Cannot cast local content to Chromecast

ios

#1

Hi,

I got my new shiny PlexPass and tried the use case I got it for: syncing content to my IPhone and casting it to a Chromecast device, but it doesn't work (after initial title screen and some sort of a loading screen on my TV, I get "unable to play" message). This happens for both synced content and videos from camera roll. In the same time, casting from local media server works like a charm. Any ideas ?

Same issue here…

It turned out the issue had nothing to do with Plex, but with Chromecast. You can’t stream HEVC to Chromecast. Once I turned off HEVC on IPhone and re-synced it all started to work.
