I changed my VPN provider(UnblockUS) because it wasnt working on some sections of GooglePlay (cant buy and watch movies(region lock)) but everything other was okay.
Now im using TunnelBear everything is fine but,when i set VPN On it connects to TunnelBear servers. Then my Chromecast dissapears from list of devices(in Chrome browser PC only). When i turn off VPN Chromecast device is back in list.
On other devices like my Find 5 or iPad 3 while connected to Tunnelbear VPN shows my Chromecast device fine.
I tryed to bridge soft adapter(TBear thing) to my LAN adapter but i lose VPN and cant use GooglePlay.

Any help to resolve this issue?

I am outside US. For me, I enable VPN (not using tunnelbear though), buy a movie, then disable the VPN, then cast. Does that work for you?

I did tryed that and it doesnt work.
If i buy a movie and turn off VPN i cant cast it because it cant retrieve licence for playing.
Tryed that on phone/tablet and PC

Did you change your credit card to US?

Just remove your current credit card, then add it back again, with a real zip code and phone number. Then wait 1-2 hours (at this time mine always show payment denied).

Now I am able to buy music without VPN even. For Movies I still need VPN though. But once its bought, I don't need VPN anymore for either.

Technically you shouldn't expect this to work because the Chromecast has to be on the same LAN as the casting device, and when you use a VPN on the casting device you are putting it on a different LAN.

Not to mention that if you are using the VPN on the casting device to bypass geoblocking, then it probably wouldn't work even if you could see the Chromecast because the Chromecast also has to use the VPN to bypass geoblocking. You would have to set up the VPN in your router so that it affects both the casting device and the Chromecast. You can do that with advanced router firmware like DD-WRT, but not with most consumer routers using stock firmware.

Suggestion
I have read through your issue of concern and I guess you should go for CyberGhost. It was established in Romania in the year 2011, by uniting a strong belief in confidentiality with German engineering to make a VPN that gives an anonymous, sage, and dependable service. It’s really simple to utilize, rapid connections, and variety of servers are just some of the numerous perks underlined in hundreds of positive user reviews. Go for https://vpn.review/set-up-chromecast-vpn/ today to learn a lot more. CyberGhost provides a 7-day free trial on Android and iOS, a Windows free trial, and a 45-day money-back assurance on all platforms. Just go for it as I don’t think so you will find anything else better than this one.
