    Is anything else supported Besides HLS? MPEGTS ,RTMP?

    We play DASH and streaming MKV right now, if that helps?

    We aren't going to provide a rolled back version but hope to improve playback of channels and other content. Sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear.

    It is very bad news that Chromecast doesn’t play channels and iptv m3u list via channels.

    Also, because of your HLS impossible to play channels via DLNA on TV. my TVs doesn’t show channels content!!

    Big problem!! Need to fix IPTV via Chromecast and via DLNA or made workaround with transcoding this flow on the fly for Chromecast.

    You can made option to transcode channels back

    It’s play everything via Chromecast except main channel feature...

    Is it possible to change Chromecast.xml file to transcode HLS to Chromecast supported protocol for channels like in this discussion on page1?

    Yea we need a fix soon :( taking away functionality is kinda garbage. And not letting anyone know before sucks even more.

    We are paying money for Plex Pass. We can order to return back Chromecast to channel!!

    HLS is supported by Chromecast according to this reference:

    https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media
    ————
    Delivery methods and adaptive streaming protocols

    These are available through use of the Media Player Library, or you may use your own player library.

    • MPEG-DASH
      *PlayReady (Security Level 2000)
      * Widevine (Level 1)

    • SmoothStreaming
      *PlayReady (Security Level 2000)

    • HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)
      * AES-128 encryption
      * Raw MP3 segments can be part of an HLS media playlist

    • Progressive download without adaptive switching (using the HTML media element only)

    With adaptive bitrate streaming protocols, you must implement CORS. To implement an encrypted protocol, including DRM, you should develop a Custom Receiver. See DRM support for more information.

    Why PLEX channels doesn’t work with Chromecast?

    I feel I've answered this a few times already, but we hope to reenable HLS support, and therefore channel support, soon - but I can't commit to when.

    I hope we push developers and channels will work again.

    Other films work good with surround sound via Chromecast. Plex for example knows that AAA 5.1 codec from June 2017 doesn’t supported by Chromecast and plex transcoded automatically AAA 5.1 to EAC3 5.1 without problems for Chromecast only.

    No other app in AppStore who can do it. Only plex. (Emby probably too, don’t check Emby)

    So Chromecast alive, but need to push developers to channels (plugins) fix.
