We are having some issues at our school building where casts seem to be going from one chromebook to multiple chromecast devices at the same time. I'm trying to track it down, but I thought I would post in here as well in case someone has had similar experiences.
We have about 25 chromecasts hooked up to the same wifi network as our chromebooks which gives quite a list of available devices at any given time to cast to. This morning one teacher reported being able to cast to her room as normal, but it also showed up in the neighboring classroom. The teacher in the next door room was not casting at the time.
I noticed when I tried to recreate the issue that some of the devices show "casting screen" and some show "chrome mirroring". Does anyone know why it would be different? Could it be because of how they are casting (tab vs desktop)?
