Start a youtube move on Chromecast doesn't work



  • Hi,

    I use a flic that is paired with my android phone. I have used the flic app to set up an action to start playing my kids favourite youtube movie through my Chromecast. I selected my chromecast device, and selected youtube and gave a Youtube URL: httpsCOLON//youtu.be/vougWwzhanU also tested with httpsCOLON//www.youtube.com/watch?v=vougWwzhanU I had to change the : to COLON to avoid showing an embedded player here in the forum. Both do start the Chromecast and the youtube logo shows up on the TV, but the movie doesn't start playing. And the phone shows a notification from the flic app: Chromecast: Youtube couldn't start correctly. Is this a known software bug? Or are there any suggesties on how to fix this? Thanks!



  • @flic-l 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?



  • @Emil Any update on this isue?



  • @Emil Thanks for confirming this. Any idea when we can expect a fix?

    The YouTube action with Chromecast is currently broken because they have changed something. Hopefully we will fix it but if it doesn't work then we should remove it.
