Google Cast + Dolby Digital 5.1 Sound

I used to use Infuse 4.3.6, but now I bought a Chromecast Ultra, and realize that Dolby Digital 5.1 Sound is not working properly, it plays in Linear PCM 2.0.

So I tried Infuse 5.5.5 and it doesn’t work too. Streaming to Apple TV 4 it works perfectly.

Is Infuse compatible with Dolby Digital while streaming using Google Cast protocol?

Best Regards,

Not yet, but this is on our roadmap to add in an upcoming version.

Is HD Audio passthrough also possible on the Chromecast, i.e. can I play a Bluray from my NAS on my iPad and cast it to the Chromecast and still get DTS HD MA or Dolby TrueHD into my receiver?

Google Cast does not support HD audio formats at this time. Sorry.

Hi all,

6 months passed and no Surround Sound cast to Chromecast yet? Any news about that?

Best regards,

I’m eagerly waiting also!
