Hi.  Yes.  If you search the app store for "Emby"  you should see it.

Thanks.

All,

 

I just bought a chromecast with google tv

If i search in apps, I don't get Emby.

Also the first time you configure google tv, he looks for apps allready installed on other devices (Finds my kodi,...) but he does not pick up emby.

Hi Luke,

That's quick.

On my phone I have emby app (Samsung A41 with Android 10). If I connect this phone in my car with Android Auto, I can open apps like emby (Only audio libraries but that's fine and normal), waze, tunein,...

The setup wizard from chromecast with google tv did find the tunein app (saying found on your other devices).

But ot the emby android app.

If I go in chromecast with google tv to apps and search, I don't get emby (Plex, Kodi,... works if I search for it).

But if I open the app store app on chromecast with google tv, I was able to find Emby app.

So i think searching for emby app doesn't work in the UI front (Google tv) that google build on top of android tv. But it will install emby if you go through the play store app first.

 

TNX!!

I don't suppose you've had a look at what the device will direct play?

Quite interested in getting one and comparing it to the Roku setup I have now.
