I have never found Chromecast to be the most reliable way to get stuff on your tv. Better to have the app running on your smart tv if possible. I dont understand why its an issue. It seems pretty simple in concept. You are just forwarding packets of video data to your Chromecast device and it renders them. Doesn't seem hardI’ve been casting from my phone to the TV. It dropped out 5 times today. Now a huge deal, I could reload it and skim back to where it cut out. Picture was fabulous.
