My Question or Issue

I haven't been able to cast any podcast with video to my screens connected with Chromecast since months ago. Now i got an android tv device from the local internet+tv company with the Spotify app and it doesn't play the video. What is goin on? This is absurd, i used to be able to watch videos from podcasts on my TV/screens with Chromecast before!!

You guys need to solve this, you have some exclusive video podcasts on your platform and don't support casting videos?!

Shame!! I am thinking of stopping my subscriptions and fully move to YouTube Music .

Hey there @0-up456fwc_zk

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

Could you let us know which troubleshooting steps you've already tried? That way we can avoid any repeating steps.

 

On another note, could you let us know if this started happening after a specific event such as an update? 

 

Also, would you mind trying if the same happens in case you're casting from a different device?
 

We'll be on the lookout.

Sorry I took long to reply, I got hopeless thinking I will never be able to get an answer.. thanks for your reply but i still have the issue.

 

I tried with multiple devices: casting to two different Chromecast devices from my Android phone, and from my Android TV Spotify app.

 

Always testing with The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

 

The results are always the same: I press on play and it simply doesn't work, it does nothing.

 

It used to work more than a year ago, but not anymore. I could try to record a video and share it here.

Attaching video of my Android TV and Spotify app

And here i attach a video from my Google Pixel 6 Pro and Spotify app.

First i am trying to cast a podcast video to the living room tv Chromecast, and it just never manages to connect.

Then i try doing the same but with music and it works.

And last, i try again with the video podcast and when pressing play it does nothing.

 

Please help

Hey @0-up456fwc_zk,

 

Thanks for the reply and the videos.

 

You mentioned you've gotten a new TV and that you were able to play video through a Chromecast device. Do you mean an actual Chromecast dongle or a Chromecast implementation on the TV itself? If you have the dongle, give it a try. If you mean the TV itself, it is possible, that the manufacturer hasn't included the Spotify Video API yet. This would mean you won't be able to play the video part of the podcasts on the TV.

 

We were able to cast the video part of the podcast to a Chromecast dongle connected to a TV.

 

That's why we advise you to get in touch with the manufacturer of the TV and ask for more information on that. You can also check for some firmware updates.

 

Keep us posted,

 

Cheers!

No, the tv is not new, and it used to work before.

It doesn't work casting from a mobile device to my Chromecast either...

I tried with another Android phone to connect Spotify to my Chromecast and it only works for music, for podcasts it just does nothing 

Hey there,
