Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem and if there's a known reason for it or solution to fix it.

A couple of days ago, my Chromecast quit playing links from Showbox and I can't figure out why. I used to get a show or movie here or there that Avia would say isn't compatible but now it's suddenly showing the error for literally everything I click, even episodes I successfully played a couple of days ago. It's not a shoebox issue because Avia will play the video until I hit the cast button.

Thinking it was my phone or Avia, I tried my wife's phone and Allcast with no success. I also thought maybe a Chromecast OTA broke compatibility, but I'm still on 15250. I even tried a factory rest on the Chromecast and wiping data on the apps involved.

I'm just out of ideas at this point. Anyone know what could be going on?

My wife and I both have Nexus 5's. She's stock and I'm on Paranoid Android.

That app isn't talked about here and a Mod will lock or delete this thread.

Sorry but showbox isn't allowed on xda because it violates copyrights and posting about it may get you and xda in trouble.
