What’s New in Beamer 3.0

Chromecast

Chromecast support

Beamer 3.0 supports streaming directly to Chromecast and other Google Cast devices. This includes subtitle support for all formats supported by Beamer: external files, embedded in movies, text based, picture based.

Redesigned interface

A new, modern interface that makes commonly accessed options such as selecting the audio track or subtitles easier. The playlist is now integrated into the player window of the app, and displays the titles of previously viewed movies, making it easy to select a favorite video for additional viewing. Or, if preferred, the app can automatically remove the titles of already watched movies from the list.
