Chromecast to youtube no sound

Community Member

Chromecast plays audio with everything except youtube.  This is recent; however, I don't use Chromecast very often.


This happens while casting from the youtube app as well as casting from Chrome. I've tried the latest Chrome on macOS (Version 98.0.4758.80 (Official Build) (x86_64)) as well as Windows (Version 98.0.4758.82 (Official Build) (64-bit)) I've even tried Chrome in Ubuntu.


I've tried powering the TV off. I did a complete reset of the TV and reinstalled Chromecast on Google Home.


Chromecast is built into a Philips TV 5000 series Part # 43PFL5922/F7

I suspect it is the 2nd generation because I believe it is NOT 4K (even though the TV is 4K); there is no model # anywhere on the TV or the documentation

System firmware version: 2050

Cast firmware version: 1.21.75378

Country code: US

I can't figure out how to upgrade Chromecast's firmware.

FWIW I'm running ethernet. I saw a post suggesting to set it up as wifi so it can upgrade, but it hasn't

(If you suggest updating the Chromecast device - please explain how to do it manually)


I'm using Google Home version 2.47.111


Any and all suggestions / ideas / rants are welcome.
