I've noticed my kid can no longer select under Media for YouTube recommended videos or even when I try to cast from my cellphone on the same wifi...all i get is audio but no video display. It randomly works when I ask to play YouTube videos but doesn't allow you to select another video and them bugs to only sound.
My son has been losing it as this was his method to non stop watch YouTube videos with our current paid membership. I've already reset the device and no luck.
Same here. I swiped away from the video, the audio kept playing, but now I cannot get the video to show. I think maybe it's because I accepted a YouTube premium trial, which allows YouTube audio to play in the background. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the cast, no luck.
Sorry for the late reply. I wanted to follow up and see if you are still in need of any help with your videos not casting to the device? Please let me know if you are still having any trouble from here, as I would be happy to take a closer look and assist you further.
Hey Jake, sorry i haven't had the chance to respond to this.
Things haven't been fixed. I have to tell Google to load a video, and the option to select from a list on the hub of like recommended videos is no longer there.
In other words, a kid may go up to the screen and start scrolling though YouTube and then make the selection. Now I'm forced to have it play something by voice before I can see videos
This is definitely still a problem. If you reset the 1st gen hub you can cast YouTube to it from a phone, ask it to play, etc. But if you navigate away, or ask more than one question the audio continues to play but you cannot get the video back - either by casting or tapping on a media offering on the screen. Super frustrating.
When I ask for Youtube video options, it used to show a list of options but it no longer displays any options for me to select. I can say video option no. One and it’ll play; but it’s anyone’s guess asto what it it will be
What is up with the non responsiveness of help staff? Obviously (in case he shows up again) these folks and myself (4 nest hubs no YouTube no settings available) are having what I'd consider to be a fatal error, since we mostly use it to play videos and a clock, in that order. There are non official forums elsewhere with thousands of users with the same problem. Statistically, I'd say that represents north of 90% of all users that use that functionality.
I think I have finally accepted the Hubs have been Google'd if ya know what I mean. Gone to the Tech Farm to live with grandpa Google Talk and Great Uncle Wave.
I sometimes joke that google products get worse, but it's no longer funny.
This problem has just struck our Nest hub today. Google is acknowledging voice commands to cast youtube videos but the screen just goes black. Same result when casting from other devices or selecting youtube videos from the device itself.
I've reboot and reset the device and the issue persists. Seems to be an issue with Youtube speficially as I can cast BBC iPlayer content fine.
Would love to hear if/how this can be fixed.
I'm sorry to hear you're not able to cast from your Samsung S22 phone to your Nest device using YouTube and Pandora. Let's take a look at it. A few questions: what Nest device do you have there? is it a Google Nest Hub 1st Gen, 2nd Gen, or a Google Nest Hub Max. Is it working via voice command if you ask it to play music? It would help a lot if you could do a sequential reboot by unplugging the power cord from your router followed by your Nest device. Restarting your phone might also help.
Tell me how it goes.
