This might be old news, but I just found out chromecast display a pop-up at the bottom right when someone adds a video to the queue. What a nice touch.

Hello,

I'm using Chrome browser in order to cast movies to my TV and it works just great, I have only one problem which is that I cannot see the movies subtitle (arabic) although the subtitle file is in merger with the movie it self. I wonder if there're any solutions for this problem please?. Thanks.

Regards,

The Chromecast is a pretty awesome media player that pays for itself. If you want to use it without the internet, though, you’re fresh out of luck. This custom ROM can change that.

I'm having a Chromecast issue and couldn't find a solution anywhere. Chromecast was working just fine until I decided to move it to a different TV and rename it, thus resetting it.

After the reset, The Chromecast wouldn't connect to the my Wifi anymore, though nothing in the wifi settings changed from before.
I tried the following:
- Turn my phone into a hotspot - Chromecast connects ✔
- Open the modem internal wifi (the modem my router connect to) - Chromecast connects ✔
- Open the guest network in my router - Chromecast connects ✔
- Resetting router, resetting Chromecast again and try my main wifi network - Doesn't connect  ✖ 

I have to connect it to my main network since this is where my media server is.

Any ideas???

I'm about to get google cardboard (vr headset) in the mail. I have a desktop running windows 10 and the chromebook flip, and chromecast...i'm wondering if there is a way to connect all of these or some of them to plays games through my phone(nexus 6) with the headset? an example of what i'm hoping for is can i have the headset on playing a game/movie while having sound come through the tv speakers(or just bluetooth speaker) and could i be watching something on my headset while someone in the room is watching what i see on the tv through the chromecast?

+Anthony D'Amico​, you should be able to cast your phone's screen to the Chromecast, and the audio will come through the TV. The TV will obviously show the split view with left and right on their respective halves, but people in the room could then see what you're seeing. I got this to work well on an ADT-1. My Nexus Player was acting flaky though and kept dropping the connection.

Hi all,

I purchased a chromecast 2015about a month ago and it has been glorious. However, a couple days ago after i opened the netflix app, the cast icon never appeared. I opened the chromecast app and it wanted me to set my chromecast up again. I tried this and now it is unable to complete the setup and my chromecast is unusable... does anyone know of a fix?

Thank you!!

Anyone else lose the Cast icon in Netflix on the Chrome browser?

I cleared the browser cache and removed and reinstalled the Google Cast extension but it still doesn't show up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just deleted the kids profile and created a new one that was not limited to kids. The Chromecast icon appeared and it worked fine. I'll just have to do that in the meantime and monitor what the kids watch. Or I can do it from my phone which still worked fine with the kids profile.

No problem +Robert Le Blah, TellyMount was conceived to complement your preferred video calling app, but we're also exploring interest for a new app. We use Hangouts and Skype regularly and have not experienced the echo you mentioned. Was this a recent occurrence? If you would like us to help troubleshoot the echo, please email contact@gantryworks.com and describe the setup on both sides.
