    LMS as a ChromeCast target

    Hi Everyone,

    one question to integrate with ChromeCast. I found some great plugins from Philippe to use chromecast devices in LMS. That works pretty well.
    However is there also a way that the LMS Server appears as a chromecast device?

    If there's something it would be good to know.

    Thanks S

    I don't think that the open source world has a way to emulate a Chromecast receiver - which would mean ... no.

    Edit:
    I think the reason is not that the protocol is not known - but that Google plays an active role in the dialogue and without have a token from them then it cannot work).
    Philippe will know the details and has probably written about it in this forum somewhere.

    Thank you for the information. I assumed something like this :-)

    Thanks S

    I achieved this by getting a Chromecast Audio and plugging this into the line in, and using the WaveInput plugin. It works well, the Chromecast sound can be played across the Squeezebox devices nicely.
