Default A few hiccups with Chromecast?

Hey there,

I recently transitioned from an AppleTV to a ChromeCast. However, I seem to be having a small problem with Chromecast.

I have Chromecast running perfectly, it streams as it needs to stream from my phone on Youtube, Viki, and Netflix. However, when I go back to my homescreen or I lock my device, the streaming stops altogether.

If i'm not mistaken, wasn't Chromecast the device that allowed phone users to minimize the app and then proceed to browse the net using their phone?

Is anyone having this problem? I'm currently using an iPhone 5S , I also tested this on the S3 and it was the same problem.

Your understanding is correct - normal (optimized) playback of content from the Internet should not require the casting device. You should be able to reboot or turn off the casting device without interrupting the stream.

What applications are you casting from?
