    Default How do you stream your music to your TV using Chromecast?

    So I have music in the Google Music app, a couple songs I got from the google play store and some I got from iTunes and uploaded them to my phone. From what I understand...you can only stream music from the play store right? Well I did that and it worked, but I decided to try it with a song I bought from iTunes and it still worked. I tried another and it also worked. Then I tried another one and it didn't work and gave me this message "Unable to play the song. Can't play a sideloaded song remotely." So....what IS the reason that some songs play while song songs don't? Thanks

    For the songs that worked, were they uploaded to Google Play Music (like via desktop)?

    It will work with songs you uploaded to Google server using Google Music Manager.

    I let it upload all of my music that has been in iTunes on my desktop to my Google Play account. Just start it one night before going to bed, and it will run and not mess with anything.
