Cast Youtube link

Hi guys, I tried to cast Youtube like to my Google Chromecast.

String youtube_gc “Youtube links” {channel =“chromecast:chromecast:c528e43c0e4a488cda36b71f89233659:playuri”}

rules: (I’ve added to a exist rule, when the item state is changing to ON):


And It’s not working, this is the follow errors I get when I trying to lunch this:

2020-03-06 16:20:28.647 [hingStatusInfoChangedEvent] - 'chromecast:chromecast:c528e43c0e4a488cda36b71f89233659' changed from ONLINE to OFFLINE (COMMUNICATION_ERROR): Unable to load media

Google home - Hack to play live YouTube live streams with a routine

I think you didn’t understand what I try to do.

There is a Bind call “Chromecast Binding” by Kai Kreuzer.
In this binding there is a Channel called “Play URI” this should be able to Play a Youtube URL I want on my google chormecase thorw OpenHab system, but It’s not working … and as I show my erros above, I try to get help about it here.

I could not get youtube to play on my chromecast either

Are you expecting the ‘default media player’ within the ChromeCast to play a YouTube video, that would normally be played with the YouTube app within the ChromeCast?

I’m not aware of a way to select the player app in the ChromeCast devices.

If it were, we could call TuneIn stations
