This thread seems to be related: http://emby.media/co...st-with-306060/
I've opted to create a new thread because I think there was a bit of confusion as to what the problem actually was in the other thread (and it was in the wrong section), plus I've done quite a bit more testing to try to narrow the problem down.
 
The Problem:
Chrome recently rolled out a new, built-in experience for Google Cast: https://chrome.googl...-to-chrome.html. This experience doesn't seem to work in the latest version of Emby, 3.0.6400.0. When clicking the "Chromecast" option from the Emby web interface, the new Google Cast "Cast to" dialog never shows up, and I am never prompted to select the device to which I would like to cast. Other sites, like YouTube and Google Music, still work as expected from their respective web interfaces.
 
Steps to reproduce:

  • Load the Emby web interface in either Desktop or Mobile Chrome
  • Click the "Cast" Icon (next to the "Search" icon)
  • Emby's device selection dialog shows up with two (or more) options. "My Device" and "Chromecast" should be present in the list.
  • Click "Chromecast"

Expected Result: The Google Cast "Cast to" dialog should appear, allowing me to select a Chromecast.
Actual Result: Emby's device selection dialog disappears and nothing happens -- the Google Cast "Cast to" dialog never appears. An error is thrown in the browser's console (see "Additional Information & Logs" below).
 
Workarounds:

  • If I revert back to 3.0.5972.0, casting works as expected. 3.0.5984.0 seems to be the first (stable) version in which casting from the web interface is broken (it would seem that this could be related to all of the promise-related work in 5984 -- the errors thrown in console are promise-related).
  • (Desktop Chrome only) If I disable the Media Router in Chrome (https://support.goog...r/6349849?hl=en) and install the old Chromecast extension, casting works as expected in 6400, but only the first time I try casting; If I disconnect the Chromecast via the web interface and try reconnecting, or if I dismiss the "Cast to" dialog without selecting a device, Emby will not open extension dialog again (until I reload the page).

Browsers Tested:

  • Chrome for Windows (Stable, Beta, Canary)
  • Chrome for Android (Stable, Beta, Dev)

Emby Versions Tested:

  • 3.0.6400.0 - Broken
  • 3.0.5984.0 - Broken
  • 3.0.5972.0 - Working

Additional Information & Logs:
Another, possibly related bug: Anytime I dismiss one of Emby's contextual pop-up dialogs (the device selection list, or a menu accessed by clicking the "three-dots" icon on any show/season/etc) without taking an affirmative action (i.e. by clicking outside the dialog -- not selecting any of the options present inside the dialog), I get a JS console error saying "Uncaught (in promise) undefined" from actionsheet.js, line 256.
 
Here's some relevant JS Console output for the Chromecast issue. The most important lines (I believe) are the last 7:

Have the same problem.

Easier workaround:

While on Emby web app, hit the Cast menu in Chrome's menu and choose your chromecast then it works as expected (your chromecast appears selected in emby's web app and emby starts casting)

Updated server.

It kind of work on 3.0.8300.0: your chromecast name doesn't appear in Emby's cast menu but when you hit Chromecast in the menu under Your Device it starts Chrome's integrated casting where you can select your chromecast...
