I am hoping that I am not the only one, but I am now totally unable to cast any Crunchroll programs from either my phone, tablet or laptop to my Chromecast. It just gets stuck on the "Ready to Cast" screen (which apparently it is not).

As I have been using it with no problems for quite some time, I assume that something has changed, and that something has broken the casting ability?

Rebooting the Chromecast does nothing, nor does uninstalling and reinstalling the Crunchyroll app.

Would love a fix if anyone has one.

I've seen a couple of reports of a recent forced system software update by Google breaking the ability to cast from our apps. I'll be forwarding those reports.

I'm experiencing the same issue. Since today I can't cast anything from crunchyroll. At first I thought it was my device but I can cast content from youtube, twitch and chrome without any trouble. Any ideas? Thanks!

As of today I'm also experiencing this same issue. Youtube, Netflix, AnimeLab all work fine casting to the chromecast except Crunchyroll.

Ah, seeing some more activity in this post compared to the other thread. So... Same here. Started experiencing problems yesterday. Both from android as from desktop. No problems with other apps. Sad to notice there's not workaround, apparently.

Ah, well.. Can't really find much about other apps not working anymore (and no workarounds), but to add some more info to the thread:

- Chromecast firmware version: 38401 (the one released on Jul 28)

Adding my +1 to this, spotted/started this morning. No problems with other casting apps.

Working around it by using the Plex channel, but it doesn't track progress due to Cruncyroll API limitations, which would eventually become tedious.

I have a similar problem, although I can still cast from my phone, it is only my chrome browser that I can't. It gets stuck at "sending to chromecast", with the icon just continuously animating.

To update: Crunchyroll seems to be casting okay from Chrome (v44.0.2403.125 on OSX), but not from the Android app (v1.1.4).

The app appears to hang on the "Casting to Chromecast" screen while the progress bar shows 0:00 current pos and 0:00 remaining. Meanwhile the Chromecast itself does nothing but sit on the "Ready to cast" Crunchyroll screen. The Chromecast itself is still responsive and doesn't appear to be a problem.

Same issue for me (does nothing but sit on the "Ready to cast" Crunchyroll screen) with android app (v1.1.4).

Tested on:
Note 3, android v4.4.2
Nexus 7, android v5.1.1
Chromecast, FW v38401

It will work if I force stop and clear the Crunchyroll app data.
Still works if disconnected and reconnected to chromecast.
Still works if chromecast power cycled.
Stops working when app fully closed and restarted.
