I've just installed the app on my tablet.

 

Launched it. Got the app and the "Touch to cast videos to your TV" overlay. I touched it, so now I'm casting to my Chromecast. It gives me the "LIGHTBOX ready to cast" screen.

 

Problem is - I can't close the overlay. If I press the X - I get the search button or the "Stop casting" button, as part of the same "Touch to cast" overlay. I can't actually use the app itself - the overlay is preventing me from pushing any of the app content.

 

Does this make sense?

 

 

How do I close this damn "Touch to cast" overlay?

When you hit the cast button in the app, the chromecast changes to the lightbox ready to cast screen.  Then in the app, you go find a video to play, and then the chromecast starts playing it.  At that point you can do something else with the tablet.

Yes, except that I couldn't do anything "in the app". None of its functionality was clickable while the overlay was on. Anyway, I restarted the app - that solved the problem. Probably some weird post-install glitch.

Hey @Kookoo

 

 

 

I know this reply is long past when you were having the issue, but just for info we resolved the issue you described: it was relating to a faulty 'overlay' for Chromecast users. It only shows the first time you cast (hence you never saw it again after quitting & restarting the app).

 

 

 

This has been fixed in the latest release. :)
