Summary0017766: Casting: Failed playback on a remote device should have a clearer error
DescriptionWhen playback on a remote device fails, the following error appears:
Playback failed: %s cannot be decoded.

This can be confusing to the user if they've played the file locally successfully, but then it fails with this message if they play to a remote device as it implies that MediaMonkey failed to decode the file rather than the remote device. A possible solution would be the following (which can be used for local or remote playback):
Playback failed: %s cannot decode %s.

Playback failed: MediaMonkey cannot decode VideoName.ext.
Playback failed: Kitchen Chromecast cannot decode VideoName.ext.
TagsNo tags attached.

Correct message show.

TEST NOTE: Add WMA manually to supported formats of Chromecast and play it on device, correct decode message shows.
