[bug found] Cannot play some movies on Chromecast if TV is 720p only

edited March 4 in Google Chromecast

I have many movies and series, from many different origins.

I can play all of them in Android, iOS, and browser, no problem at all.

I used to play all of them on Chromecast 1 also. But recently I got a Chromecast 2 and now most movies do not play anymore!

Please help!

Attached, my server logs. I trimmed them before and after the test, to keep them small.

JonnyCast is my CC2, SalaCast is my CC1.

Thanks in advance for any help...

    I thought I would solve my problem simply swapping CC1 with CC2, but surprise!!! The problem is not on CC, but apparently on TV.

    Now I can play my test video on CC1, but not on CC2.

    I cannot play video to a 1366x768 resolution TV. But it works perfectly in a 1920x1080p TV. It MUST be some kind of transcode problem.

    Here are the newer logs.
