I have read as many of the related topics I could find but the answers did not help. 

 

A short time ago, all of my X265 encoded videos stopped casting to Chromecast. After selecting the Chromecast, and pressing play, it appears to start, then goes back to "Ready to Cast". I have tried Android app, iOS app, and browser app. I tried reducing the quality in the app settings (Playback>>Chromecast Streaming Quality) to no avail. I have tried several movies and the only ones that cannot play are X265. 

 

These videos were playing fine until recently (was there an upgrade to the server?). Have others experienced this?

 

Emby Server: Version 4.0.3.0

Chromecast, 1st Generation
Chromecast firmware: 1.32.144770
Emby for Chromecast 2.1.0
Emby for Android Mobile 3.0.42
 
I do not mind upgrading my Chromecast, but was hoping we could troubleshoot and understand the issue, as it just started happening recently. 
 

I have attached the video specs of one of the movies I have been trying to play (tried 10+ this morning to troubleshoot). 

 

I have also attached the transcoding log of one of the failures. I did edit the file for "THE NAME WAS CHANGED TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT".

 

Any help?

I believe this should be resolved for the next release of the server. For now you could try turning off hardware transcoding in server transcoding settings. thanks.
