Today I was at a house that has a Shield, so I tried casting to it. It connected just fine, showed the info page just fine, but anything I tried playing had problems. Some wouldn't play at all, others would freeze. The internet bandwidth was low, so I blamed that. Now that I'm home, I tried the same thing. I get the same results. Only a few movies that I tried, have played. Most won't. The movies have varying containers, varying audio and video codecs. I'm attaching the remux log for the last attempt. This just froze at the first frame.
Casting from mobile to shield doesn't work well

Testing this further, they will play from the beginning, but if you skip forward or use chapters, it freezes playing. No, it isn't that you need to wait for it to create a buffer, they completely freeze and the playback time continues as though it is playing. You have to press stop to exit out. Some will work ok, but a lot won't.
Does chromecast not support AAC?

Are you still running into this?
Yes, no change. The quick test I just did was to play a movie from the beginning, it played. Then choose a chapter while playing....it skipped to the chapter but doesn't play. It just freezes. Then tried playing directly by chapter, same as before, it freezes. Some movies won't even play from the beginning. Look in the log around 11:07pm, the movie is 3 Days to Kill.
