Description of Issue

When I play a playlist on the Google chromecast with Ethernet adaptor the first 2 or 3 songs will play fine but then every other will quickly skip through until the roon logo shows up.
I have made a video of the issue. If I can upload it.

Hi Dan,

Fellow user here. Just asking some questions:

Have you tried rebooting the Chromecast with its ethernet adaptor?

Other questions for clarity.

Does it skip if you just play an album and not a playlist?
Is there a change in resolution between tracks ( the one that played and the one that started skipping) that might be causing an issue?

Thanks for the reply,
It plays an album no problems straight through.
It plays a small playlist on shuffle of around 20 tracks fine.
I tried it again with my larger playlist of around 90 tracks and this time it played the first 7 or 8 songs fine then skipped 3 and is playing well now so I think it is getting better.
I must also add that it is a install of roon so maybe the tracks are still analysing?

If it is a new install then track analysis can cause issues. Try turning off analysis as a test and see if it works better. I just run with on demand analysis when I’m using the system, and then turn on analysis to work overnight when no one is listening.

Ok yes I will try that thanks.
Sounds like that is the issue as I’ve been playing this playlist for over an hour now and while it may skip 2 or 3 tracks it’s not skipping 10 or more and then crashing.

There is no issue with skipping tracks on a playlist when I am playing on my main zone which is via a Raspberry Pi 4 so it must a chromecast issue
