Error message: unable to cast, there was a problem playing this item.
I've never had this problem before and nothing has changed in my setup. Help!

    I have the exact same issue starting this weekend. I have two chromcasts, both don't work anymore..
    Did you manage to solve this?

    Some of us have been having a few bugs with casting to a chromecast all month. I never had an error message (yet), but any media would hang around 30 minutes and i'd be forced to disconnect and reconnect to the CC.

    What has worked for the time being (for at least several of us) is forcing the PMS to transcode to the CC by either dipping video quality, or switching to a non-supported audio track if available. Even just transcoding the audio stream seems to prevent the PMS from flipping out. Direct play to a cc right now is a no go for some of us, though.
