So, I finally also got it to work, even though I'm a bit puzzled why!

I went all the way of opening the relevant ports in my ISP router, acquired a DDNS account through synology.me, got a Let's Encrypt certificate (through the control panel). This process took several days of work and learning TCP/IP basics.

During all this time, Chromecast Audio was powered off and packed away. Then, when I powered it on it just worked without any problem.

The reason why I'm puzzled is that Chromecast still operates in my private network and (as far as I know) the signed certificate from Let's Encrypt is (only?) valid in the public IP domain?

I have the similar issue for about 6month, I tried a lot.
Reset the Chrome cast audio work could only make it work for few days....
Today, my DS audio do not working again....
I test my chrome cast audio with another app, "Hi-Fi cast" (Android)

At the same time,
I find that the "Hi-Fi cast" could support DLNA/UPnP servers.
Thus, I installed "Media Server" on to the Disk Station.
And give this work around a try.

It work WELL without reset.
I hope that it could be a long term solution....
There should be some more app support "DLNA/UPnP server" + "chrome cast audio".

Or you may give it a try, too.
Good luck!
