Chromecast is broken again sadly
There are a number of issues with the updated app when using chromecast. First, the app doesn't stop casting when you exit. It won't stop casting when you cast another app. When you go back to the app there is no video showing, because it thinks it's casting...but its not. You have to go into the chromecast app, and stop it casting to switch or close the app and reopen it again. that works sometimes.
Also, lots of channels are skipping at high resolution. it's sort of random which streams skip at what res. Some skip at high res and others that lower res.
Personally, I don't love the new format, but I can get used to that if the app works properly.
I hate to ask, but did you actually test this?

Since ios 12 came out i dont have a cast icon ok my iphone any more... i bought the chromecast for twitvh and it doesnt work...
When I try to cast from my Android phone, it plays video and audio on my TV while also playing audio on my phone. If I scrub on y phone, the TV scrubs while the phone keeps playing audio from before the scrub.
Amazon doesn't care about Chromecast 1080p60 streaming not working because they're at war with Google, due to Amazon's implementation of YouTube on their newest Alexa device and Google slapping their wrist for it.
It won't even let me chromecast from the app anymore. 2 days ago it was working and now I get the message 'Stream not supported'. I loved that you could chromecast streams but now one of my favourite features is gone?
