i was last days busy with my Linux to play with my VLC 3.4.  but my player was not able to find my TV chrome cast under option Render. maybe you have the same issues with your players. let me tell  you how I have fixed it.

Please ensure that the following tools are installed on your Linux System  :

  • libmicrodns – VLC can find the chromecast device and it shows up in Playback > Renderer menu
  • protobuf – enables streaming to the selected device in Playback > Renderer menu

Please Install /Update  VLC  Media Player

Fedora :

dnf install libmicrodns protobuf 

Ubuntu/Debian

apt install install libmicrodns protobuf 

Manjaro/ArchLinux

pacman  -Syyu  libmicrodns protobuf

Opensuse

zypper in  libmicrodns protobuf

 

Now restart the media-player and  enjoy
