Youtube to Chromecast doesn't work using Hub



  • Hi all,

    I've got a Flic paired with a hub running version 1.5.0 . I've previously been able to have it execute a command to cast a Youtube video to my Chromecast but it doesn't work anymore. Stopped working since approx Dec 2018 and I haven't been able to get it to work.

    Hub 1.5.0
    Flic button - single click command executes Chromecast provider
    Action is Youtube and URL is "httpsCOLON//www.youtube.com/watch?v=se5XcrG4S8s" (had to mess it up a little otherwise it would embed the video)

    I can't get it to work despite varying the URL to be without https:// or as http:// or just the se5XcrG4S8s itself. How do I make it work?

    When I press it the Youtube app opens on the Chromecast but it doesn't load the video. Casting from native Android or iOS Youtube apps both work fine.

    Thoughts? Thanks!



  • Hi,

    Any updates? I have this issue for months now and Flic team is not responding on my emails.

    BR,
    Mikyy



  • @Emil Any update on this? Is this something that is on the to-do list?



  • @MiWoBe Yes I'm getting the same thing, it turns on my TV via Chromecast, opens the YouTube app, but just shows the YouTube logo and that's all it does! Would love a fix for this.

  • FlicTeam

    YouTube in Chromecast is currently broken since Google has changed something in their software. We shall try to fix it but if we can't then we will remove the action.



  • @FlicUser Just received and tested with chromcast and it is still not working on version 2.0.13. Tried also with api key from Google. YouTube starts but stays on first logo screen.



  • Having this problem as well :/



  • Same problem here, did you get it to work?



  • Having same issue. Tried full URL (desktop & mobile versions) and 11 characters after the v=
    on hub version 1.5.2
