ASUSTOR has been busy updating their NAS software all around, but with a special focus on the media part. Playing movies and tv shows is becoming a bigger part of users life every day and the solutions to do so become easier as well. ASUSTOR already had a pretty good coverage on the area with AirPlay support, KODI and XMBC media players, as well as UPnP and DLNA streaming. But one had been missing so far and that was the official Chromecast support.
That is not an issue anymore as the new AiVideos mobile app now supports Chromecast multimedia streaming playback, bringing the big screen entertainment experience to the last few ASUSTOR users who couldn’t already enjoy it. After linking with Chromecast, AiVideos turns into a remote control allowing users to pause, fast-forward, adjust the volume and even configure subtitles at the touch of a finger.
“Although consumers are relying on their mobile device more than ever before, many are still not satisfied with watching videos on a small screen,” said Steve Huang, Product Manager at ASUSTOR. “We are very excited to be adding Chromecast support to ASUSTOR NAS, allowing videos on our devices to be streamed and played on bigger screens and bringing our users a more satisfying digital entertainment experience.”
The new version of AiVideos is first available for Android and can be downloaded or updated from Google Play. Users should also use the newest version of LooksGood (1.0.0.r1220) in conjunction with the newest version of AiVideos in order to enjoy Chromecast support.
