Plex Can't Connect to Chromecast over Ethernet

I can give more info as needed.

I am trying to connect to my Chromecast when its connected through Ethernet (Wifi connects fine). The reason I think its the plex app is because i can connect to it on both GP and Vudu with no problems. It shows up as a player in the dialog but when i click connect it simply says it can't connect.

I looked in the logs for a log but no logs were created when trying to connect.

Router: TP-Link 1750
Android App:
Chromecast Ultra: 1.25.90308 (US)

It also does connect through the web site just not the android app. Only tried on web connection attached via ethernet not one on wifi however to the same router.

Any suggestions?
