https://support.google.com/chromecast/answer/6291385 says:

Solid orange - There may be an error with your device issue. Perform a reboot on your device by unplugging it from the power source, waiting about 1 minute, and then plugging it back in. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, perform a Factory Data Reset (FDR).

Which is...

While the Chromecast is plugged into the TV, hold down the button on the side of the Chromecast. The LED will begin blinking orange. When the LED light turns white, release the button and the Chromecast will begin the reboot sequence.

Can anyone tell me how I can use my phone hotspot to connect to Chrome cast.

In my experience you need two phones to do the initial setup. After that it can just use the hotspot in the phone and cast from that phone. LocalCast works. As do youtube etc. You still need an internet connection via mobile data even for localcast as the chromecast needs to connect to google to authorize the app.

Hi all what can I do with Chromecast and iOS (both iPhone and iPad)?
I'm very tempted to make my TV more "smart", and I see Chromecast a simple and cheap solution.
I see I can cast from YouTube App and Spotify...but what else?
Am I able to cast what I surf with the Chrome browser?
How about other Google services such as Documents or Sheets?

If in America, and on T-Mobile, then Google Play, Pandora, etc are all free. I do this with Chromecast in hotels and steam music the whole time I'm there. Works great, not a dime in overages.

Does anyone leave there chromecast and or chromecast audio always plugged in. I know they are met to be left plugged in, but does anyone do this. If so does it effect anything. Do you think it will last as long?

+Ryan Wilson Speaker is this (auto-powers off when not in use, but you still need to turn it on when you want to use it) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008VMT2HQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I use these with outdoor setups / extension cord connections https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005VI0D6C/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

For the chromecast audio, I put it inside this with the power cords for the speaker and audio cable running out to the speaker box.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009RX5GI2/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Cut a hole into the weather seal on the speaker box so it wraps around the audio cable, can seal it with some silicon for even more protection.

+Thomas Tran​ yep, I could definitely see where it would be a problem if you only had one wifi capable device and that being your phone. I assume everyone has tablets, laptops, desktops like myself when I shouldn't.👍

+Nathan Campbell usually it's under your WiFi settings. Alternatively, go with Neils suggestion (but it may still have to be on the same frequency)

Depends on what you want from your speakers. If you want really good sound you need (and should) invest a little more.

Get A Free Chromecast for Trying YouTube Red

A lot of subscribers to YouTube's new premium service YouTube Red are receiving an offer for a free Chromecast, Google's drop dead simple media streaming dongle for televisions. It's possible, even likely, that all subscribers will eventually receive this offer.

This an excellent deal when you consider that the service is currently available for about a dollar for the first three months, if you aren't a subscriber already. Chromecasts are affordable to begin with, but this is ridiculously affordable in theory.

Who knows, you might even stick with the service when you can watch videos on your big screen?

#YouTube #YouTubeRed #Chromecast
Google seems to be going all out to promote YouTube Red right now. First, Google offered the service for just 99 cents for the first three months and is now it is giving away a free Chromecast to select subscribers to the service. The only trick is figuring out exactly how Google is choosing who gets what. A large number of YouTube Red subscribers – including those that have been on the service for a while and those that only signed up on ...
