I have setup openhab to cast a video (stored locally, accessible via http) on certain times. The video is located under openhab2 html folder.
Was working fine the moment i went overseas, got stuck and came back home after 6 months, so i don’t know the previous version, and probably a couple of versions has been released since then.
The script would simply push the local video’s URL to chromecast playuri item via rest API, it would play on NVIDIA shields no worries.
Now, it would attempt to do that play for a little (audio only) with chopping sound and stop after around 2 seconds.
below is sequence of events.

The wierd thing is that Nvidia sheild would -during the 2 seconds- should “Unknown” chromecast built-in unknown playing on the screen
any idea what more debugging i need to do? casting YouTube video from my mobile to NVIDIA shield works fine, NVIDIA shield is updated to the latest FW
