Default Chromecast and Curl issue

hi,

I'm trying to use curl to play you tube videos with a post command e.g.

curl -v -H "Content-Type: application/json" 192.168.0.XX:8008/apps/YouTube -X POST -d v=XXXXXX′

I've checked my ip address is correct, and that the v='XXX'' is a valid youtube video, but the YouTube app launches on the chromecast, flickers for a moment before refusing to play the video. Curl returns successfully without any errors. Has this been blocked on the chromecast now, or is there something I'm missing to get this working?

any pointers gratefully recieved.
