Audiostation webapi chromecast as remote player

Unread post by kenneth_vg » Mon May 14, 2018 7:31 pm


I would like to integrate audio in my home automation system using the audio station. I'm able to get a list of players though the url:
http://ip-address:5000/webapi/AudioStat ... ethod=list

However it's not listing my chromecasts (1 regular and 1 audio), only my TV and an old RPi. Is there a reason why chromecasts are not in this list? It's working fine through the ds audio android app on my phone.
