Casting takes multiple attempts

TLDR: Often have to cast twice to get media to play.

 

Thought this was just me but saw two more posts on reddit tonight.  Basically when I cast (usually YouTube or Spotify) first attempt will start then freeze.  Have to stop casting and reset the app sending.  Fingers crossed everything refreshes.

 

Android P, paid spotify, all updates.  LSD has just been updates and still no fix (but to be fair am only just raising it, sorry!)

Re: Casting takes multiple attempts

Hi @Mr-Bond,

 

I will try to replicate tonight, I now have R6 so can try out this.

 

In the meantime, I suggest you send feedback to Google using #Casting Multiple

 

Do it before casting and then once you get the error.

 

Will get back to you once I've tried it.

Sent feedback to Google, thanks Miguel.  There is no 'error' it just hangs.  To be fair it seems all chromecast destinations do this at times.

 

This has been going on a while, so before R6 but can't remember exactly how long.

Re: Casting takes multiple attempts

This always happens to me when casting youtube to LSD. I just stop casting and recast and it always works the second time. Very annoying and now I just generally cast to my TV which always works the first time. It's definitely specific to LSD as I can always cast first time to all my other cast devices - Google homes, LG c8, Apple tv, shield TV.
