    Default YouTube won't cast

    I have tried it on my phone and laptop. YouTube's dedicated cast button won't let me cast videos. If I'm on my laptop watching YouTube I can cast the tab, but I can't cast directly from YouTube. Anyone else having this problem? I get the message "Brain Freeze. Activity aborted." It has worked before with no problem. I have tried resetting the Chromecast to no avail. I thought perhaps the problem was my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4), but like I said, it does the same thing on my laptop.

    This same thing happened with Flixter. Netflix is off an on.

    Default Re: YouTube won't cast

    Sounds like a router issue if it is happening on multiple devices. First check your router against this list: https://support.google.com/chromecas.../3477832?hl=en

    Then check that upnp is enabled, igmp is enabled, AP isolation is disabled, and you are not using a vpn or proxy when this is happening. If you have mac address filtering enabled, you will need to add the MAC address of the chromecast to your router.
