Summary0015967: Chromecast Playback stops periodically (fix with new CC libraries)
DescriptionWith build 866 running on Android 10, if playback is output to the chromecast, then it stops periodically (e.g. after 30 minutes)--I think it was upon completion of the track.

Here's a debug log from when this happened a week ago:
Description: Chromecast playback stopped

Another one from when I just replicated it (after 'Moby - Then it fell apart'):
Description: Chromecast playback stopped

And a third one that shows what happens immediately afterwards i.e.
1 Press Play / Next --> playback doesn't resume
2 Press 'Stop Chromecasting', and then press Play --> playback resumes
Log ID: 4NC7C1Z93H
Description: multiple attempts to restart Chromecast playback fail. playback only resumes once Stop Chromecast is clicked.

Note also the issue isn't track specific--I confirmed this as follows:
- I played the track by Moby - It fell apart' without chromecasting enabled, and playback didn't stop.
- I then played the track again with chromecasting enabled, and playback didn't stop.

I can see "Could not send response to the client" in your logs.
It looks like chromecast device stoped working in this case.
My experience is that chromecast devices are quite unstable sometimes and MMA is not able to fix all weird situation.

Tested with my chromecast and after 2 hours MMA is still playing.

Also MMA 2.0 will have to migrate to newest androidX libraries, which replaces the original support library APIs. So another deep testing of chromecast will be requiered with 2.0 version.

This only occurs for me periodically as well. Hopefully the new libraries in MMA 2.0 will solve this.

MMA build 882 crashes everytime I initiate chromecast playback on a Pixel 2 (Android 10).

Playback to CC Group: 2 auto-crashlogs + 1 manual log: R7UA53MVQQ
Playback to individual CC: 1 auto-crashlog + 1 manual log: 5KSQXBQMR3
Crash on chromecast activation (no playback): 1 auto-crashlog + 1 manual log: TA1FHMMCMD

These crashes do not occur with this build on an S8 running Android 9 or a Nexus 5x running Android 8, so it must be something specific to Android 10.

New logs supplied in Ticket # 1064

I tried on all Android devices I had from OS 6.0.1 -> 9.1 and could not replicate each device cast various file types and MM5 DLNA tracks and I got no interruptions.
