    Default LG G3 Casting your screen to chromecast

    Does this work for anyone else? I went into the chrome cast app and clicked cast screen then my chrome cast and it keeps trying to connect but never does though I can stream YouTube or Netflix just fine.

    I know it is beta but I thought some people were able to get it to work. Help?

    That feature showed up well before it was activated. It was activated about a week ago on nexus devices and a few others (S5, M8). I am not sure if the G3 is supported yet. Make sure to have the latest version of Google play services and of the chromecast app.

    Also others have had to plug and unplug chromecast a few times for it to work.

    I do see when I downloaded Google Play Services for my G2 and sideloaded it, it was version 5.0.81 and checking my G3, the current version is 5.0.84. Must have been an update recently and guessing it killed it for the G3. I don't want to downlevel to test my theory so will have to wait and see.

    I did update it. So there shouldn't be any issues there...

    Out of curiousity can you check and tell me what version of Google Play Services is installed on your phone by going to Settings > Apps > Downloaded (or All) and click on Google Play Services to see version? Can you also tell me version of Chromecast?

    Thanks.

    Thanks. Interesting you are using an older version of Google Play Services. Like I said, I am on 5.0.84.
    I have same version of ChromeCast.

    Anyone else having problems casting full time to chromecast?

    I can cast from apps like youtube that supports chromecast but if you choose to cast full time,
    for me it says it is connecting to my chromecast then disconnects.

    I figure it's a bug for G3 and awaiting updates to either the Chromecast app or Play Services...
    But still surprised there are not more inquiries on this unless I am the only one having a problem.

    I was having problems mirror casting, I changed the runtime from art to dalvik and that solved my issue. Its been working flawlessly since then. Hth

    hmm, maybe that's it then cause I did convert to ART the moment I started setting up which included a factory reset.

    Darn, hate to hear if that's it cause I can live with a couple apps I had not compatible like my CNBC app (I iddnt install and try but Google play says incompatible). But I really like the cast feature and works well on my G2 that I still have as well as my N4.

    And the funny thing is, both of those phones, G2 and Nexus 4, I have ART enabled on them! But CNBC app works on my G2 with ART.

    I had a problem the first time I tried to connect to Chromecast. I pushed the button, reset the device, and no problems since.

    I've tried rebooting it through the app, but I guess I can hit the button and do a hardware reset and try. Works on other phones mentioned though.

    Tried on my LG G3 with Art and it didn't work, changed back to Dalvik and it worked pretty well in most apps and games, then changed to Art and guess what, it's back to connecting then quickly goes to disconnecting, so the only way for me to make this work with my G3 is to revert to Dalvik.

    Thanks for verifying this. Man I like cast but dint want to switch back to Dalvik. Guess will wait on an update to fix this.

    Confirmed... for me at least... Switching back to Dalvik from ART, I was able to cast no problems.

    After three hard freezes where I'm doing something and all of a sudden frozen and the only way to reboot is pull the battery, had enough of ART and switched back. Disappointed really cause ART runs without an issue on my Nexus 4 that I had given to my daughter.

    If I read it correctly, my G3 is using ART, and screen mirroring works fine. My phone got very hot when I mirrored to run a video player that didn't have a casting option though. The phone got so hot it gave me a warning that it was too hot to charge.

    Just to make sure...

    I just factory reset the phone... and the first thing i did getting to home screen is download chromecast and did all app updates which include the latest google play services in order for chromecast to cast to tv. once i did that I ran chromecast and cast to screen and it worked.

    I rebooted the phone and enabled developers option and then enabled ART and went through the 212 app conversions. I once at the desktop i rebooted for good measure and first thing i did at homescreen was run chromecast and attempt to cast to screen and it immediately failed... showing "connecting" and then it says "disconnecting" and fails. which was what I experienced when I first got the phone.

    I switch from ART back to Dalvik, reboot once more after it was done for good measure and at homescreen run chromecast and cast... works perfectly.

    This is with an AT&T G3 completely stock after a factory reset, nothing uninstalled or disabled.
    For me, full casting to tv doesnt work with ART enabled.

    I did whatever it is you need to do to get the developer options and the runtime button says 'use dalvik'. I'm assuming this means I'm running ART, and my chromecast is working fine. I can check other settings, if you want. I'm using a T-Mobile G3 with a few apps installed. Nothing fancy going on here that I'm aware of.

    If it says, "Use Dalvik", you're currently running Dalvik.

    Weird. I thought use Dalvik would mean I would change from what I was using to Dalvik
