I'm watching a media file on my Nexus 7 (Cyanogenmod) using LocalCast or a similiar app (doesn't matter which one) and after a random time period, Chomecast just restarts (?). At least it shows the spinning Chrome-icon and afterwards the default standby-wallpapers.

My router and wi-fi are fine, my tablet is fine.

Maybe it's the fault of my ROM, who knows. I just want to ask people how they fixed it if they had the same problem.

Does it happen for all videos, or only certain ones?
Also, is your Chromecast in an enclosed area or near a heat source (yes, the TV counts)?

To all videos and my Chromecast isn't near any heat source or similiar.

Did you get the spinning Chrome-logo-ball as well?


Thank you both for answering.

Yes. That happened couple of days before one time. Today it's free crashing while playing videos on YouTube. I am tired of watching this.

If you aren't using wall power, highly recommend switching to it, at least to reduce variables. Also try factory reset in case some internal settings have become corrupt.
Wish there was a way to force re-update of firmware for stock but I don't know of any.

Did both, sadly didn't help. Since venki5star is using a Stock OS, it doesn't seem to be a problem of my Cyanogenmod-installation. But who knows.

Difficult to say, unfortunately. Keep us updated.

I am concluding this as Google end issues. It worked better yesterday evening. Now from today morning, YouTube app started crashing again. Will try other services and let you guys know.

Works perfectly with local files through BubbleUPnP. Definitely problem in YouTube service.
