Default Chromecast Apps that Cause Force Close on G3 ROMs

On the G3 ROMs, when you are casting to the Chromecast, some apps are causing a Force Close when you pull down on the notification bar. I've compiled a list to indicate which apps will result in a Force Close, and which ones will work as normal.

Apps That Work Without Any Problems

AllCast
Photos
  • Casting photos works
  • No problem when pulling down notification bar
Videos
  • Sound is garbled on videos taken with camera; will have to test other videos
  • No problem when pulling down notification bar

Dayframe
  • Casting photos works
  • No problem when pulling down notification bar

Dehumanize Your Friends
  • Casting game works
  • No problem when pulling down notification bar

Netflix
  • Casting videos works
  • No problem when pulling down notification bar

Google+ Photos
  • Casting online photos works
  • No problem when pulling down notification bar

Plex
  • Casting videos works
  • No problem when pulling down notification bar

Apps That Result in a Force Close

Google Play Music
  • Casting online music works
  • Force close when pulling down notification bar

PocketCasts
  • Casting podcasts works
  • Force close when pulling down notification bar

YouTube
  • Casting videos works
  • Force close when pulling down notification bar

Of course, this is not an exhaustive list. Please let me know if you've tested other apps and I'll update this post.
AT&T LG G2

Cloudyflex also suffers the same issue.

Just to be clear, it's SystemUI.apk that is FC-ing. Endless FC loops. Only reboot can help.

Back to topic,
LocalCast app - > FC
Yatse - > works fine


EDIT

so apparently casting pictures won't trigger the FC, but videos and music will..
Somebody at Google+ managed to get a logcat about this problem

Quote:
The following were the error i got in the logcat.
java.lang.RuntimeException: Error receiving broadcast Intent { act=android.media.VOLUME_CHANGED_ACTION flg=0x10 (has extras) } in com.android.systemui.statusbar
I don't know whether it is relevant to ask in this community. But any help is much appreciated.*
Any ideas?

Hopefully Optimus can figure it out as I use localcast a lot on my phone.

Add to the list of apps that dont work "Web Video Caster". Plays the videos but as soon as you pull the notifications, Systemui goes in an FC craze
Devices:
-LG G2
-iPhone 4S
-Nexus 5

Actually I'm using Bruce's ROM, which is based on stock.

Anyway, there's already a fix for this issue now.. needs xposed framework though

I have this issue on the stock V10a-EUR firmware. Can somebody with the same firmware confirm? Now V10e is out maybe it solves this issue.
