Question Issues With Chromecast

Hi All, I've just joined this forum so apologies if this question has been asked before..

I recently bought the chromecast and so far loving it! But lately whenever I try and cast a tab from Google Chrome to play a video (not Youtube), the video plays fine, but previously using Win+T I could toggle between the tab (currently playing full screen video) to another browser and use it simultaneously. I now find this is impossible, and not sure what the issue is. If I toggle between tabs, the video playing also minimizes..

Any help would be greatly appreciated and not sure if I have managed to explain it properly!

Thanks in advance..

I tried doing all the steps others have mentioned, but it still hasn't worked for me. Do you know if there is any other workaround for this or if Google is planning on fixing this in the future?

The "Fullscreen anything" extension didn't work for you?

I'm not sure whether it's Chrome itself, the page, the graphics card/driver, or what, but different people get different behavior.
I also don't know if it's meant to fullscreen on the desktop while doing other things or not. Might be the folks who have it working are just lucky.

Worth putting in a Chrome and Chromecast report anyway. If Google sees enough feedback, maybe they'll take a look.
