Hi,

Great station, always has been!


I haven't casted a browser tab in awhile.   
Took it for a spin and it didn't go very well.  My audio was very garbled.
No reason it shouldn't work though.   

But there is a big difference between the two strategies.
When using the Android app,  the cast dongle runs everything locally.   ie  you can turn off your phone and it will keep going.
While when casting a tab,  your sending a video/audio stream to the dongle.   
Regarding the stopping,  
Had a few complaints about that recently.
That might be related to a new browser sleep feature for "inactive" tabs.
Will look into it.

Hey - RP and Chromecast on Android is having problems - several phones, latest APP and OS. Symptoms: once you get a stream playing, go to cast, stream stops and app gets stuck - can't change channels, go to cache, forward, play - just stops working until the app is forced to stop via settings/apps/

Have noticed a few people having issues with Chromecast so far haven't been able to reproduce that.  
The main thing at the moment that can help with the app freezing on some models is to disable any battery optimization.

Most commonly 
phone settings -> app -> rp -> battery -> unrestricted.

But setting keeps moving across models and Android versions.

Hi,
 
Will Chromecast support be added to the iPad app?  If not, what other option do I have to use the Radio Paradise iPad app and stream the music to my RME ADI2 DAC?  I can Airplay music to my amplifier but would rather it goes via my DAC.  The Chromecast setup works from the Google Home app, but that's no use for the RP app.
 
Thanks.
 

Adding Chromecast support to iOS apps is not at all easy. It's nothing at all like supporting Airplay2. We'll be adding Chromecast support to our new Android app (currently in Beta, you can sign up for that in the Play Store), but iOS support isn't currently in the works.

In the past usually required power-cycling  something,  probably router.   Another thing that can mess it up is if the phones clock time is out of sync.

Chromecast sort-of works for me, but it is very flaky.
 
The symptom I have is that it works for a few songs, and then there will be a station announcement and after that no new music is played.  If I manually re-cast, then it may work or what happens more frequently is that it will re-play the last half or so of the most recent song and then the station announcement will play and it will stop again.
 
Also, it will frequently not work at all when I cast.  Instead of playing anything, it will connect to the Chromecast but show "No Media Selected" in the cast window and nothing plays at all.  I can hit "Stop Casting" and re-try but once this starts happening it will never work again until I cast with another app and then go back to RP in which case it might work or might not.
 
This has been happening for months with the beta app for me.  I've sent numerous comments to the developer using the beta feedback on the Google Play store, but no apparent progress has been made on this issue.
 
Am I just unlucky or do other people have this same problem?

NOTE: This is when casting to Chromecast Audio.  When I use Chromecast Video, it does seem to work better, but still never as reliably as when using the Roku app for example which will play for days without interruption.
 
NOTE2: I used to use the Tunein Radio app which has Radio Paradise and used to cast to Chromecast Audio reliably, but recently it has also been super flakey, so I've gone back to trying to play using the RP Android App.
 
NOTE3: I don't think it is my network since I can stream 4K video plus multiple 1080p simultanously without hiccups on my connection.

It's an open beta.   The button to join is near the bottom of the RP page in the play store app.
Can take up to an hour for the update to be available after joining.

Hi, have you access to the beta app?
I’m based in the East Midlands in England, UK. Happy to contribute to beta testing.

Hi folks,  I'm running the RP app on my TV, via Google's Home app. 

The approach is to cast the screen of your device onto your TV.

Here's the link to the Google Support page for anyone who'd rather steer clear of 3rd party app, while Bill and Rebecca work on Chromecast support for the RP app:
