with the intention of streaming videos, say from YouTube, is useless because of the Ram capacity on its board. However, using Raspicast to directly cast from the app on my phone to the pi zero connected to my 21inch tv it works, and has a crystal clear picture and no buffering issues or freezes so far - spectacular eh. So that is my use of this app. Nevertheless, one star is lacking from 5 because it would be nice to have a few more functions.
Very cool app! Would be nice to be able to add extra file types/extensions.
Very good app, please add screen mirror.
Works well for everything from YouTube, except music and songs. Music is the main reason I installed it, and they don't seem to stream. I tried other things, including peppa pig, and they worked. A fix would bring this to 5 stars, making it easily one of the best streaming tools for pi.
Nice app. You can only control the volume if the app is open unlike cromacast. It would be nice to adjust the volume even during screen saver on. Maybe update this function in an update in the future.
Very unstable. Rarely I can play a whole video before program crashes.
Very nice app, makes simple rpi as cast alternative. Some YouTube video are not playing
Works great on pie but if you have a phone that runs CFW on ICS then forget it. Will not display Cast tab can not stream from my sd card but it's ok with youtube.
It works well with YouTube but i hope they add a feature by which you can cast other streaming services via this app.
Not all content can be casted to rpi with this app. I was expecting screen casting option, but wasn't there
Firefox Browser Extension needed
Good app. Can you please make an option for sending an arbitrary command such as youtube-dl so that I can play music alone
Handy app, i spend a lot of time using my rasberry pi 4.
Very nice application, with recent update volume buttons are not working
Thank you for this app. Edit: Damnit! After the last update the app doesn't work anymore for me...I shouldn't have updated it.
