Is anyone else having difficulties casting from Chrome on Windows? I have not been able to cast from my desktop for the past couple of weeks. It had worked fine in the past, but stopped recently. However I can cast the videos from an Android tablet.
Thanks for the suggestions. I tried removing the cast extension and adding it back, but it still will not play from Windows Chrome. I can cast the tab, but as soon as I try starting the video, the TV screen shows a JW Player logo, but never starts playing the video. I also tried installing the beta version of the google cast extension. But again I had the same results. I am able to stream videos from Youtube. So I'm thinking this might be an issue with either the JW Player used on the site, or something may have changed on the chromecast side. Either way it's still not casting from ITPro.tv. Does anyone know of another site that uses JW Player? It might be useful to see if I can get another site to cast.
By the way I'm using a Gen 1 Chromecast if that information is helpful.
OK I did some more digging and I found this page that list some sites that use JW Player and support casting....
The only site listed that seems to work with my Chromecast is the last one www.gamersyde.com. And that one only worked when I changed the video from Flash to HTML5. So I think that points to JW Player and the video stream type.
