Cannot connect to Chromecast devices on Windows 11

Huum, we have one of them at the office and we made the test on this one before the Chromecast update was available. I will do more test on it and follow up on your behavior.

Thanks!
As I said, it seems NOT the port number 8009. I temporarily opened the port on my home network and was able to connect to the port using telnet.
Audirvana Origin is able to connect to my built-in Chromecast device without any changes to my network configuration (port shares, firewall, etc.) - it is just that this type of old Chromecast dongle does not support a function or feature that Audirvana requires (at least: this is what the log file tells me).

Hello, with me there is the same problem.
I have two chromecasts that I normally use on other applications on the same computer and on other devices such as android smartphone on the same network. Everything streams with no problem on both chromecasts except Audirvana Studio.

I have checked all the tips written before and I have good settings in windows, still there is an error when trying to connect Audirvana to chromecast.

The same problem occurs on two computers - a desktop and a laptop with windows 11 - both with cable and wi-fi connection.

I recently used a 2012 macbook with Catalina and on the same network it was possible to stream to the chromecast from Audirvana. On the macbook the problem did not occur.
After reading a lot of information and checking a lot of advice, I came to the conclusion that the problem is a bug in the Audirvana Studio application on Windows 11

I would like to ask you very much to fix this problem, I think there are more such people but they did not write here asking for help.

I am sending screen shots of wi-fi and ethernet connection with debug files.

Hi guys,

Sorry for the late reply. There is something we need to investigate here. I have been able to reproduce this on our Windows 11. The issue seems to occur with Google Chromecast device and only on Windows, not on MacOS.

Hello,
Are you working on a solution to this bug ?
Please let me know when it can be fixed ?
I am very keen to be able to use chromecast audio with Audirvana , to listen to something quickly.
If additional information is needed, I can write here.
Thank you.

Hi @jeronimo,

I was on vacation for the last two weeks so couldn’t come back to you. In the meantime we have been able to identify what was wrong, it will be fixed in the next update of Audirvāna Studio/Origin which should come next week :wink:

Thank you for your response Antoine.
This is very good news, I am glad to hear that you are responding to your customers’ requests.
I look forward to the update and will write here if it works :wink:

Hi Antoine!
I guess the Chromecast bug fix + update will also apply to Audirvana Origin, not just Audirvana Studio, right?
Probably they have the same software core as far as Chromecast connections are concerned…
–Klaus

Hi @KPB, you are right, it will also apply for Audirvāna Origin, I will change my post to avoid any confusion on this :wink:
