Cannot cast via Chromecast to JBL Playlist

Issue description:

I have a JBL Playlist player, which has built-in Chromecast support. When clicking on the cast symbol the player is listed and I can select it. However, the cast symbol then is displayed in red with an exclamation mark, and playback does not start.

Casting works to other Chromecast devices, including a regular Chromecast and a Chromecast audio.

Casting to the JBL Playlist also works with other applications, including Chrome and Spotify (via Chromecast protocol).

Reproduction steps:

  • Connect to JBL Playlist with the cast icon
  • Try to play back

Media provider:

Subsonic (Navi drone)



Play Services never send the connected event, so Symfonium can’t use the device.

That devices is maybe not compatible with the latest version of Play Service and Google cast libraries, not much I can do here :frowning: Have you tried to reboot that device and check if it"s firmware is up to date ?
