#199 Daily dose: An app to cast your videos to tv


Chromecast, AirPlay and the like are great, but not all services support them, which is where an app like Tubiocomes in.

The app lets you cast web videos and music from your phone or tablet to your smart TV and other smart devices, including Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Nexus Player, Android TV, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

It also works with some older smart TVs which support DLNA/UPnP/AllShare, but may not come with an easy built-in casting solution.

Just head to the video or audio you want using Tubio’s built-in browser and hit the cast button. It’s as simple as Chromecast, but more far-reaching. Although we can’t be sure it will work with all website video content, it certainly widens your options.

Tubio also works with locally stored content and you can keep using your phone as normal once you start streaming, without interrupting the content.

The app is free, but for $2.99/£2.49 you can get rid of adverts and unlock HD playback (where supported).
