Unable to stream to Chromecast

Hi all,

 

I hope there is someone that can help me.

 

I just installed Emby Server 3.5.3 on a Windows 2012 server. All seems to work fine except streaming to a Chromecast. When selecting a Chromecast on my iPhone it just displays "Ready to cast" and then nothing happens.

 

In the attached EmbyServer log file I started to stream to my Chromecast 20:44 (see also below).

For further info, I have also attached two ffmpeg log files.

 

2018-12-20 20:44:40.496 Info HttpServer: HTTP Response 204 to 10.0.0.63. Time: 362ms. http://10.0.0.102:8096/emby/Sessions/Playing/Progress

 

 

 

Info about the setup

Emby Server 3.5.3 running on Windows 2012 server (IP: 10.0.0.102)

Chromecast 3. gen (firmware 1.36) (IP: 10.0.0.63)

iPhone 8 with IOS 12.1

Emby app 1.70

 

Thanks in advanced

Good news, this sample is playing just fine for me. Based on that I would suggest re-evaluating this issue following the next release of Emby Server. Thanks !

Hi again

 

Same behavior as below the upgrade.

 

When selecting a Chromecast gen 2 on my iPhone it just displays "Ready to cast" and then nothing happens.

 

Thanks

This means that although the app can reach your Chromecast, your Chromecast cannot reach your Emby Server. Is this all inside your local network?

Hi Again

 

The Emby server, Chromecast gen1 and Chromecast gen 2 are all on the same local network.

When you connect to the server using the iOS app, are you using a local network ip address?
