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 :
- – VLC can find the chromecast device and it shows up in Playback > Renderer menu
- – enables streaming to the selected device in Playback > Renderer menu
Please Install /Update VLC Media Player
apt install install
Now restart the media-player and enjoy
