Chromecast Support Contribution

Hi.

I was almost ready to kick Plex to the curb (been looking for a reason to for quite some time) in favor of Jellyfin, and then I tried Chromecast from the Web UI and the Android app, and couldn’t get either to work! So I think this might perhaps be a good area to contribute to. I’m really not all that familiar with Web or Android development, but it’s just code right? Learning opportunity.

Does anyone specifically “own” Chromecast support across one or more platforms? That is, is there someone with whom I should sync up / coordinate?

Thanks!

We’re always open to more contributors to Jellyfin. If you’re wanting to chat with some other developers about where best to start you’ll usually find them on the matrix chat rooms.
