Today I finally received my chromecast stick after having placed a wait-order by Bazula here in Sweden.
Plugged it into my Samsung 50″ and connected to it from the Mac. Could connect and provide wifi credentials for it to be able to join our network.
After that I ran into a constant series of issues with the chromecast app crashing and not being able to connect. The error page claimed the problem to be that our router should be set up change from “AP isolation enabled”.
However, that is not a setting on the Netgear WNR2000.
I finally got it to work after a router restart, and I as well temporary removed the wifi extender I use for the wifi.
Now I have tried it from my iPhone iOS7 as well as an Android based HTC One, works very nicely!
Find a youtube film, tap the chromecast button in the app (appears now that chromecast usb stick is visible in the wifi network) and the streaming starts streight from internet to the stick. I can even change to another smartphone to resume the control of the streaming.
