No streaming
« on: June 30, 2015, 04:27:12 PM »
I have a problem using the Chromecast unit.

Equipment:

a) Samsung Galaxy S5
    Android version: 5.0
    Build number: LRX21T.6900FXXU1POEH

b) An old Samsung PDP TV with 2 HDMI-connections (no smart-TV functions!)
c) Inteno DG130 (?) router (supplied by my internet provider - some user configuration is available).
    Wi-Fi network with WPA2/PSK encryption and IEEE 802.11n.

Configuration and firmware update works OK, and I'm able to change the backdrop picture and
watch system information from the Chromecast app on my Samsung Galaxy S5.

BUT: When I try to cast something (i.e. a Youtube video or screen casting) the message
"Connecting to unit" shows on my Samsung Galaxy S5 screen and nothing else happens...

What's wrong ?

I have tried to use another router (D-Link DIR-655) and I have found that both my phone
and the Chromecast gets IP-addresses on the same network. It is also possible to ping
the Chromecast IP address from the my phone.

HELP!!!

Although Chromecast can handle various video types such as WebM, MP4, MPEG and MKV, if your video files are rejected by Chromecat, what you can do is to encode videos to MP4 for Chromecast and then use the Chromecast's local playback workaround to stream the movies to Chromecast.

But casting of the screen of Samsung Galaxy S5 does not work either.....
It only seems to be trying to connect to the Chromecast device and then nothing else happens..
Is there any log somewhere which I examine to find out what's going wrong ?
