iOS SDK Chromecast

Adding support for Chromecast

In order to enable chromecast, a few extra steps need to be taken. These steps are described below.

  1. Upgrade to the latest THEOplayer iOS SDK release (≥ 1.0.3)
  2. To add chromecast support the first thing you need is to include the Cast Framework. The following guide will help you adding the Cast Framework binary.
  3. To enable chromecast on iOS the GCKCastContext shared instance should be set with a GCKCastOptions.
    let options = GCKCastOptions(receiverApplicationID: "A1B2C3D4")
    or use the default THEOplayer cast options.
  4. That 's it. When chromecast enabled devices are discovered, the player will display a chromecast button. The player also works nicely together with the Chromecast controls that are part of the Chromecast Framework, (e.g. GCKUICastButton or the mini controller).
