    Server / Chromecast / I'm confused

    Hi folks,

    I'm a long time Squeezebox 2 user with the server running on my mac.

    A year or so ago I switched to Chromecast audio as I mostly use Spotify, it works great.
    But I'd like to also stream music from my Mac. Does anyone know how to do this and control it from my phone as I do spotify? Can SB server be connected to Chromecast and controlled from a iphone app?

    Thanks, the thread you linked to says the Chromebridge is in the apps but it's not. How can I get this?

    You need an LMS server on your network and it is then listed therein as an installable plugin.
    You cannot use this without an LMS server.

    You will need to install the Material plugin. IPeng (iOS app) is still better but Material is catching up fast.
