So, I've switched to Ubuntu this week, it's all fine and good except for Chromecasting.
I installed Chrome but when I try to cast it says "No cast destinations found" even though it works from my phone.
I've tried Chromium and it does the same, I've also tried to install "Mkchromecast" after reading that that might help but "apt-get install mkchromecast" doesn't work and after downloading the .deb file, that won't install either.
Looking on Google there's not much to say this is happening for everyone, all I see are articles saying how much fun everyone's having Chromecasting.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can get this working? Or is it common knowledge that the Cast option in Chrome on Ubuntu is just there for decoration?
edit: see below comment about why this isn't a duplicate of the suggested question
edit: the ubuntu computer is connecting the same way as my phone, via wifi to the same router as the chromecast is on. I would have tried resetting the chromecast's connection from my computer following the steps on: https://support.google.com/chromecast/answer/2998456?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en but the "Set up your Chromecast using this computer" link doesn't show up and it seems you can only set up from a phone or tablet now.
edit: No VPN, firewall, or a proxy, unless something like that is used by default in Ubuntu somewhere but I doubt it is.
