Default Chromecast suddenly stopped playing Showbox links

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.

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