Chromecast Address

Recommended Posts

@@benze Indeed, I too noticed that the Chromecast doesn't honor local DNS settings. Its quite annoying. In my case, the emby subdomain has a public record so I don't need to add any redirection rules for Google's DNS servers. I also checked that running `dig @8.8.8.8` on my subdomain returns the correct result.

So I haven't gotten any further with this. @@Luke, do you have any thoughts on how I can debug/troubleshoot this issue? Is there a way to snoop what the Chromecast is doing?

I do have the same problem but using an nginx reverse proxy.

 

Playing a media from a browser or an app work.

Playing a media from chromecast remotely doesn't.

 

Emby is showing the proper dns name on the panel and is configured to be "Security managed by a reverse proxy"

 

I tried to redirect external https to emby http, and https. Both display the same results.

 

8.8.8.8 dns is properly solving my public ip address

 

I have a few users that only have chromecast as a way to send media to a tv and they cannot use the service

 

There's no trace of a request from the chromecast in emby server logs

 

Edit: After further investigation it seems that I have some request on http://MYDOMAIN.FR:8096 I don't really understand why it is showing my domain and not the local ip address

@@Antheor did you configure the domain name as the WAN address in your emby server dashboard?
