Chromecast: Cannot process audioStream. No coordinator has been initialized


I have 3 google Homes connected to a group:


    chromecast:audio:esszimmer [ ipAddress=""]
    chromecast:audio:bad [ ipAddress=""]
    chromecast:audio:wohnzimmer [ ipAddress=""]
    chromecast:chromecast:10f28c846ccfa191b3eadbc73781807d //BAD
    chromecast:chromecast:3171c1738883c4b964ac6a199ad2686c //Esszimmer


Player homeWohnzimmer_Player “Google Home Wochnzimmer” (gHome) {channel=“chromecast:audio:wohnzimmer:control”}
Dimmer homeWohnzimmer_Volume “Google Home Wochnzimmer Volume” (gHome) {channel=“chromecast:audio:wohnzimmer:volume”}

Player homeEsszimmer_Player “Google Home Esszimmer” (gHome) {channel=“chromecast:audio:esszimmer:control”}
Dimmer homeEsszimmer_Volume “Google Home Wochnzimmer Volume” (gHome) {channel=“chromecast:audio:esszimmer:volume”}

Player homeBad_Player “Google Home Bad” (gHome) {channel=“chromecast:audio:bad:control”}
Dimmer homeBad_Volume “Google Home Wochnzimmer Volume” (gHome) {channel=“chromecast:audio:bad:volume”}

Player homeAll_Player “Google Home All” (gHome) {channel=“chromecast:audiogroup:A30AE065-9E04-475E-B4B0-78F7591B7747:control”}
Dimmer homeAll_Volume “Google Home Akk Volume” (gHome) {channel=“chromecast:audiogroup:A30AE065-9E04-475E-B4B0-78F7591B7747:volume”}

with the following commands:

	say("Hello from openHAB!")

I get these error messages:

2019-01-04 19:52:24.207 [INFO ] [t.internal.handler.ChromecastHandler] - Cannot get volume. No coordinator has been initialized.

2019-01-04 19:52:24.209 [INFO ] [t.internal.handler.ChromecastHandler] - Cannot process audioStream. No coordinator has been initialized.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Hi, did you solve?
Me too gettin an analogous error
can not get volume. No coordinator has been inizialized

same here. My openhab 2.5.2 w/ chromecast binding would work for about 2-3 days. After that I would get that error. The only way to fix that is to restart openhab.
