    Streaming and casting issue

    We normally view films via Showbox, Megabox or Tea TV and cast them to the chromecast from our android phones.

    Last 48 hours we've been unable to do it on either phone. Anyone know of reasons for this?
    Or alternatively recommend a different streaming site?

    Cheers folks

    Can you cast you device to the tv at all ?
    If not, try turning everything off and back on again....... I have to restart my phone when I cannot cast.
    Showbox hasn't worked for quite a while for me. Don't know if anyone else is having issues.

    Good luck.

    If neither phone will cast to the chromecast unit, it should be a problem with the chromecast. Can you try it on another tv?
    Also, is it powered off a USB on the TV?. Try powering it from another supply.

    Tea TV and Showbox look to have been shut down recently...they are no longer working on my Android TV box. But there are plenty of alternatives out there....

    Can you cast other services to the device i.e. google videos?

    Try resetting the chromecast https://www.whistleout.com/CellPhone...with-WiFi-help

    Conduct a factory data reset by holding the reset button your dongle for 25 seconds

    Plex is starting to add some free films though at the moment it still seems to be evolving

    Yeah I haven't be able to get showbox for some time, and no megabox or tea tv since the weekend. However, my wife has managed to get tea tv on a different tele using a different chromecast. It's probably just the films that we are trying to watch that cause the problem.

    I've given up now and installed kodi (again) on a firestick and apart from not being able to identify cams before casting, it's working fine

    I've taken a pic of the screen that appeared and I had assumed it was possibly server down, film removed or even some sort of codec that needed updating.

    Everything else can be cast without a problem, so the wifi connection is still working.
