This directory defines the Cast Web Runtime, an implementation of the
//components/cast_streaming Chromecast receiver, for use with the internal Cast Core library.
Building of this directory can be done by building the
chromecast/cast_core:core_runtime_simple target with the following build flags:
is_debug = true dcheck_always_on = true is_component_build = false symbol_level = 2 is_castos = true enable_cast_receiver = true cast_streaming_enable_remoting = true enable_cast_audio_renderer = false enable_cast_renderer = false ffmpeg_branding = "Chrome" proprietary_codecs = true
Running the Cast Web Runtime on Linux can be done with the following steps:
When running Cast Core, error
Unable to load application config from file <path>/app.conf because the file does not exist or could not be read: This occurs when the certificates were not generated correctly. Ensure they were generated for device type
When starting the Cast Web Runtime, hitting this DCHECK: This occurs when flags are not set correctly. Ensure you are using the correct config file for running on Linux.
When starting Cast Core, you hit this DCHECK: This occurs when the gRPC port is already is use. Kill the existing process using the following commands:
user$ netstat -ltnp | grep -w "10101" (Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.) tcp6 0 0 :::10101 :::* LISTEN <process id>/<path> user$ kill -9 <process id>
Then re-run Cast Core.
