Hello,

the ezcast works very well, also with the cube. You can play movies from the nas to the tv with the ezcast and cube. Localcast is a free app to make this work. You can add smb's, so actually the ip address from the nas server and stream movies from that location directly to the ezcast. However you need for this to have the cube on, in case the movie gets out of sync/buffer underrun to fill the buffer again. Further with ezcast app you can show the browser on the tv and stream through youtube. It's a fast access ezcast and it is cheap to get. In chinastore you can get it for like 20 dollars. It's hdmi 1.3 compatible. The resolution you can choose between is either 720p or 1080p. There is also an app called ezcast screen, installing this app on two android devices gives you the opportunity to stream one screen to another. This doens't work with the ezcast however. You don't need android 4.2, i.o.w. cast screen hardware support, so any android version will do with the ezcast. Batterytime is very long watching movies with the ezcast.

 

grtz, Mark

Localcast still is a bit buggy, you can also try xbmc/kodi which you can google and install the arm version. Next find rhe upnp settings in the system/config menu and turn it on. Add a networkaddress of the nas to the video and audio tabs. Leave xbmc/kodi running and install bubbleupnp. Fill in the ezcast/vsspeed as renderer and the xbmc/kodi in the library. Now you can run through your nas files with bubbleupnp and play your movies and music to your ezcast/tv.

Hi there

Instead of Avia you should better use UPnPlay as external player in XBMC (make it the standard player)
To do this you have to edit playercorefactory.xml (on my tablet it is in Android/data/org.xbmc.xbmc/files/.xbmc/userdata)
Filename for UPnPlay is cx.hoohol.silanoid

If you don't have UPnPlay on your phone/tablet you have to install it of cource

When you open a stream now in XBMC, UPnPlay pops up
There you can set the renderer to your EZCast dongle (the notebook sign) and click the URL of the stream
Or you can set the renderer to Andoid Player and pipe to your favorite videoplayer

On my set up this is working for most of the streams from Icefilms etc.

Have fun

 

"I found this on another site, am trying to get it worked now."

You have to download the core file from the net.

 

It works for youtube streaming. Not for streaming from a nas server.

You can better use BubbleUPnP.

also possible to use an old mediaplayer like acryan playonhd 1 as a renderer. Movies can be streamed using the tab and bubbleupnp through the network(pushed) to the acryan, using the right firmware. So that means using the acryan hd as ezcast for analog tv's. You might also be able to use an old satellite receiver as a renderer through the network, am not sure but may very well be possible.
