iOS App that supports Chromecast?

Postby msujdog » Wed Oct 07, 2015 11:09 pm

I just got the new Chromecast audio. I'm able to stream subsonic from a chrome browser on my Windows 10 machine perfectly. Looking forward to getting a couple of these and doing whole house audio.

Is there an iOS app that supports Chromecast casting? I couldn't find one. (I currently use iSub). Sounds like anyone can develop one with the open code. While it's certainly easy to stream from my home computer, it would be nicer to be able to change songs from my phone.

Ok, how about this -- are there any ways to get Jukebox mode to output to a DNLA source like a Chromecast? In Jukebox, subsonic will play audio on the source computer. If only I could make that source appear in a Chrome browser, then I could cast that to the Chromecast.

hmm...

I'm in exactly the same boat as the original poster and hoping to find a solution (I'm using iSub and Windows 7 64bit).

I did find something called Chromecast Audio Stream here: "https://github.com/acidhax/chromecast-audio-stream" which is supposed to redirect all PC audio to Chromecast but it's not working for me. When I right clicking the icon in the system tray to select my cast device absolutely nothing happens (ie no right click menu is displayed). Maybe this will help someone else. Is there another iphone/ipad app (AVsub maybe) that would allow jukebox mode and Chromecast to work together?
