Casting to chromecast from the google Slides app

Post by gusano75 on Thu Jun 11, 2015 5:24 pm

Hello there,

A happy user of SoundAbout for several years now.

Today I tried using the new cast to chromecast feature of the google Slides app with no success. With logcat I could see that the problem was related to some incompatibility with audio codecs or something like that, so I got the idea that the problem could come from SoundAbout. I tried deactivating SoundAbout and rebooting my telephone. After that the casting was working perfectly, but as soon as I activate the SoundAbout service I cannot cast anymore. I tried at least six times the recipe and the problem is totally reproductible. I really need to reboot the phone every time I deactivate SoundAbout if I want to be able to cast again.

BTW, the same thing happens with the screen mirror cast.

I have a nexus 5 running 5.1.1. I'm rooted and running Xposed with Gravity Box. Hopefully the problem is not related to a bad interaction between gravitybox and SoundAbout Razz.

So my question to the non-rooted or non-xposed audience: is somebody having the same problem I'm having?

Thanks a lot!

Rafa.

I may have to make the WiFi audio, the default (if it is connected to a device).  Try the latest Beta.

I've been fixing some issues that were tough to find the past few weeks and am just getting back to answering emails/messages.

I just uploaded a new Beta version here.

Reboot after installing.

I just tried with 2.6.4 and the problem is still happening, as soon as I activate soundabout I can not mirror my screen to the chromecast or cast from the slides app.

Gusano75,  Can you open SoundAbout, change the "Media Audio" setting to "Wifi" (scroll to bottom of settings) and see if it will work?

If that works, then we just need to find the correct intent send when the audio connection is made so that "Media audio" can be set to "Let app decide" and detect the Wifi Audio connection.
