Default A real solution for Chromecast Play Music.

So, for me, I can only play a partial song before it cuts out. Everything else seems to work fine.

I've called LG, and Verizon - they've never heard of the problem (big surprise ) . I'll get a hold of Google too but for now, let's try to figure this out.

My guess is a flaky Wifi connection. What is everyone else's opinion based on experience with the LG G2 and Chromecast, and what should we do?

Possible fix in post 23 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=49363241
Edit-It didn't really work.

Guessing your right with the WiFi... Have you tried Netflix or YouTube?

Google's problem then. Netflix would use way more bandwidth streaming music. Chromecast in my opinion is still pretty beta, and new updates cone about once a month, so maybe they'll fix it.

I see your point, and you're not wrong but...
It works flawlessly on every other device I've used(sgs3, og incredible, iphone 4s, iphone 5,pc...etc.). This leads me to believe that something is screwy with the g2. Just looking for a meantime solution until this is worked out.

Edit-
Also, according to Verizon and LG this isn't a problem. So, maybe not even on their radar. Going to get to Google tonight but I'm guessing I'll get the same song and dance - "not our problem, call lg" or/ "not our problem, call Verizon".

Surround or HDMI? I don't have my G2 yet because my first one was a lemon, so I can't check for you...
Have you tried streaming from your PC? There is an extension for chrome that will cast a tab from your browser to chromecast, you could try that.

Of course I did. I didn't post a new thread without extensive googly searching for a solution.
I do however appreciate your input.

Now, g2 Chromecast users, what say you?

I also have this stupid issue. My nexus 4 and even my two galaxy nexuses don't have this problem. It will finish a song and then just not play anything. If u don't do anything.. Randomly it will just start another song

I'm trying to remember if I had this problem on CyanogenMOD.

I tried this this morning, said it fixed my Wifi. I was unable to test due to network problems at my house.
