By the info provided by user (at ) it seems that SSDP discovery really isn't working for Chromecast audio anymore (with 1.28.x release). We will need to switch the discovery method to mDNS, also for the manual addition the link returns 404, we will need to use JSON instead

Re-opened, in some environments it still fails to detect Chromecast audio and Google Home mini (ticket CJN-272-65378).
Workaround for some users was clicking the cast icon in MM5 and then immediatelly the cast icon in Chrome browser.
