Hi,

I like to use Lima as Mediadevice and run movies etc on my new Sony Android TV X85C. When will you support the app on this Android TV?

Thanks

Hello everyone,

The Lima mobile app is a Chromecast-enabled app so you can cast media with your Android TV.

Just tap the Cast-button and use your mobile device to stream your favorite media to the big screen.

Best.

Hello Karin,

Is Lima team working on a new version of Lima App for iOS that doesn't need to be always on top and screen unlocked to be able to cast on chromecast ?

Moreover, transfer rate is far to slow to play Full HD or even some 720P movies, is the team working on that issue ?

Hi,

I've extracted the APK from my smart phone to use it on Sony TV. It works fine other than the fact that the VDO player's controls do not drop down and take up good part of the screen :-(

If only that could be fixed...

I agree with this, I tried using on my android tv hoping I could use my media library for plex, etc. but it wouldnt work. Im struggling to find a way to use Lima other than simple file sharing between my computers.
