Hi, is anyone else experiencing a long delay 10-30sec) when making commands to chrimecast? When i change the url, pres play or pause or adjust the volume it takes 10-30sec for the command to be executed on the chromecast. Im using chromecast audio, openhabian on rpi3 running OH.2.4.0 . I’m writing this on my phone with no access to my openhab so i will add items, rules and sitmaps files when i get home.

Is there an alternative way of using Google Home as Audio Sink. Then i can uninstall this binding.

My current knowledge is:

  1. Chromecast Binding
    • Able to play media file on a device or group
    • NOT able to send text to use google internal TTS (so you need third party TTS service)
    • NOT able to resume
    • NOT able to broadcast
  2. Node Red in combination with MQTT binding or openHAB node
    • Able to play audio files, videos, internet radios, etc. on a device
    • NOT Able to play audio files, videos, internet radios, etc. on a group
    • Able to send text to use google internal TTS
    • NOT able to resume
    • NOT able to broadcast
    • All openHAB nodes where not stable during my test…
  3. OrangeAssist
    • Could solve all problems, but is more a PoC at the moment…

So… we get caught between a rock and a hard place. :frowning_face:

Yeah. We have some new features for node-red. The node-red-contrib-cast learned to talk to groups. So OH + MQTT + NR are my current choice.

It is very sad that there is currently no development for this binding.
