I just got my Chromecast and it rocks, but I can't seem to get it to play audio while tab-casting from Chromium. When using the direct cast options like youtube it works fine, and when I use other computers it also works fine, but on this laptop running Ubuntu and Chromium I get no audio. Kind of sucks because I'm really hoping to use spotify's web client to stream spotify to my living room, which was one of the main reasons I got Chromecast in the first place.

Has anyone else come across this problem? Any suggestions?

  • Same problem. Chromium on Ubuntu 13.10. Chromecast extension will send video, but not audio. – rcourtna Nov 3 '13 at 16:50

It appears that it's related with the HDMI port on the TV. I had this problem and at first I solved it turning off my home theater, so that the audio would come from the TV's speakers. Then, after reading this post I tried using the HDMI extender and now I get the sound from my home theater. I hope it helps.
