Anyone try using Slingplayer (connected in the US) with a Chromecrast (connected in Europe)? It connects to my phone, but when I try streaming to the chromecast connected to my tv, it fails.  Was just wondering if it's possible there is some kind of block in doing this.  TIA

Haven't done it much... didn't work so great when the first added CC functionality to the Slingplayer app.. but I think I was having network issues at the time as well.   I have a PC hooked up to our living room TV so just use the Sling web player.   Our main cable box is in the computer room.. so instead of paying for a second box for the living room (that we rarely use for TV), I just use the Slingbox for the occasional TV viewing in the living room.

Have a Slingbox 500, btw...   will try to test it again, maybe this weekend.

Photos v1.4 Tiny Teardown: Cast Tease

I just finished looking through Photos v1.4, and it appears to be a bug fix release. However, there is one new line in that can't be ignored: it's the Cast button for the action bar. I've mentioned in the past that there is evidence of Cast support, and this adds another log to that fire.

<item android:id="@id/action_bar_cast" android:title="@string/photos_home_menu_action_menu_cast" custom:showAsAction="ifRoom" custom:actionProviderClass="android.support.v7.app.MediaRouteActionProvider" />

I know how eager everybody is for this, but it's not active yet (I've tested extensively). Nevertheless, it's definitely going to happen, and possibly with this version if Google activates it with a server-side switch. Stay on the lookout!

Here's the download link for the new version:

Hopefully it's coming very soon. It shouldn't have been released and made standard till casting was built in if you ask me...

In an effort to replace cable boxes, has anyone tried to cast the optimum app? Does it work well enough to replace a cable box?

I have this problem, too. Cast Google Music from a Galaxy S5. It craps out after a few songs. I didn't renew Google Music unlimited because of this problem.

anyone else have trouble with their chromecast constantly disconnecting from network? i always have to reboot my wireless router. i checked the router on chromecast's supported router site (https://support.google.com/chromecast/table/6207416?hl=en) and mine is listed but only with a workaround of enabling or disabling the "multicast stream"

I used to have a similar problem but when I switched to the power adapter over the TV's USB it stopped.

I've had roughly $25 Google play money. $20 in Google music all access beyond the typical 30 day trial. And about $15 in free movie rentals. all totals are estimates as memory serves me.

I've recently been using Chromecast to display a static webpage with operational stats for my company.  Every now and then I'll notice that the webpage freezes and no longer shows updated content.  I've found if I look in task manager, there will be a single chrome.exe process using a constant 12-15% CPU usage.  Killing this process will bring chromecast back to life, but it happens 4 or 5 times during the day and has become somewhat annoying.  Does anyone have any ideas?  There is no video being casted, just chart data on a carousel.  Are there any logs I can look at to see what might be triggering this?
