any update on the chromecast support? 
having the slideshow player on TV directly (so without the not so perfect tab casting) would be great.

I use an android app called Dashboard Cast.

It uses widgets to build a customized screen to cast. Choose the audio widget and paste one of the many mp3 streams from the RP website such as. 

http://stream-tx3.radioparadise.com/mp3-192

No playlist but you do get a slideshow - not RP's.

Works for me - no dropouts.

I'm chromecasting RP just fine using Tunein Radio Pro. No problems or skips. No album covers or metadata though. I'll take it.

Hi
I use my tv to view/listen rp
I bought something like that http://www.alibaba.com/showroom/android-wifi-dongle-tv-box-hdmi.html, 3 or 4 years ago

Now  I'm using chromecast 2 and a bluetoth adapter, the chromecast on the tv (with mirror screen), the bluetooth audio adapter on my old stereo.
http://www.harmankardon.com/stereo-accessories/BTA+10.html
and
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-980-000910-Bluetooth-Audio-Adapter/dp/B00IQBSW28

So even my ethernet connected desktop and my wifi laptop, can play (through a browser) rp !

Thank you rp

The beta RP app works for casting, but there are frequent dropouts (ie it doesn't seem to be buffering adequately on the Chromcast).

ETvonHome's Python code also works, but there is the same buffering issue, and also I couldn't get it to relay song metadata to my phone.

Mirror mode / screencasting works well in terms of buffering (no dropouts), but there is a definite loss in audio quality.

So far the best way to have RP on my stereo is to plug my phone directly into the amp, which defeats the purpose of having a Chromecast!  I may repurpose an old phone just for this use, but then I don't know of an easy way to get remote volume control.

Has anyone managed to get this working any better, and if so what other tricks can I try while we wait for a full release of the RP app with Chromecast support?
 
It was the same for me until I switched Chromecast to Ethernet.

Apparently my router does 2.4 and 5Ghz together, and it was a problem for that dongle (some users report similar issues).

Now with ethernet adapter, perfectly stable streaming and responsiveness. Local streaming was almost not affected, for some reason.

You may try with another access point or reconfigure your router (disable 5Ghz) to see if it helps.

Very much appreciated.  Is there any way I can help sponsor this aspect of the app development?  My feeling is that it's more of an RP issue than a Chromecast issue, since the other casting apps that I've used don't seem to have the same kind of dropouts as the RP stream.

RP on Chromecast with Python and pychromecast

Hi RP fans.

The only valuable purpose of a Chromecast is to play Radio Paradise.

Unfortunately Beta Android RP app still deserve to stay Beta regarding Chromecast support ;)

It couldn't stay like that any longer.

I am a Python programming language fan, and there is a project to use Chromecast from python, pychomecast :
https://github.com/balloob/pychromecast

With pychromecast, it becomes possible to have RP on Chromecast.

I wrote a small piece of code to play RP on the chromecast, rp_chromecast.py :
"""
Plays Radio Paradise on first chromecast found on LAN
"""

from __future__ import print_function
import time
import pychromecast
from pychromecast.controllers.media import STREAM_TYPE_LIVE

cast = pychromecast.get_chromecast()

if not cast.is_idle:
    print("Killing current running app")
    cast.quit_app()
    time.sleep(3)

print("Set Volume")
cast.set_volume(0.33)

print("Playing media")
cast.play_media("http://stream-dc1.radioparadise.com/aac-320","audio/aac", stream_type=STREAM_TYPE_LIVE)
To get it working :
  • install python (python.org)
  • install pychomecast,
  • copy-paste given code to rp_chromecast.py
  • launch "python rp_chromecast.py"
I hope it can be useful to someone :)

Thanks for the info, as well as all the work you do with the apps. I can live with it as it is.  {#Biggrin}


The main ui isn't integrated with the chromecast feature yet.   So the phone and cast receiver act independently.    

The Chromecast handles the streaming,  ie you can turn off your phone once it has started.  Alternatively there is mirror mode that can be controlled outside the app that casts from the phone and requires it to remain on.

Hello. Got myself a Chromecast Audio and tried the RP beta on my Android phone. It does work but I have a couple questions about its operation that maybe of you fellow RP listeners may have an answer to. One, it is that it continues playing music on the phone at the same time it casts to the Chromecast. Two, and more about the architecture, is why is the stream cast delayed a few seconds compared to the phone? The phone is doing enough buffering, and is already off. Does it mean it is the phone doing the casting, instead of forwarding the audio stream url to the Chromecast device to stream directly? Confusing.

The Chromecast feature is working again in the beta version of the Android app.
Have also enabled Chrome audio support.  Unable to test currently but should be working.

You can install the beta version along side the store version.  It will show up in app list as RP Beta.
http://cratorsoft.com/rpbeta

The Chromecast icon should show up in the top right of settings screen when available.

 
Just installed the beta and everything is working again! Thanks a lot
