    Default Couldn't play the track you requested

    Each time I use my Chromecast to stream music to my TV I get the "couldn't play the track you requested" after about an hour. This occurs not matter what track I try (even if they have never been pinned) or device. This has occurred with my Xoom and RAZR M.

    That's odd. I'll test this tomorrow when my daughter isn't sleeping and get back to you with my results. I'll try from a HTC One and Galaxy Tab 10.1.

    Thank you!

    It is quite odd. I was doing some searching and found some indicator that a small number of people have this issue.

    Sent from my second brain.. Okay it is the only one working.

    Well I haven't trouble shot it yet but I can attest that I played Google Music through my TV [from Nexus 10] for most of the day a few weeks ago while painting my Kitchen. I did not experiance the any couldn't play track issue.

    In my experiance using Google music when I do get a "couldn't play the track you requested" type message it usually occurs at a spot on my coommute notorious for messing up hand offs between cell towers.

    My router's wifi occasionally got gummed up with the Chromecast on, whether or not I was using it. I'm trying 3rd party firmware and so far, so good. When this happened while playing Google Music, my phone wouldn't recognize it was no longer communicating with the Chromecast and gave me the same error message. Powering off the router was a temporary fix.

    Definitely something to explore. Still have been unable to do any testing, sorry folks.

    i'm also periodically getting this problem. closing and restarting google music solves, but it's annoying.
