Chromecast

Using chromecast mostly nowadays.

On my android I go to Serviigo, set external video player and medium content quality, pick a show or movie, play through localcast, and it plays anything.

Mediabrowser does not work very well with the chromecast. No music will play at all. And the chromecast casting icon only appears every other time mediabrowser is used for video. In other words watch a show, exit, sign back in, go to next episode, very buggy.

But serviigo works perfectly. :mrgreen:

Re: Chromecast

Looking for long time to understand if and how Serviio support Chromecast.
I think that if so, there must be a guide somewhere...
What I need to be Chromecast working with Serviio?
In this thread freaknik talks about Serviigo, but I don't know if the app is still developed because I can't find it on Playstore...
I need the Pro version? I just installed the last version (1.10) of Serviio and I got 14 days trial period for pro version, but I don't know how to test it...
Can someone give me some answer?
Many thanks!

Re: Chromecast

Serviigo, to my understanding, was pulled from the Play Store for an update, and hasn't passed permission yet from Google to deploy. Yes, it requires Serviio Pro to work.

I don't know a lot about Chromecast, as I never liked the idea of having to use my phone or tablet to control it. While I have an Android phone, I've never used Chromecast. I have the older version of Serviigo on my phone, and I have it set to use VLC as the video player. However, even connected to my home network on a 5 GHz wireless router, I can't play a 4K video on my S8. It constantly buffers, so it can't handle the video bitrate. 1080 or DVD quality is no problem.
