Hi,

 

I am out of ideas.

 

I can cast to my chromecast from the Emby mobile app, either from ipad or iphone.

 

On PC and Mac, in Google Chrome (updated and it is not a dev version) the chromecast doesn't show up in the list of devices.

 

On the same PC or Mac, I can cast to my chromecast from youtube or any castable website. In the Chrome's menu I can cast to my chromecast, but notbfrom within Emby web app.

 

I am not using a VPN. My server is not located on the local network, I access it through internet usual port.

 

Suggestions much welcome as I am new in the Chromecast world.

 

Cheers.

Do you have the Google Cast extension installed?

Discovered that if I hit the Cast option in Chrome's menu then the cast button in Emby becomes green and next to it appears my chromecast and it works.

So do we need to go through the Cast menu in Chrome?

When you click chromecast in emby, the Google cast menu opens. That is a Google menu and we have no control over what devices it displays. If chromecast doesn't show up at all, it's because the cast sdk told us that you don't have any chromecast devices.

Why there would be a discrepancy with the browser feature I am not exactly sure. I've never seen that before.

Thanks for the answer. Updated the other thread with a similar answer ;-)
