The supported file formats are MP4 movie, MP3 audio, HTML5 video, IPTV M3U8 urls, HLS Live Streaming (only Chromecast), 4K and HD where available.

The various streaming devices that are supported are Chromecast 1, 2, and Ultra HD 4K, Amazon FireTV Stick, Apple TV Airplay (4th gen) tvOS 10.2+, Android TV, DLNA receivers, Xbox One, and Google Cast receivers. Kindly note that the app works its best in Chromecast and Google cast receivers. The other streaming devices would have limited functionality.

You can cast to TV, add 2 items in queue at a time, bookmark 1 at a time, play local files(currently only supports mp4 and mp3), cast web videos found online from websites, see the history, and block popups per website using the free version.

Whereas in the pro version you can remove advertisements, watch subtitles (only in Chromecast for now), get custom themes, add more than 2 items in queue, bookmark more than 1, set home page, and sync across devices. You can also access these premium features by watching video ads from the free version.
