popcorn time and chromecast

Postby sasquatch » Tue Nov 22, 2016 2:29 pm

since i upgraded to the new version of popcorn time (beta 5.5) that is running on windows 10.
it has trouble finding my chromecast.
i have to click the cast icon alot (20+ times) before is shows my chromecast in the list.
the problem is not my chromecast because if it doesnt show in popcorn time i can cast my phone or google chrome to it.

then the other problem is that if it do connect to my chromecast. some movie versions don't have sound(don't know excatly which one anymore).

hope you can fix it.

greetz,

Chromecast only support at limited numbers of audio and video formats. Some movies you can cast with out audio. I think Chromecast only checks the video format, and you end up casting a movie with out audio.
