Hello!

I cannot see the mouse cursor anymore.

I am on A12L right now and everything was working perfectly on A12 version.

I can see the mouse cursor on the smartphone while casting but I cannot see it on the big screen.

Thanks for reading,

George.

Hi pipiou211,

 

Thanks for posting. Could you tell us more about what's going on so we can further assist you? Could you share a photo of the issue? Are you mirroring your phone to your TV?

 

I'll look forward to your response.

 

Thanks,

Jennifer

Wow! Thanks Jennifer!

Yea, I need help but i think I cannot solve the issues until Android 13 or even 14 come.

 

I need to route the sound to smartphone (to usb actually) while casting.

I also want a mouse cursor to appear while casting, and forget my smartphone's screen!

 

Thank you, George!

(Imagine a usb type-c mouse connected to the smartphone while casting)

Also in the other scenario imagine my Sony Pulse 3D usb-dongle attached to the smartphone!!!

I am owner of a Pixel phone and Chromecast gen 2!

If that matters, and I am satisfied already,

 

I am just trying to turn my smartphone into computer! Hehe

I was able to solve this, by editing r_submix_audio_configuration.xml file of Android on rooted device.

 

I was also being able to re-enable the mouse cursor on Chromecast by downgrading to Android 11!

 

Thanks, problems are solved.
