    Hello,

    I have setup the google app id and the jwplayer.com side of things to initialize the cast component. I am wondering why the cast function is still not showing through the player. Just an FYI, I am using a cloud-hosted jwplayer script on jwplayer.com

    Please advise,

    Hi. The plugin uses the self hosted version of the player, it has nothing to do with the JW Player dashboard.
    I have not informations about this functionality but, if something can be done for improving my product, I’m agree with it.
    Please let me have more details if you can and I will consider to implement this tool in a future update.
    Thanks.

    Hello,

    So basically, within the javascript setup, this needs to be added during the setup of jwplayer instance, such as “file”, “poster” etc.

    cast:{
    appid:”[GOOGLE APP ID]”,
    loadscreen:”/img.png”,
    endscreen:”/img.png”,
    logo:”logo.png”,
    railcolor:”#e31e76’
    }

    I have added this to the jwplayer js player on jwplayer.com so this information should be pulling if I specify that player on your plugin backend. But it isn’t. I can setup a quick test demo site for you to view if that helps.

    Thanks,

    Of course. If you tried to add that code to the player, just let me have a page link where I can see it.

    Here is the link:

    But my question is why isn’t it showing on the page source, even though it is enabled on the jwplayer player builder. Is there a conflict between or something?

    Nevermind, I have fixed the issue it the google app id needed to be published or associated to a cast receiver device for testing.
