Hello emby community,

 

a few weeks ago, I was trying to connect to my chromecast 2 wired to my router via the "official micro usb to LAN adapter" from google, but I couldn't find my chromecast within the emby iOS App. Strangely I was able to find my chromecast within the YouTube iOS App.

 

Then I set up some port forwards in my router to my chromecast, which I found online... (ports: 1900, 5353, 8008, 8009). This didn't help either... :(

Then I tried to connect via WiFi, which immediatly worked.

I also reseted my chromecast to default and even tried all this with my older (also reseted) chromecast 1, where it didn't work either, so the issue must be with the Emby iOS app.

Connecting my iOS device to my chromecast with LAN worked a few weeks ago (but with problems too...) but now it doesn't work anymore.

 

Did anyone notice this issue too or what can I do to connect my iPhone to my Chromecast via LAN again?

Could this issue maybe come with an Emby iOS App Update?

Regards Jones

Hi, have you made sure they're both connected to the same wifi network?

The problem isn't when my chromecast is connected to my wifi, as you can read above.
It is, when the chromecast is connected via the official ethernet adapter from google.
It works, when it's connected to my wifi!

And yeah, I made sure that my chromecast is connected to the same network as my iPhone...

Ok, I'm not really sure then. We don't actually detect Chromecast ourselves, it is done by a Google library. We haven't updated it in a while so maybe it needs an update in order to work with that adapter. We'll do that for the next release, thanks.

Just a follow up on this. When it says connect to "nearby device" the iOS app crashes and doesn't connect.

Netflix connects jus fine in the same settings.

What do you mean "nearby device"? We don't have anything in the app that says that. You click the cast icon in the app and your Chromecast will show up in that list.

@Luke when I click on the "Cast" icon, it says "Nearby Device".  It did the same in Netflix.  When I clicked on it in Netflix, it asked to access my microphone and then I believe it played a noise and didn't require me to add an access code.

 

After it authorized the Chromecast in Netflix, it then just listed the Chromecast.

 

When I clicked on the same in Emby iOS, it just crashed the app.

Please try Emby for iOS 1.7.6. Thanks.
