So am trying to cast from my Nexus 6p to my nexus player and it won't cast. I've always been able. To just hit the cast button and it won't do it anyone. I've tried it with YouTube my videos pictures ect and nothing. But when I cast to my chromecast in the item room it works perfectly. Does anyone knows the what problem could be????

You're probably not connected to the same wifi as the Chromecast device.

How do you cast audio using Chromecast Audio from an Android phone without an active internet connection for the Chromecast? No tethering plan so I can't turn on mobile hotspot (because Google decided to implement carrier service check in the Nexus phones unlike other device manufacturers who will allow you to enable it even without tethering plan). I want to do this so I can cast audio in the car without an aftermarket head unit. Again because Google couldn't get its plans together for the car market and car manufacturers went the Apple route instead.

I have also this problem. My internet connection is off now due to ISP changing and I cannot cast anything from my linux Mint with Kodi to my tv with chromecast.

Did you ever find out anything? I have a simpler use case - to know when the CCA is playing or not, so I can remotely power-on my amp. Even a broadcast/multicast packet on the local network would be okay.

Twitch.tv app lags on Chromecast. I think I figured it out if the streamer has over so amount of viewers it lags or its something to do with the bit rate for the streamer is streaming in but I can also stream it 100% fine on my phone.

Chromecast sales cross 30 million mark
Couple of months back Google at it's keynote developer conference announced that it has sold over 25 million Chromecast units since it's launch. And now the sale of this budget friendly device has crossed the 30 million miles...

Good news for the basements and attics of the world: bulky old cathode ray TVs are no longer useless! And turning them into a retro streaming device is easier than it looks.

Looking to get rid of the screen saver effect of the Chromecast. I have it set to cycle through black pictures and that works, but I really just want a blank screen to cast to and then it go blank again.  Also even though I am running it with the black pictures, if I stop casting it flashes up a scenery pic for a few seconds. This is pretty unacceptable for my application. Thoughts?

+jarefah jarefahx the Google team has stats about the various functions of the app so they know exactly how many people use the casting function.

Ho all.
I have a problem.. I want to cast some movies from my linux mint with kodi to my tv with chromecast. I mean locally trough my home network. The problem is, that this network has no internet connection. Router works ok, all machines in this home group/network also, but I cannot cast anything. My internet connection is off now, because I am changing my ISP from one to the another provider.
On my tv shows up only chromecast information page about connection with the internet problem.
What should I do now?
Is there any trick or some hack to enable local casting without active internet connection?
Thnx in advance for some tips.

+Michael McPeters Well.. Perhaps yes, or some android box, but I want to use hardware which I have now - three chromecasts, one for each tv.

If you use or tried Spotify, please, consider supporting request to add Last.fm scrobbling feature to Chromecast. Just log in and click green thumb up under kudos. Thank you
