I'm happy to enjoy my videos with chromecast!

 

But i experienced problem with error, "Playback failed for 'file name'. Media failed to load" when using remote network.

 

My server is in restricted network, so i can access the server with port 6000 only (function: Listen on  Custom Port).

Not using chromecast but iPhone or iPad screen, airvideo HD has no problem in spite of restricted network access.

But turning on the chromecast icon(button), the app give me that error message.

 

Doesn't "ChromeCast Support" support with custom port to listen?

Hi,

 

Chromecast support currently only works on local network.

I would also really like for Chromecast to work with remote server access. I bought one for a relative for this reason and it doesn't work. Does anyone know if the same problem exists with appletv? I'm 30 hours from home so I would have to go buy one (if I could even find one in this podunk ozark town) to try it out.

Perhaps with the new Ethernet adaptor (assuming you're in a hotel)?

This should be fixed in next server update.
