Chromecast Audio Streaming - Jeffajam - 01-06-2016

Hey guys, first poster here.

Just installed OE 6.0.0 on my Raspberry Pi and wondered if it is possible to output audio to the Chromecast Audio?

Chromecast support is not likely to be implemented anytime soon, since their software is proprietary and also contains DRM. Whereas Kodi, and thus OpenELEC is based on open-source. Having another PITA such as Apple's Airplay (which needs to be reverse-engineered every couple of months) will not be something the Kodi developers will be happily looking forward to.

Sorry. :-)

Yeah, I thought as much. Well that's £30 wasted for an audio streaming solution Sad

Any recommendations to use as an alternative to connect OE to a HiFi setup wirelessly?


Chromecast Audio Streaming - klojum - 01-06-2016

Hmmm, wirelessly... Not really, although I'm that into audio setups with AV-receivers and whatnot. OE is working on BT-audio on upcoming versions, but I don't think that will be a handy & useful option for your situation.

Does OpenElec support audio over DLNA/UPNP as this would be a viable solution?


Chromecast Audio Streaming - klojum - 01-06-2016

I guess DLNA would be an option. You'll need to enable the UPnP option in Kodi/OE for that. Results vary per receiving device, as most of the times, everyone has their own opinion how to implement DLNA/UPnP.

Unlike Chromecast, Chromecast Audio (CCA) does not require DRM. It appears there is already a linux solution to stream to a CCA.

With that available as an example, any chance of adding it for music on OpenELEC? It would be really nice as you could then do whole house audio.
