PopCast lets you easily binge watch your favourite shows. Simply drop multiple episodes into your playlist, then sit back and relax.
You can still use the existing remote controls for your device (e.g. Apple TV Remote, iPhone app) to pause, fast forward and rewind.
Looping playlists lets you create cool, continuous displays for company promotional material, special events, or entertainment.
Subtitles & Audio Tracks
If you like watching anime, foreign films, or are trying to learn a new language, you can now show subtitles and switch between audio tracks.
PopCast detects when your current video file contains subtitles and/or alternative audio, and provides extra buttons for switching between them.
All of the most popular subtitle formats are supported, including SRT.
