according to places, VLC 3 can send to a Google Chromecast
device, but it does not work for me.


"This feature is currently only available in version 3.0 of VLC for

version of VLC to continue."

Oh, shit.  :-(

I've got a few chromecast so I'm also interested to get this to work
although it's no pressing need. In the forum there seems to be some
folks that have got it to work in Linux.

ctrl-f and search for chromecast.

From one of the first threads I tried a cli command and a video that I
know is good with my Chromecast Ultra. My Ultra sits on my local LAN on

$ vlc -vv --sout "#chromecast" --sout-chromecast-ip=
--sout-chromecast-conversion-quality=0 --demux-filter=demux_chromecast

Thanks :-)

It works :)

Ah, but what I want VLC for is videos that I know the Chromecast Ultra
doesn't handle, need conversion.

Anyway, I'll try.

Cheers / Saludos,
