Video codec for Cast to Chromecast 3 ?

Added by Jose Antonio 18 days ago

I have a chromecast 3 and i see all compatible formats here:
https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media
I have tvheadend 4.2.8-27 on libreelec.
I create transcode/av-lib and I filled it out like pictures 1 and 2.
But when I run tvhclient on my android phone and cast to chromecast (I have paid version of tvhclient) I can't watch the video correctly, I tried with others codecs but is same or I can´t see anything.
I only see the picture 3.

It has been years since I used my chromecast and it was the original version but it was working fine. Unfortunately I do not remember the settings I used. Did you try looking here: https://github.com/rsiebert/TVHClient/wiki/Using-Google-Chromecast

it does not work, now I update to tvheadend 4.3 and I only use h264_omx: OpenMAX codec.
Why?, I try to use another one, but I can't activate it.
I use HTS Tvheadend 4.3-1850 ~ LibreELEC Tvh-addon v9.1.901.444

I found my old chromecast over the weekend and plugged it in. Of course it immediately started an automatic update. After that, I could not cast anything. A factory reset and reconfigure allowed me to cast from chrome browser and VLC, but was not working with MXPlayer. Sorry, did not have time to troubleshoot anymore...
