I recently purchased chromecast 2 and wanted to use it with Ubuntu 18.04. I searched here and saw all answers were from 2013 and nothing works. There is also an addon on chrome apps but that is old and discontinued. (Link)

Anyone here using chromecast 2 with ubuntu 18.04 ? This will be of great help

  • Do you want to cast to or from the Ubuntu system? What is the other system in the scenario (smart TV/Phone)? – Broadsworde Jul 10 '18 at 8:10
  • Basically want to cast media, browser(just like android) to chromecast i.e. ultimately to my TV. – Peter Jul 10 '18 at 8:11

    There are some other Chromecast plugins on the Chrome Web Store that are not discontinued chrome.google.com/webstore/search/chromecast. I can't vouch for any, but worth a try perhaps. – Broadsworde Jul 10 '18 at 8:19
  • Most of them are not updated and I hope someone here knows better solution, otherwise I will give them a try. Thanks for your response. – Peter Jul 10 '18 at 14:24

Casting from Chrome to Chromecast is now native function, you don't need any plugins. Just open options menu on the right and choose "Cast...". After click I can see both of my network Chromecasts (including Chromecast Audio).

    I am using ubunt 19.10 and Chromium Versão 80.0.3987.100 (Versão oficial) snap 64 bits. The Cast never finds the Chromecast. – Kaspacainoombro Feb 18 at 12:24
