Cromecast: better experience on chromecast without Google TV

Hi

I have 2 chromecasts connected

- chromecast (3th generation)

- chromecast with Google TV (4th generation)

 

When I cast to the first (older) device, everything works perfect: I can play, scroll forward and backward from my iPhone.

When I cast to the second (newer) device: 

- content plays, but

- scrolling forward --> video freezes, subtitels start from beginning, audio is correct.

 

So the "cast app" on the chromecast device (how do I call this?) reacts somewhat different and the older device and works better than an the newer device.

 

Anyone with same experience?
How can I make my chromecast with Google TV work better?

kind regards,

bartplessers

I have a similar setup and reported this same issue many months ago, but no resolution from Emby devs.

Hi there, let's look at an example. Please attach the information requested in how to report a media playback issue. Thanks!

I just posted a longer explanation here - maybe merge these two threads?

Hi @luke,

attached you can find some logs.

I could reproduce the issue with a testfile. You can find this file on

https://kuleuven-my.sharepoint.com/:f:/g/personal/bart_plessers_kuleuven_be/EtFt-KYShltNhald4VIYo-EB-TOyauwn-tY9LSC3z5NFcw?e=ZmaeUT

in the subfolder

Codec - 08. Big Buck Bunny (2008) - AAC 5.1

 

I create a srt files that displays every second the time playing

 

As mentioned before

- iPhone --> open Emby app --> select movie --> cast to Google TV ChromeCast

- start playing--> OK

- from my iPhone: scroll further in timeline. 

than

- videoframe of selected time is displayed, but is freezed

- srt file starts from beginning

- sounds seems to be OK

 

When playing on my old ChromeCast, no problems when I scroll futher in time

 

If you want to analyse the logs

192.168.4.61: server

192.168.4.93: ChromeCast 3

192.168.4.94: ChromeCast 4 (with Google TV)

192.168.4.182: iPhone

 

The logs attached

- embyserver.txt --> logs after a fresh restart of server

- embyserver-CC.txt --> test done while casting to ChromeCast

embyserver-CCwGTV.txt --> test done while casting to ChromeCast with GoogleTV

 

 

Thanx in advance,

Kind regards,

Bart Plessers
