I can watch things like you tube. I can also watch short videos on Optus sport such as over night goals or game highlights but when I try and watch an actual game it doesn't load. Any ideas?

Hi @Jamess, Live content is still loading ok when watching directly from the device? Just no Chromecast?

Yes it works on the phone. Just not casting.

Hi @Jamess are you getting any errors when trying to cast the stream to the TV?

No errors just a black screen and the little wheel thing showing it's loading but stays on that

Hi Marie, I'm having a similar isssue. I am however not able to load anything via chromecast on the Optus Sport app. This works fine for Youtube and other apps, just not Optus Sport. It detects the chromecast and starts to load. I then get the error message "we have detected an unknown media error with the video you are casting and have stopped playback" this is on two devices, my Galaxy Tab A and Android phone. I am casting to Smart TV with Chromecast built in.

Hi @Gen_R I gave that number a call but as I got further into the menu it only gave me FetchTV options. I just tested it on an iPad an I am still getting the same issue.
