I have some weird behavior using Chromecast.
When I use my phone or tablet (both Android) to select a movie and cast it to Chromecast it usually does so with transcoding. When I monitor the server it says in the status > now playing: Transcoding h264 to h264.
When I use the web interface through my laptop and cast the same file to the same Chromecast, it plays without transcoding and the now playing status shows Direct Stream.
I prefer the last playback, because my NAS can't handle the transcoding, it keeps buffering every few seconds or minutes. Chromecast plays the file without any problems through direct stream.
My NAS is connected through 1 GB LAN. All devices (phone, tablet, laptop and chromecast) are on the same 5 ghz WiFi network.
Is there any way to make the casting through Android also use direct stream whenever possible?
Thanks in advance!
