Recently Yatse mostly fails to properly connect and cast to Chromecast. It may connect and play a video, but after stopping playback and disconnecting it will fail for many, many further attempts on the same video.
I’ve made no configuration changes that I recall. For safety’s sake I’ve imported working settings saved earlier but no luck with that. I’ve also cleared the app’s cache and storage from the Android Settings menu without improvement. Rebooting the phone and the Chromecast didn’t help.
The same happens with Yatse on a second phone where it used to work fine before.
VLC connects to the same Chromecast and plays the same video fine.
Connecting to Chromecast
There are no error messages after turning on casting, but when the Available players dialog is opened again afterwards, it looks the same as before. In other words, it expects a player to be selected, instead of showing the active player (Chromecast) with a STOP CASTING button.
In some cases when opening the Available players dialog again afterwards, Local device is shown as the active player.
However, the big ‘Y’ screen is still displayed by Chromecast in all cases.
Casting a video
When not properly connected, playback does not work correctly, I suppose for obvious reasons. In some cases the playback bar progresses without any other sign of playback. In other cases Yatse would initiate playback to Local device even if it doesn’t show as active under Available players.
