Difficulties with the Chromecast Binding

Hello there,

I am new to coding and very new to OpenHAB. I started researching/working with it only a few weeks ago. I’ve managed to set it up and started experimenting with the Chromecast binding for a work project.

What I want to do is send a URL of a Youtube video to the playuri channel and then play/pause it via the control channel but that doesn’t work. Play/pause commands only work when there’s already a Youtube video playing which was started from the Youtube page by clicking the Chromecast symbol.

Is there anyone who could help me with this? I would really appreciate it.
