Anyh #opera users here?
The latest Developer build of Opera has added Chromecast support. It might take a few weeks before all Opera users get to use it, but this is getting ready! Chromecasting from Opera is not a straightforward thing at the moment. You can install Chrome extensions on Opera, so you can install Google Cast extension. However, I do …

Never could get it to work worth a crap for anything but screen mirroring. My 6 year old Sony player plays YouTube without a hiccup, but the Chromecast rarely will even get the video started. It has proven to be a near useless and defective product by design, and provides a disincentive to take a risk on a new one.

Took my old Magnavox radio, put some spare computer speakers hooked to a Chromecast Audio in the spare space inside, and am casting old radio shows and music.

Out there somewhere there's an archive of old wax cylinder recordings... that would be great to play those on this!

Is anyone else having to factory reset on a daily basis following the replacement of the extensions with the cast icon ? Not a big deal but a bit of a nuisance. I have the original Chromecast and am in Dev mode.

I'm using a Toshiba Chromebook 2 +Jon Eslick​, so Linux - y. I might just wind it back to Beta and see if that makes a difference.

Hi All. I'd like to share my new Cast Player iOS app, now available in Beta.
I'm looking for some early users that would give me some initial feedback so that I can improve the product. Thanks and enjoy!

here's something that might give an insight. I have wifi interference issues at home. <trying to diagnose the issues, I installed wifi analyzer (android app). it shows an un-named network that comes and goes... literally, if you keep this app open and watch it, you will see this network coming and going like a wave. based on the mac address I identified it as the chromecast in that room. following up, all chromecasts behave in the same way. so maybe when on standby they turn their wifi on and off periodically? I would be interested to see confirmation or documented refutation of this

Hi, new to this community
Looking for a bit of advice
Had a chromecast for a little while and love it so bought myself a chromecast audio, got it plugged into the mic on my hi-fi
What I'm after is plugin's or apps that will let my android play directly to it without mirroring it through google cast
Something like, Play Music.
don't know why but for some reason YouTube won't connect to it either, non compatible hardware or something I'm guessing.
anybody got any good suggestions?

Being unable to Cast the audio from Youtube to a CCA is beyond ridiculous. Fix it Google.

Has anyone found a replacement for the Google Photowall experiment???

Photowall was amazing. I would like to find a tool that my team can use to submit pics throughout the day, watch them scroll on a Chromecast, and create a video of the day's photos in the evening...

I recently cut my cord ... No need more Comcast, so just like many others, I'm replacing those channels with Sling. Sling is able to cast to Chromecast, but every now and then, the image blurs out (like it's on a 56k connection) then clears up. This seems to happen more often during sporting events (like Tour de France). Had anyone else with Sling had this problem?

Since you have cut the cord, you might need more powerful hardware. Like the nvidia shield which pretty much has a Chromecast built in to handle you casting needs. But until then video quality on Chromecast with sling will be up and down.

Google Chrome for web has got another amazing feature in its menu. Google has added Cast button in the Chrome for Web Menu

What release did this appear in? Because I'm up to date with 51.0.2704.106 m and don't have the built in Cast. Do you have to uninstall or de-activate the cast extension for the built in cast to appear?

+Nkansah Rexford my browser, the way that I use it, does work only when connected to the Internet.

Offline web apps are awful for me. I don't live in a far away village and I'm never without access. Your use case is different, that's fine.

I'm not arguing can/can't or should/shouldn't. In fact, I'm not arguing at all. I'm pointing out that Chromecast is a connected device.

If there were demand, Google would add offline support. If there were demand, Roku would do it. Or Amazon. But as I already mentioned they can't make online Casting/Flinging/Flicking work reliably.

Android Central: Tidal gains Chromecast support and more in latest update. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIw0orF-iU
Music streaming service Tidal has added Chromecast support to its mobile apps, allowing you to play your music on your television or speaker system. All you'll need to do is update the app and begin playing on your existing Chromecast setup.

Why bother, if Apple does indeed buy Tidal, you'll be able to count the seconds between Tim Cook signing the cheque and Android/chromecast support being dropped, as they've done in other acquisitions.

I am having a problem casting from Ubuntu. I dual booting on my desktop, and in the last month chrome can not find my chrome cast devices. I think the change came when casting was included on the new version of the browser. The windows side finds the devices no problem. The problem is I don't like windows much. does anybody know what the issue might be?

I've had similar issues with chrome sometimes not finding the cast devices, in my case I have to manually toggle the guest setting in my router between on and off and then chrome finds them right away.

Hi, I have a first generation Chromecasts, I moved house you have inserted in the new TV, you state that the connection is always the same so I reset the Chromecasts again but I get problems, tells me that the My router is not enabled and that must be changed by the router settings, I went to see my AP is enabled, but I can not have a positive response. by chance you know what the problem is? if I was not clear ask me no problems. thanks a lot (my English is not perfect, sorry) #problem #chromecast #google
