Here is what I would like to do:

 

Use a Rasp Pi 3B+ with a 7" touchscreen to act as a music controller to cast music to my Google Homes. 

Is there a way to do this without using the web interface which needs a secure connection to cast? While I had one for a while I don't want to have to futz around monthly to keep it working.

I looked at the Emby Pi client but I do not see a cast button on it, unless I am missing something.

I have tried with Plex and the only way to do it is with the web client and it is too cumbersome on the 7" screen. 

Hoping Emby has a solution I can use.

Hi there, we hope to in the future but google has not yet opened it up for all third party apps to utilize.

Thanks @Luke, that is what I thought but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.
